The article focuses on some recent developments in the baseball team Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers are coming off a 71-91 season, their worst since 1992. Manager Ned Colletti signed free agents to short-term deals, buying time while trying to compete in the mediocre NL West. Colletti hired a manager and coaching staff, signed six free agents and made three trades. Colletti moved swiftly to sign free-agent shortstop Rafael Furcal, overpaying at $13 million per season but restricting the term to three years.
