    they had their first chance in 2012

    how did that work out?
    It worked out that 30 days isn't enough time to evaluate a multi-year contract, but enough time to build equity to secure $6+ BILLION in TV revenue.

      FACT the Dodgers did not make the playoffs
      FACT 2012 counts in evaluating the Dodgers mega trades

      FACT: You don't like that Dodgers are trying to improve from last season.
      Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

          FACT: People usually hate the things that they're afraid of. The more afraid they are, the more they hate.

          It's pretty obvious someone is very afraid of what the Dodgers are becoming.

            Yeah, it was a lot more fun for him to joke about Frank McCourt, the divorce, and the bankruptcy.

                  Pretty sure you were all smiling when the Dodgers announced they were filing for bankruptcy in 2011. I never specifically said you did it here on BF.

                      Doesn't mean you weren't happy about the bankruptcy. And please, don't use Bryan Stow to mask your happiness when the Dodgers filed for bankruptcy. It's not like you're related to him that you were concerned about him 24/7. In fact, why not go further back before the Stow incident? How did you feel when it was announced that Frank and Jamie were filing for divorce? It was a sign of things going downhill for the Dodgers, am I right?

The Yankees have had a bazillion dollars to spend for years now but over the last 10 years how many All-Star caliber players have they signed and developed? Robinson Cano, and, umm, umm, Robinson Cano? The Yankee's title run from 1996-2003 was led by players the Yankees signed and developed (Jeter, Williams, Posada, Rivera, Pettitte, El Duque, etc.). No matter how smart a team is or how much money a team has, having so many high caliber players come up basically at the same time involves some luck as well. The Kansas City Royals did the same thing during their great run in 1976-85. Most of their key players were players they signed and developed. This is also true with the current group of San Francisco Giants, 10 of the 25 players on the 2012 post season roster were home grown.
                                Cano, Hughes, and Cabrera. Kennedy should have been.
