    Not with you this year. Was with you 170 strong last year but fuck Torre/Colleti for how they did the O-dog.

    Dodgers re-sign Ronnie Belliard, but want less belly
    The infielder's one-year, $825,000 deal will be guaranteed only if he weighs 209 pounds or fewer at training camp.

    Get in shape. Or else.

    That is what's implied by the wording in the contract bearing the signature of Ronnie Belliard, who on Tuesday re-signed with the Dodgers for one year to compete with Blake DeWitt and Jamey Carroll for the starting job at second base.

    Belliard, 34, will be guaranteed $825,000 this year, but only if he tips the scales at 209 pounds or fewer at some point during spring training, according to multiple sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the clause.

    Belliard was one of two players signed by the Dodgers on Tuesday, the other being 40-year-old backup catcher Brad Ausmus, who agreed to a guaranteed one-year, $1-million deal that includes a $1-million mutual option for 2011.

    The Dodgers want Belliard get down to 209 pounds because that was how much he weighed at the end of last season, when he played a surprisingly significant part in the their run to the National League Championship Series. Acquired from Washington in late August to be a utility player, he ended up replacing Gold Glover Orlando Hudson in the in the lineup in the postseason.

    A career .275 hitter over 12 seasons, Belliard hit .351 with five homers and 17 RBIs in 24 regular-season games for the Dodgers. He hit .300 in the playoffs.

    Belliard was out of the Dodgers' price range for most of the winter but fell back into their laps for significantly less than the $3.85 million they committed over the next two years to the 35-year-old Carroll. Belliard can earn an additional $250,000 in incentives this year based on plate appearances.

    For DeWitt, 24, who was pushed to the bench by Hudson last year, the addition of Belliard could result in his being moved out of the opening-day lineup for the second straight year by a late bargain signing. Only this time, DeWitt is unlikely to get a chance to make the major league roster as a bench player because the Dodgers would have a viable veteran option for that role.

    "He's going to have to play," General Manager Ned Colletti said, indicating DeWitt would start the season at triple A if he is not named the starter.

    If DeWitt wins the job, Colletti said the Dodgers could start the season with seven infielders, noting that Carroll and backup shortstop candidate Nick Green can play the outfield. The Dodgers expect that Belliard will occasionally spell Casey Blake at third base and James Loney at first.

    Colletti said the team still seeks a veteran fourth outfielder, but would not dismiss the possibility of adding a pitcher before the start of camp.

    Ausmus, who started 27 games as Russell Martin's backup and hit .295 in 95 at-bats last year, will draw a base salary of $850,000 this year. If he or the team declines his 2011 option, he will be paid $150,000.

    The Dodgers don't like adding talent to their roster. Hopefully Ramirez can stay off the steroids and still hit with power.

    1 - thinks McCourt will bankrupt the team for 2 years, then sell under public scrutiny / pressure
    2 - thinks Kemp may get moved, per him staff / teammates hate him. Wreaked of Jackson hatchet jobbing him b/c he has had a tough time dealing with him
    3 - thinks Torre is tired of McCourt's cheapness and bs, and won't be back next year.

    I'm indifferent to Torre moving on, but every other point is exactly why I don't follow the Dodgers closely other than what happens on the field. The front office shit is way too frustrating nowadays.

    Re: **Official Los Angeles Dodgers 2010 Thread**

    What you need Torre for is to deal with shit like the Matt Kemp situation, assuming there's truth to it. He's very good at clubhouse management, etc. His subtle comments during the Kemp / Ned dustup were very short, but very powerful I thought.

    But his on field managerial skills are below average. He overuses the pen, and if I see one more pitching hit for himself only to then be on a "give up a single/walk and I'm yanking you in the next inning" plan I'm going to lose it.

    The boys in blue are rolling. With the series in hand after two, I'm thinking Joe decides to empty the bench in tomorrow's game.

    Would be nice break out the broom.

    Good to see Kershaw being dominant again. Love watching him pitch when he's not walking every other hitter.

    Also, I think the Dodgers should trade Kemp to the Tigers. You could totally have Austin Jackson and anyone else you like.

    on one of our sites, they said Coco Crisp missed a month with a similar injury. Hopefully we see a lot of Xavier Paul / Reed Johnson platoons and very little of Garrett Anderson.

    Joe decides to send Billingsley back out there to pitch the 8th after he got hit hard in the 7th. I know he's throwing a shutout but I have a feeling he's about to get in trouble. Please let me be wrong.

    Classic Torre, let the pitcher hit for himself, and then have him on a 1 baserunner gets the hook scenario in the bottom of the inning.
