    Both.

    I'm excited about right now and the chances of winning a championship, but on the other I fear spending ourselves to oblivion down the line to the point of being stuck with these contracts. I look foward to having a better farm system, no doubt.

    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.

    Not sure why anyone would fear the future... After what we went through as fans under McCcourt , we can only look up and feel the excitement of what new ownership is doing in such a short time. People fail to realize that Dodger Ownership is spending quite a bit of money on the major league roster, but also spending quite a bit of money on our farm system as well. Once these large contracts get traded away or expire, we should still be in a position to contend in the West with a good mixture of youth and veterans. I for one am excited for the upcoming season and the future. Go Doyers!!!!

    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.

    As a fan, you have to enjoy that the new ownership group is committing to making the team better. But there is plenty of risk, as we have seen plenty of teams load up in free agency before and it not work out.

    Of course, the Dodgers are not just loading up on free agency, but taking on contracts in trades. But it's essentially the same thing.
    basically this.

    It would be somewhat equal for me, but rooting for a sports team is all about rooting for them to win a championship, and the Dodgers have a great chance to do just that.

    Its like being a Yankee fan now. If you dont win the WS your season was worthless. There isnt really positives to pull from it. Id hate to have that feeling. But at least you can expect to compete for a WS every year

    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.

    But were you worried in December? That's the point.

    Sure it's not your money, but when teams spend wildlly it tends to bite them in the *** down the line and restricts them from making good moves when they need to because they have too much allocated to a certain group of players.
