07:40 AM ET 12.13 | As far as Phase Two goes, it's a matter of so far, so good. [The] Dodgers are disinclined to sign [Stephen Drew], according to major league sources. They're publicly downplaying their chances of landing [David Price]. And they're declining comment on [Matt Kemp], even after the outfielder's agent, Dave Stewart, said he received an assurance from Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti that Kemp would not be moved. A near-perfect rollout, thus far, of Phase Two. The question is, will the Dodgers stick to the plan? ... We've yet to see a limit with the Dodgers' new ownership, yet to see them draw a line. They spend money to make money, and they're quite successful at it. So, if they need to keep three big-money outfielders as part of a four-man rotation, fine, no problem.

Gotta admit, the Dodgers have spent and spent, but seem to be on the right track. They have lots of assets, and money to spend.

I was surprised that they didn't make it to the World Series last year. They have a good shot at it again in the coming season too assuming they sign their ace.

Colletti realizes that it's inevitable that one of his four OF's will wind up on the DL at some point and time during the season.

Recent history proves this to be true.

They're savages. They're beyond salvation. Just burn Dodger Stadium to the ground and then salt the earth where it once stood so nothing ever grows there.

Kemp has become a injury-prone player,and with that hefty contract attached on the OF no team will take him on any trade unless,the dodgers pay in full Kemp's contract,
wonder why its not good to give up big long term contracts??injuries are a big bump where any team
likely hit the wall,,,

The fun part will be seeing who has to sit and how that individual handles it.

The Dodgers must win big next season OR we will be seeing the reprise of the Red Sox in 2011/12, big contracts, little results.
I expect them to win, but if not it may be ugly!
