McCourt & Agent Ned Addicted to Debt - Dodgers paying $16.3M in 2011 to guys no longer with team

16

Great breakdown of the 2011 Fodgers' payroll for the 2011 season. Their 25 man payroll should come in around $94.5M, while their deferred payments to ex-Fodgers adds up to $16.3M - that's over 17% of the cost of the entire 25 man payroll! Even worse, McCourt/Ned doubled down this off-season and went on another deferred salary bender. Approximately 25% of the money that they used to sign/re-sign Uribe, Guerrier, Lilly and Kuroda is deferred into later years. Money quote from the article: 2011 Deferred salary Manny Ramirez $7.67 million Juan Pierre $3.5 million Andruw Jones $3.37 million Jason Schmidt $1.5 million Brad Ausmus $150,000 Octavio Dotel $125,000 Total: $110,813,000 Like Shakespeare said, at some point you have to give the devil his due. And it could be scary when it comes.
