May I gently suggest to Dodgers fans and Times columnists reveling in the certainty of a World Series in 2013 that history teaches otherwise?
Throwing obscene amounts of money at athletes does not guarantee success. Plenty of teams have tried it and failed. Even the Yankees.
The real deal with such apparently insane bingeing is not about the Series but about the reported $6-billion TV contract coming. And guess who is going to pay for it? The fans, of course. If you thought cable TV was astronomically priced, just wait until you have to pay your share of this bubble.
