The Dodgers are not broke. Um, probably.

Dec 8, 2009, 11:30 AM EDT

There are all sorts of indications that the Dodgers are broke — not offering arbitration to Randy Wolf, shopping George Sherrill, unconvincingly pretending to be interested in Roy Halladay — but Ned Colletti tells Dylan Hernandez of the LAT that it isn’t so:

Asked whether the Dodgers’ payroll could decrease, Colletti said, “Not at the moment . . . A lot of it depends on how the winter unfolds with revenue and
different things along those lines. If we see good
signs, it goes up. If we don’t see good signs, it probably doesn’t go

Um, OK, so that isn’t exactly a strong proclamation of solvency. Of course, he didn’t rule out that payroll could increase. He did all but rule out the Dodgers signing anyone this week. The biggest thing on his agenda: re-signing Brad Ausmus.

Dare to dream, L.A., dare to dream.

    “Not at the moment (obviously our payroll can’t go down until we start trading people)… A lot of it depends on how the winter unfolds (I need to find out who owns this team)…”

    The Dodgers can win whether or not their payroll goes down as can any other team.
