O'Brien's hands were tied by Lindner and Allen's decision to cut the payroll.
Depodesta was under the gun to cut $20MM out of the Dodgers payroll.
* He let Brian Jordan and Andy Ashby walk, leading to a $18MM savings.
* He managed to unload Kevin Brown's hideous $15.7MM contract.
* He also unloaded Paul LoDuca and Guillermo Mota midseason.
If Kevin Brown's contract can be moved, then anyone's contract can be moved. However, it requires is having a plan TAKING ACTION to move that plan forward.
