LOS ANGELES (AP) – Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti says he doesn’t know how much money he can spend to improve the debt-riddled team in 2011, but he doesn’t expect major upheaval of the roster.
Colletti met Monday with incoming manager Don Mattingly and the baseball operations staff to discuss the recently concluded season and look ahead to next year.
Colletti says the Dodgers will have a budget that will allow them to compete, as he said they did this season, but owner Frank McCourt has yet to let him know how much it is.
McCourt was booed by fans on Sunday when outgoing manager Joe Torre publicly thanked him.
The divorce trial of Frank and Jamie McCourt began in August and overshadowed the final months of the season.
