Didn’t mention in my feature on Jamey Wright, even if it is just sort of understood, but the right-hander said he hopes to return to the Dodgers next season.
“I’ve always wanted to play here,” Wright said. “I thought I had an opportunity to come here in 2008 and it didn’t work out. Ever since first coming here with the Rockies, there’s something about being here, being in L.A., being in this city. It’s something I’ve always want to get the opportunity to do.”
Wright, 37, won a spot with the team during spring training, an experience he has now undergone with some club an amazing seven consecutive years. He started as a long man, but as he continued to pitch well has now largely become a seventh- and eighth-inning guy.
“We’ve just been having a lot of fun all year,” he said. “This has been a great group of guys to play with and one of the most fun seasons I’ve ever had. That comes with winning. We’ve been in the hunt the whole time. I knew come this time, we’d be in this position."
