If there's one team that can definately afford him it's the Dodgers.
With Wolf, Gonzalez, Saenz, Hendrickson and Tomko off the payroll, they save about $25 million. And if Kent retires, that's another $9 million off the books for a combined total of roughly around $32-35 million.
And there are plenty of expiring contracts in 2008. Furcal, Lowe, Garciaparra, and Loaiza all are in the last year of their contracts. That's another $38 million off the books.
Seemingly, you would think signing A-Rod is a must for McCourt.
Only question is can Colletti negotiate with Boras?
