Dodgers Sign Two, Swap Salary Figures With Clayton Kershaw

by @ 5:23 pm. Filed under 2012 Dodgers

The Dodgers signed two of their arbitration eligible players but Clayton Kershaw is the big elephant in the room.  Kershaw is asking for $10 million after his Cy Young season while the Dodgers are looking for $6.5 million.  This isn’t going to end well for the Dodgers so my guess is they settle pretty soon.  I just hope they get a deal done before Kershaw gets too annoyed.

Andre Ethier and James Loney both signed.  Etheir signed a $10.95 million deal while Ethier will make $6.375.  For a team that has an owner that’s on the financial ropes, the team seems to be throwing a lot of money around.  At least these are only one year deals though although I’d like to see them lock up Kershaw next year to a longer team deal.  I’m hoping that’s the first priority of the new owner.
