If the proposed trade goes through that will be $250 million in salary going over to the Dodgers...

AGonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto...

With Hanley Ramirez, Shane Victorino, Joe Blanton and Brandon League already moved over...wow...just wow...

Boston's really tearing it all down already? And the Dodgers are crazy enough to take on this much salary? Any team is crazy enough to take on Carl Crawford with that contract? This is just mind blowing in a number of ways.

It just amazes me that anyone would take on Crawford. Adrian, that makes sense. Crawford is basically Vernon Wells at this point.

What amazes me more is that they are willing to give up talent too (De La Rosa and Webster are top 100 guys) for the privilege to pay Crawford $20 million a year for 5 years, a declining A-Gonz $21 million for 6 years, and Beckett $16 million for two more years. In one move they practically added the Pirates payroll and the jump up to $160+ a year, the new Yankees?

I'm just going to assume that the question mark is a typo.

I can tell you that the fans out here in Dodger land are very happy with the moves.

Also, for a matter of perspective, seats that go for $35 back at PNC Park (or did a few years ago) fetch $300+ at Dodger Stadium. A good team that puts butts in the seats (for innings 3 through 7) can afford some massive contracts.

A batting order with Kemp, Hanley, and AGonz is going to be fun to watch. Almost as fun as Gaby Sanchez, Barmes, and Barajas.

Now I want the wildcard spot for us even more! Would be poetic justice to the big market teams if we can somehow hang on and take it.

Texas has California beat for looniness every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

Too bad Dodger fans will only be able to watch it for 36 more games. For a team that wouldn't make the playoffs if the season ended today, the Dodgers are taking an awfully expensive gamble.

Huh??? I assume you are joking there. Last time I checked Texas was running a budget surplus while California was teetering on Bankruptcy with no plans on reigning in entitlement spending.

I was actually referring to the Texas judge (his name is Tom Head) who wants to raise property taxes to help pay for training a militia for when Obama wins re-election and secretly facilitates U.N. troops invading the country from Mexico.

EDIT: Previously, I had misstated Tom Head's position in government as "sheriff". I have corrected the error.

Dude, calm down. I've had entirely enough people on this board jump down my throat because of innocuous comments today. California has its brand of wacky. Texas has its brand of wacky. Let's just agree to disagree over which wacky is wackier, OK?

California may be wackier than Texas, but I'd still move/vacation there over Texas.

LOL. I thought this was a civil debate. At what point exactly did I "Jump down your throat"?

Unless you want government handouts and want 60% of your paycheck to go to taxes, Texas is the better bet.
