I DON'T BLAME HIM . . .

If the Dodgers are going to pay Furcal an average of over $13M per year for 3 years, I'd take it too, regardless of any stated affinity for winning (knowing how many big question marks the Dodgers have) and friends (Sorry, Andruw, Aramis, and Neifi).

But I do have mixed feelings if this is true. While I would like to have a good SS and leadoff hitter like Furcal in Wrigley, $13M per year is a little steep for what he brings to the table. But, on the other hand, it is only a 3 year commitment.

My sneaking suspicion is that Dusty and Neifi conspired to sabotage this deal so that Neifi would get the starting SS job he so richly deserves . . .
