After a weekend of spreading talk that they did everything to keep Adrian Beltre, Doger owner Frank McCourt and GM Paul DePodesta are caught in a lie when Beltre himself speaks.

This doesn't surprise me. So much in the sport today is based on PR and making sure you come out smelling fresh as a daisy as far as the fans are concerned.For example, did you hear about Steinbrenner giving Giambi a hug? Come on! That man wouldn't hug his own son...This sport is 50% PR stunts and 50% sports.

I think the Dodgers should have found a way to keep Beltre around. I think last season was his turning point & I believe he will have continued success.

I think the Dodgers should have at least TRIED to keep Beltre. BUT, I think the Times caught BELTRE in a lie.

He says he would have taken LESS money if the Dodger brass simply came to him and told him their plans.

Plans?

How do you explain that?

"We're gonna pay you less cuz we want to give it to some other high-priced player?"

Do you really believe that Beltre would have resigned with the Dodgers for less money than he got in Seattle? No way.

The liar is Beltre.

I also think he is going to be an average player this year (and any year that isn't a contract year), so I don't personally consider it a huge loss.

I tend to agree. I loved Adrian Beltre and wanted him to succeed so badly all the years he under-performed. But I think his interpretation of what management should have done is a little naive, and I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt, there. However, since he's not playing in our league anymore, I wish him all the success in the world.

That might be where my dislike from Beltre stems from. I despise players who step it up in contract years.

This year will be key for my opinion of Beltre. The added difficulty for him is that SAFECO ain't the best place to hit in the world, so it is an uphill climb for him to impress me (not that he would care, but still...)

beltre was a very good player for the dodgers. finally they got some offense so they could average more than 3 runs a game...man. so then the get rid of him..one of the dumbest things ever. why cant any of the 86 dodgers visit the fountain of youth and show these guys how to hit??
