    The Dodgers new ownership is trying to follow the Yankee business model. Build a team of stars, spend a boatload, become the "evil empire" that everyone either loves or hates, and make money.

    As much as this sucks, I can't say I blame ownership here. No matter how much money you have, pissing away tens of millions of dollars (or more) is never a good idea. The Boss is gone, get over it. When the Dodgers drunken spending spree blows up in their face, that will be one less team that does it that way..

    WTF. For 12M or so, I'd have just signed Reynolds and AJ Piers, and just went to war with that...
    You seriously cannot put Youkilis and Reynolds in the same league.

    Career wise, of course not..

    Right now, maybe. And especially considering all the things we need besides 3B, and the budget is ultra-tight, would have used that extra money elsewhere.

    Not saying he's great, but this team couldn't use 30 Homers from 3rd?

    What if Youk continues to suck? Then we basically have Mark Reynolds with less power

    It doesn't count towards payroll at least officially when using it against the luxury tax.

    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays have traded James Shields and Wade Davis to the Royals.

    Rays got 3 or 4 VERY GOOD prospects. Unbelievable. They strike again.

    Its pretty predictable what the Yankees will do. Youkilis, Ichiro, Ibanez, stick with their own crap at catcher. Exciting.

    Seems like Indians are close to signing Reynolds....I see Youk coming here. I know he gets quite a bit of hate but I think he will do real well in YS

    Considering their track record with recent prospects it's not crazy to see them deal them here.

    Good trade for both here I think. Rays get young offense they need. Royals get proven starters to build a more competitive major league team.
