Maybe I'll just never understand the economics of baseball. Or maybe I'll just never understand numbers that have 6 zeroes after them. But I'll definitely never understand the LA Dodgers.
Those that still remember Darren Dreifort probably remember the contract more than the pitcher. And rightfully so. Somehow the Dodgers spent $55M in the winter of 2000 on the promise that maybe this pitcher with a history of arm trouble who had never delivered on his potential would bloom into one of the best arms in the game.
He didn't. His arm imploded. Sound like today's pitching market?
