    You could ask the posters in the Dodgers forum

    Its "if" you were a Dodgers fan.
    Most people in the LA forum would probably pick option B.
    It needs to be non-biased
    however, Dodger fans are welcome to vote and post their opinions

    The general consensus is "B", but they have a lot of talent and money doesn't appear to be an issue so...

    never would i want my fav team to spend 147 million dollars on a pitcher, especially since he's not even in the top 5

    It's World Series or bust for them.

    I'd be pretty goddamn nervous.

    I disagree. It's playoffs or bust obviously, and once you get there who knows.

    Also why should the fans be nervous? The owners and the front office should be nervous, it's their money, there's no reason for the fans to be anything but excited.

    Coming soon to a TKRO stadium near you

    I think I've said this before, and probably missed your response.

    But there are some obvious situations in today's MLB where there have been teams (Sawx and Yangx) shelled out money, traded prospects and are now dealing with the repercussions. They didn't spend their money wisely, and look what happened. I don't think you want what happened to us or what looks like is about to happen to the Yankees to happen to the Dodgers.

    That might just be a stupid comparison and if it is, feel free to say "Evan, you're being baseball ignorant again", and I'll go on my way.

    I think considering the expectations I'd be a little nervous, but it would certainly, at least right now, be offset by the excitement of the team that's on the field.
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.

    I'm confused. What's there to be nervous about? My favorite team has one of the best rosters in the sport, and have an ownership that's shown a clear willingness to win whatever the cost. I'll be nervous if they're 40-50 at the All Star Break, that's for sure. And I'll be nervous if guys like Adrian Gonzalez or Carl Crawford fall flat on their faces early on (less so with Beckett or Hanley as they're more short term investments), but right now, why be nervous?

    If I was a Dodgers fan, I'd be happy about the willingness to spend, there's no denying that. I'd just be really frustrated with how they've decided to spent. Kershaw and Kemp are really awesome players, and Greinke is a very nice addition, but none of the others around them are peaking in their careers. I don't think the Hanley pickup was a good one, and likewise I through the Boston trade was just ridiculous.

    As I said in the Royals trade thread regarding Dayton Moore, I think the Dodgers ownership and front office are trying to make a big splash and I think they'll drown in it. I really am not a fan of any of the National League teams, so it isn't like I'm bitter that a team I follow has to compete with them, I just think they should have been smarter about allocating their resources.

    Alot of us red sox fans thought the same way, how did that work out for us? Just saying... everything always looks great on paper, but they have to produce on the field for it to be worth anything.

    You aren't nervous about Carl Crawford yet?
