    If they are as good as their spending for 2013, the Dodgers will be expected to win it all by those who belive "you have to pay the market".

    Which, of course, means they won't win.

    Hey Amp

    My Yankees have proven over time big spending is only part of the equation.

    A big payroll guarantees you will be competitive not much else.

    The Dodgers look great on paper.  But they still need to have great chemistry as a team. 

    In 2012, everyone picked the Angels and Rangers.  But it was Oakland who won the division despite a $59 million payroll and five rookie pitchers.

    Yeah I think I remember the Red Sox winning it all in 2011 around this time of year too...unfortunately they had to play a 162 game schedule!

    Nothing in baseball can be guaranteed every player has a season as bad as his best season thus we have averages. It is why fans do not understand the fact that money spent does not equal a better year than the guy who spent less. Yes it gives you a better chance but never a guarantee. 

    If anything the teams with a lesser payroll may actually have a better shot because of being able to play without expectatiosome except that those teams have less depth at all positions which actually maybe the deciding factor.

    Sure, the Didgers have spent a fortune.

    And yes, teh dodgers now have an incredible roster.

    But look at what our sox have done.  Are you overlooking the Gomes acquisition already? 

    Gomes will make you all forget about Billy Hatcher.

    Didnt we already go that route and it didnt work? Papi, Gonzo, CC, Ells, Pedey etc...Sounds like a championship lineup...

    Its a shame that after a 69 win season some expect to be a championship calibur team in one offseason after trading 3 all star players...Yup, shouldve just signed Grienke and hamilton, right?
