As if suffering the indignity of losing his job as the Dodger closer wasn't bad enough, Yhency Brazoban arrived at the Turner Field visitors clubhouse Tuesday to find his first name misspelled as "Yhancy." And while it only takes a magic marker to fix the name, it appears it will take much more for Brazoban to regain his former job as the rookie right-hander still has not been called on to warm up during a game since his demotion Thursday.

The Dodgers didn't experience much of a drop-off early in the 2005 season when Yhency Brazoban filled in for injured closer Eric Gagne and converted 21 of 25 save opportunities. Then Brazoban pretty much fell off the Dodgers' radar the next two seasons as injuries limited the right-hander to five games in 2006 and four games in 2007.

Steve Howe always was tough to pin down. The self-destructive left-handed Dodger pitcher is proving an elusive target for closer Yhency Brazoban. Howe, whose career was plagued by drug problems, holds the record for saves by a Dodger rookie, with 17 in 1980. Brazoban has been stuck on 16 for more than two weeks, mainly because his team rarely takes a lead into the late innings.

The Dodgers lost one pitcher Friday when they returned reliever Yhency Brazoban to the disabled list. But they added two others, calling up left-hander Hong-Chih Kuo and reliever Eric Hull from triple-A Las Vegas. And they could be getting right-hander Jason Schmidt back soon, depending on how he does in a bullpen session today. Brazoban, who pitched just five innings last season before needing Tommy John surgery in his right elbow, felt something pop in his shoulder on his 13th pitch Thursday.

It's the top of the ninth inning at Dodger Stadium. The home team is holding a slim lead and the crowd is holding its breath in anticipation of blaring rock 'n' roll, of psychedelic eye candy rimming the stadium, of the bullpen gates bursting open and a goggle-eyed, goateed Canadian behemoth emerging to begin his trot toward the mound. But Chavez Ravine is a much quieter place these days.

Reliever Yhency Brazoban is about to join a handful of rookies to have pitched in 100 games. Brazoban has been in 67 games this season, tying the Dodger rookie record for one season set by Duaner Sanchez, who made 67 appearances last year. But Brazoban also made 31 appearances in August and September last season, giving him a total of 98.

Handstands were in order. But Paul DePodesta was carrying his toddler son, so he allowed himself only a contented smile. For a day, anyway, the Dodger general manager's heavily criticized philosophies were vindicated in a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins. All the Dodger runs came on home runs. The defense was shaky but not catastrophic. Six pitchers thrived on strikeouts and clear-cut roles.

Yhency Brazoban will report to spring training today. Or he might not. Brazoban hurt his arm pitching in the Dominican Winter League. Or he didn't. Brazoban won't pitch for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic. Or he might. Definitive answers are elusive when it comes to the enigmatic relief pitcher and a country where news travels slow and seems to change with the trade winds. Visa problems apparently kept Brazoban from reporting Wednesday along with other pitchers and catchers.

In the previous two days, owner Frank McCourt and General Manager Paul DePodesta shouldered their shares of the blame for the Dodgers' consistently inconsistent season while absolving Manager Jim Tracy. And while Tracy would not admit to breathing more easily over the votes of confidence, he did allow for some reflection. "It's very flattering, when you get right down to it," Tracy said Saturday afternoon. "[But] I don't look at it that way.
