McCourt’s Dodgers: One Last Hurrah?

I was initially leery at the Dodgers’ attempt to pretend their financial situation is well with the ‘signings‘ of Matt Kemp and Chad Billingsley. The respective two-year and one-year deals did nothing to assuage concerns about the club’s financial wherewithal and viability.

That said, today they tacked on two-year deals for both Andre Ethier and Jonathan “Cannibal” Broxton, as well as avoiding arbitration with organizational stalwart Russell Martin, and homegrown talents Hong-Chih Kuo and James Loney.

While the offseason ‘big move’ has yet to come to fruition, Colletti is doing his best with limited resources (and literal handcuffs) to at least keep the Dodger foundation intact for another couple of years.
