The $120 Million Roster

Well, The $97,737,568 Roster, after the $22,262,432 in deferred payments this year. Using Eric's payroll sheet here as my primary source for 2012 figures on current Dodgers, here goes. Would you be happy rooting for this team? What do you think of my Loney, Kemp and Kershaw extensions? Friendly faces return to 3B, no rookies in this rotation, and no trades involved because I couldn't quantify the Nedness.
