08:12 AM ET 12.11 | Nearly by the day, we are finding out just how deep the Dodgers' pockets are. The Dodgers spent $147 million on Saturday and $36 million on Sunday. There's more where that came from. No one believes the Dodgers are done spending, and the only question is who the next beneficiary will be. Two possibilities who have been discussed, according to sources: Kevin Youkilis and Anibal Sanchez. Youkilis seems to be a better fit than Sanchez, particularly since manager Don Mattingly told reporters last week that he plans to use Hanley Ramirez at shortstop rather than third base. That leaves Luis Cruz to play third, but also opens up the possibility that they could sign Youkilis to play there.

This really reminds me of The Onion story about The Boss signing every player in ML baseball.

Sure sounds like it to me.

But can they somehow finagle their way into the bottom of the AL East?

First they need to hire Bobby V.

I can agree with this.

The missing ingredient. Sign both Youk and Bobby V at the same time, and you have the recipe for another Divine Comedy.
