Damn moneyball, and damn everything about it. I had no problems with the theories when it was the Oakland A's trying to put a square peg into a round hole. But, now, we've got acolytes like Depodesta running the Dodgers into the ground. The only reason the A's were so succesful was because they had the Hudson, Mulder, and Zito. Why are the Dodgers even trying to be a Moneyball team. They're a big market team that should rival Yankees or Red Sox in spending. How could MLB let McCourt 'buy' the Dodgers when he cleary didn't have the money. The potential 3 way deal with the Yankees and Arizona doesn't make any sense for the Dodgers at all unless the goal is to dump salary.
