Dodgers got better this year. That's for sure.

The Red Sox will pay just $12MM of the over $270MM owed to Beckett, Crawford, Gonzalez, and Punto, so their savings are considerable. Adding the four new players represents a substantial financial commitment by the Dodgers:

•Gonzalez will earn $21MM per season through 2016 and obtain a raise to $21.5MM for 2017-18. The total exceeds $130MM when accounting for the remainder his 2012 salary.
•Crawford will earn $20MM in 2013, $20.25MM in 2014, $20.5MM in 2015, $20.75MM in 2016 and $21MM in 2017.
•Beckett will earn $15.75MM per season through 2014.
•Punto earns $1.5MM per season through 2013.

That's crazy that they took on so much money for these players.  I was guessing the Red Sox would have to pay at least $100 million of those contracts.

What an albatross they got in trading for Nick Punto.

Beckett is just plain stupid. Ok for a DH, not good for a starter.
