Why should Ronnie Belliard lose weight?

Wed, Jan 27

The Los Angeles Dodgers reportedly signed Ronnie Belliard to a one-year deal for $825,000 on Tuesday.

On the surface, it's a typical transaction -- until you inspect the fine print.

The pact becomes guaranteed only if the less-than-svelte infielder drops to 209 pounds or less during spring training.

Jillian Michaels jokes aside, the contract raises the question: Do the Dodgers have any idea what they're doing?

A quick look at other heavy hitters indicates otherwise.
