LAT: Bankruptcy doesn’t mean Dodgers can’t offer big contracts

The Dodgers’ status as a bankrupt company should not prevent owner Frank McCourt from offering big contracts this winter, according to parties involved in the federal bankruptcy proceedings.

“Whatever happens with the club, it’s in everyone’s interest for the team to be competitive and not compromised in trying to operate,” said Michael Weiner, executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Assn., which, as co-chair of the bankruptcy creditors’ committee, represents the interests of every party to whom the Dodgers owe money.

“They’ll be permitted to make whatever decisions they have to make.”

Sure, the Dodgers can offer big contracts - but I hold no hope they will.
