70 Million!

The Dodgers' bid was 70 million! What was DePodesta supposed to do? Bid against himself? Remember how well that worked with Kevin Brown?

It is becoming increasingly clear that the Dodgers were to be used as a stalking horse for the Mariners to bid one dollar more. Why this would be the case might be an issue (since re-signing Jim Tracy didn't seem to solve the problem), but remember when you hear from Boras and Beltre over the next couple of days that the Dodgers might have cost them ten to twenty million dollars more by refusing to be dragged into a prolonged, no-win process. It would be enough to make a guy...pretty bitter.
