James Loney is having a good offseason L.A. Dodger James Loney Crashes Maserati -- Allegedly Spits at Cops | TMZ.com
What does suck though is that so many of these recent Dodgers deals are backloaded to be low in 2012 and then jump significantly in 2013 which will make it tough next offseason to spend. Hopefully Ned (or the new GM) can dump off some of these deals in July. There are bound to be some teams looking for starting pitching (Lilly, Harang, Capuano), relievers (Guerrier) and bench players (Hairston, Uribe). Is it bad to be hoping for a a fire sale before the season even starts?

Courts have to approve bid. Also McBankrupt is stalling as well.
Colletti could have decided not to sign a bunch of washed up trash and spent that money on Kuroda and maybe even Fielder instead, but noooooooooooooooo...
They couldn't even throw some chump change at Zumaya in hopes that his arm wont fall off during the season? I would rather they give him $800 K -1 M based off incentives than blow that cash on any minor league bench player/washed up has been they've spent money on so far this offseason.
Dodgers put debt at $573 million - latimes.com
Whoa.In addition to the $573 million in debt and $131-million divorce settlement, Frank McCourt's attorneys have said a sale could result in up to $200 million in taxes. That would put McCourt's total obligations at up to $904 million, not counting any income tax penalties or liability to Stow's family.
Dodgers secretly bid big for Prince - CBSSports.com
Sure would've been nice...The Dodgers' offer was said to have called for an average salary of about $26 million for the first four years and something in the low $20-million-range in the next three years. The bid was designed not to discourage Fielder from opting out and possibly moving to the American League where he could DH after the first four years. The total Dodgers deal was believed to have been worth in the low $160 millions.
