The Dodgers Plan To Spend And Other MLBullets

The Oakland A's and Seattle Mariners are tied atop the AL West at 1-1, and each has the best record in baseball. Now they return to exhibition baseball. The latest from around the league...

  • The Los Angeles Dodgers have had nominal new owners for only a couple days, but they're already telling everyone how much money they're going to spend. No, not the $2 to $2.15 billion they're spending on buying the franchise. They're talking about how much money they're going to spend on free agents. "Other teams are [spending a lot of money in free agency]," Magic Johnson said this week. "It's not just the Yankees. The Angels invested a lot of money into Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson. You see what the Tigers just did with Prince Fielder. Teams are investing. That's what you do when you put a winning team on the field. We're not going to be any different from those teams .... Also, we would love to copy the Yankees' success. If you're saying, 'Do we want to be the Yankees?,' the answer is yes. We want to win the World Series. We do want to win." MLB agents everywhere thank you, Magic.
