Dodgers and GM Ned Colletti agree he’ll return with new deal

Dodgers GM Ned Colletti and the team have a new deal to keep Colletti in the role he’s held since late 2005, CBSSports.com has learned.

Colletti’s contract called for mutual options after this season, but a new deal was being discussed. The Los Angeles Times had reported eight days ago that an offer was on the table from the new Dodgers owners.

That image with that headline is just priceless....

If I were a Dodger fan, I would be really concerned that Colletti might now have unfettered access to oodles of money.

Or, maybe he's learned something from previous contracts he gave to Juan Uribe, Jason Schmidt, all the spare parts last off season, etc......

Yeah, never mind. I'd be worried.

Colletti gets a bad rap. He guided the Dodgers to the playoffs 3 out of 4 years before McCourt austerity and has had only one season of sub-500 ball under his watch (and that was 80-82.) Schmidt, Pierre, Jones, etc. are all ancient history. The Manny deal was a stroke of genius. The Boston pillage was... well, it's outside the box. He's not a truly great GM, but he's hardly rubbish (much like his mentor, Brian Sabean, who is pretty well underrated by the sabermetric community.)

The guy doesn't live and die by advanced metrics, but his results have been generally solid.

This train was picking up some steam but just went off the rails.

Given the amount of money and prospects he blew through, I don't think his record is that impressive. He joined a team with a great farm system and a huge payroll surplus playing in a terrible, terrible division. Only an utter nincompoop could have screwed that up. Considering the franchise he inherited, and even with the cost cutting at the end of the McCourt years, just one season of 90 or more wins seems like a disappointment.

The bigotry of low expectations rears it's ugly head.
