I understand this might be bad timing for introduction with the recent loss. But what a way to shed all those bad memories of the McCourt ownership right? Spending a ton of money is just one way to have a good baseball team and I don't understand the hate that some are giving the Dodgers.
With that said, with most of the core (besides Hanley) signed through at least 2017. What do you think a realistic payroll is for this Dodgers team in the next few years when it is presumably going for it all? The Dodgers are losing quite a few important pieces this year that it won't be able to replace at the same cost in the FA market (Nolasco, Uribe). So how high can this payroll go? 250? Lower? Higher? And what do you think would be the driving force or limiting factor. How would the luxury tax complicate things and how soon?
It should be a really interesting (and probably fun) offseason coming for you guys.
Looking forward to the discussion! Cheers!
