Dodgers' Colletti: 'We're buying'

Posted on: July 24, 2010 2:42 pm
 
The Dodgers haven't been acting this season like a team with money to spend, but general manager Ned Colletti insists the team is willing to take on payroll and lose prospects -- within reason, of course -- to contend this season.

"It's a fun time of the year," Colletti told the Los Angeles Times. "Because now you get a chance to see who's serious and who isn't. We make far more calls than we get. It shows we're active. Shows we're trying to be active. We're buying."

Colletti said he's looking for back-end starters (the Dodgers appear to be out of the mix on Roy Oswalt), relievers and outfield depth.

The Dodgers' biggest challenge is that their farm system is pretty thin at the upper levels, so they don't have much in the way of major-league ready prospects to offer. Their system is stronger at the lower levels, which might make them a better trading partner for a building team. Pirates left-handed starter Paul Maholm would seem to be a decent fit.

Yeah sure they are! They are too cheap to be buyers at the deadline! You're right they are probably waitning for someone to show up on the waiver wire! LOL

That's about all they can afford these days!!

Better get used to a lot of losing for many years because that's whats going to happen!


The Dodgers traded for Ted Lilly who has been a great addition to the pitching staff. Once again Benblows does'nt know what the hell he's talking about and I just hope the Dodgers can return the favor to the Giants and make them miss the playoffs.

Go Dodgers!

Ned Colletti insists the team is willing to take on payroll and lose prospects -- within reason, of course -- to contend this season. This is Coletti's way of saying he's waiting for some one to drop a Padilla on waiver so they can pick him up cheaper. Coletti's waiting by his waiver machine waìtng for zambrano to get axed.  It worked out last year, so it has to work out every year.  There's sure to be a few Thome here and there.  The "good stuff" from the trash bin.
