jesse's got himself a post

thanks to his status as a dodger double dipper!

orosco first came to the dodgers in 1988, just in time for his second world series title in 3 years.  here's his 1989 score card.
orosco teamed with jay howell to lead the dodger bullpen to the fruits of victory in 1988, but he was one and done - leaving la for cleveland as a free agent.

after three seasons with the indians, orosco was traded to the brewers, as evidenced by his 1994 topps card:
after milwaukee, it was five seasons in baltimore and one in saint louis before orosco returned to the dodgers.  here's his 2002 topps traded card
orosco stayed for two years this time, appearing in 91 games for the dodgers.  by this time, he had already passed hoyt wilhelm and dennis eckersley to claim the top spot on the career games pitched list. orosco split the 2003 season between the padres, yankees and twins, and although he signed a contract with the diamondbacks after the season ended, he didn't make it back to the majors.

here's to you jesse orosco - another dodger double dipper!
