So the Dallas Winter Meetings are over, and while Colletti failed to make a big splash, he also didn't do a whole lot of damage either. We did find out from Dylan Hernandez that the Dodgers will not be bidding on Yu Darvish. I have my shocked face on right now.

The Dodgers finalized their deal with Aaron Harang today. I love the one year at $3MM for 2012, however 2013 we are paying this guy $7MM, Colletti is seriously killing me right now! Ready for this? How would you feel about paying Harang, Chris Capuano, Ted Lilly, Matt Guerrier, Matt Treanor, Mark Ellis, Juan Uribe, and Jerry Hairston Jr. $47.75 million in 2013. Absolutely incredible right?That's more than the entire Tampa Bay Rays 2011 payroll. Ridiculous. I would love to hear how Colletti feels about this, "uhhh, what do I care I'm gonna get fired anyway, right?"

The best news of the day is that we got rid of a waste of space today for some talented minor leaguers. Yep, Dana Eveland was handed a one way ticket to Baltimore in exchange for Tyler Henson and Jarrett Martin. Pretty flippin' sweet if you ask me.

Finally, No Rule 5 Draft transactions for the Dodgers, there's a sigh of relief, it's not like we got young talent to spare these days. That's it!

Oh wait, one last thing. Here's a quick update on what the judge ruled today about the Dodgers TV rights should you care to take a peek.
