    Even a 3rd grader knows you can't compare this current triple-threat dynamic with any previous era in Dodger history.

    Farm/scouting system being rebuilt to be the best in MLB +
    Stan Kasten and Logan White putting all the pieces in place +
    BILLIONS OF DOLLARS =

    The beginnings of a Dodger Dynasty.

      Stan Kasten

      mighty Stan Kasten

      the immortal Stan Kasten

      LOL

      someone said a line the other day that was so funny - something about Magic Johnson buying the Raiders or similar

      too funny

        I guarantee you that you wish Loria was the Dodger owner instead, so stop pretending to feel good about the Dodgers having owners that have deep pockets and a commitment to fielding a competitive team every year. Ask yourself this, brother: if Frank McCourt managed to field better teams than the Giants in 5 of the 8 years under his ownership, what you gonna do when the Guugenheims run wild on you?

        Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

        If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

            I think a strong LA franchise is good for baseball

            The Dodgers are truly a storied franchise

            I am just not buying that spending a ton of money guarantees championships

                What would be good for baseball is for the Giants and Dodgers to be good at the same time. That hasn't really happened since the 1960's. Can you imagine what a seven game Giants-Dodgers NLCS would be like?! Crazy pandemonium! :hyper:

                    talk is cheap

                    they had their first chance in 2012

                    how did that work out?

                      Who said anything about just spending for the sake of buying championships? Kasten goes on a record for saying investing in the farm system, which means not only better scouts domestically, but internationally instead. They will also sign first round draft picks that would be hard for other teams to sign.

                          If the Dodgers win the pennant in 2013 I assume you'll still be defending your claim that the trade "backfired" because they didn't gel in the first 30 days of their Dodger career.

                            how did that work out?

                            A half season of the current roster. 2 games short of making the playoffs. Didn't fail miserably as you want to imply, did they?

                                FACT the Dodgers had a 7.5 game lead in the 2012 season
