LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers insist that their business model is thriving and they are under no orders from Major League Baseball to curtail debt, despite a report that indicated otherwise this past weekend.A report in the Los Angeles Times on Saturday revealed through an unnamed source that the Dodgers are hundreds of millions of dollars in debt after the first four seasons under Guggenheim Baseball Management. That same report said the Dodgers face a mandate to meet MLBs debt rules.The Dodgers did not dispute that they have operating debt. It was the suggestion that MLB has ordered them to do something about it that seemed to rankle team officials.There is no mandate, Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten said Monday afternoon. There is no problem with our debt, and we continue to work on the same program we have been working on from the day we walked in here in 2012, which is to say were working hard to build the best team we can for this year while being mindful of continuing to build the best pipeline of minor leaguers to the major leagues that we can.Commissioner Rob Manfred also moved to deny that the Dodgers are under any order to curtail spending. Even if the Dodgers were in violation of the debt service rule, it is just one of a number of areas that would have to be in noncompliance before the commissioners office would take action.The commissioners office works with all clubs to monitor compliance with the debt service rule, Manfred said. Noncompliant clubs are asked to submit a plan demonstrating a path to compliance. Clubs are evaluated on an ongoing basis relative to that plan. The rule is intended to ensure the financial health of clubs relative to their ability to service their indebtedness -- not to influence decisions on the player market. There are various ways to achieve compliance, and there is no mandate to cut payroll.A major league source indicated that there is now a developing perception among both teams and potential free agents around the game that the Dodgers could be under some financial stress. Kasten reiterated that nothing could be further from the truth.The Dodgers have spent lavishly since Gugenheim Baseball Management purchased the team from Frank McCourt in May 2012. The ownership group followed the $2 billion purchase by doubling the payroll in its first full season, from $105 million in 2012 to $216 million in 2013. Payroll then went from $229 million in 2014 to $271 million in 2015 before settling back at $249 million the past season.The L.A. Times report said payroll could drop further in 2017. Without outlining the clubs roster plans for next season, Kasten confirmed that the ownership groups business plan has gone unchanged since it went into place in 2012.From his days with the Atlanta Braves?to his time with the Washington Nationals, Kasten has shown a propensity to develop rosters from within the organization, winning with a mix of young players who provide cost certainty and veterans who provide experience and leadership.The Dodgers are not married to the same plan, but it appears to be developing anyway, with the emergence of young players such as?Joc Pederson, Corey Seager, Julio Urias and Jose De Leon. Expected arrivals down the road are infielders Cody Bellinger and Willie Calhoun and outfielder Alex Verdugo.The emergence of those players alone would provide the cost certainty that would reduce payroll naturally, along with the fact that high-dollar salaries for players such as?Andre Ethier, Adrian Gonzalez, Scott Kazmir and Brandon McCarthy?will be off the books by the end of the 2018 season. Clayton Kershaw could opt out of his contract after the 2018 season, but the Dodgers figure to be in position by then to be among the highest bidders for his services.Although no team has operated in the financial stratosphere the Dodgers have maneuvered in the past four seasons, there are no indications that MLB is worried about the clubs debt service ratio. The Dodgers have led baseball in payroll each of the past four seasons.There is no problem with our debt, and we are continuing to operate on the same program that we have when we walked in here in 2012, Kasten said.Kasten also moved to eliminate the notion that the club is somehow struggling financially. The club raised season-ticket prices for 2017, but early returns show that many season-ticket holders are willing to pay the additional costs for a team that has won four consecutive National League West titles. This is the first time in team history that the Dodgers reached the postseason in four consecutive seasons.Business for the Dodgers is very strong and very healthy, and it is why we lead baseball in attendance and in season tickets because we have a tremendous fan base that has great confidence in the product we put out there year after year, Kasten said. And it is clear from the early renewals we are getting that they have the same or greater level of confidence next year.I think, in fairness, they have appreciated the kind of team we have put together the last four years and the kind of future we have. And those things arent going to change. Peyton Manning Jersey .

Replacing Minnesota in the Holiday Bowl on short notice would be a logistical nightmare, from rounding up players who have already gone home for the holidays to figuring out how to feed them once they are in California.Minnesota players are boycotting team activities in protest over the universitys decision to suspend 10 players for its upcoming Holiday Bowl appearance against Washington State after an internal school investigation into an alleged sexual assault. No criminal charges were filed in the case.University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler released a statement Friday saying that the players would remain suspended and it planned to let bowl organizers know soon if the team would be participating.If not, the Holiday Bowl committee will have to act quickly to find a replacement. The game is set to be played Dec. 27 and the teams were scheduled to arrive in San Diego on Dec. 22 for a few days of preparation and bowl-related activities.The Holiday Bowl put out a statement Thursday night saying it was monitoring the situation. Wright Waters, executive director of the Football Bowl Association, said Friday bowl organizers had not reached out to any schools about filling in for Minnesota if the Gophers dont show.Northern Illinois, from the Mid-American Conference, appears likely to get the first call. The Huskies are at the top of the list of 5-7 teams that would be bowl eligible based on their Academic Progress Rating, according to NCAA rules.NIU officials are also monitoring the situation.Were proud of the academic success of our football program which puts us in this conversation, athletic director Sean Frazier said in a statement Friday.But NIU finished its season on Nov. 26 and held its last team meeting the next day. The school had fall commencement last Sunday.After NIU, next up in the APR rankings are Arizona State and California, two Pac-12 teamms that have already played and lost to Washington State.dddddddddddd.Even if a team commits to play, there would be a host of issues to resolve.The first and maybe biggest problem would be gathering coaches and dozens of players who have dispersed for the holiday season.Next, how to get that team to California? Charter flights can be booked on short-notice, but they are costly.Even if a team could get to San Diego, it would be way behind on the field and off.Typically, schools send a group of team officials -- including the director of football operations, equipment manager and ticket and marketing directors -- to scout a bowl site a day or two after a bid is accepted.They map out everything from the time it takes to get the team from the hotel to practice sites to where to hold events for their fans.A positive for Northern Illinois is that the school has recent experience with San Diego bowl games. The Huskies played in the Poinsettia Bowl last season and in 2013. That game is also held at Qualcomm Stadium.Hotel arrangements would not necessarily be an issue because bowl organizers book those in advance and a new team could simply slip into Minnesotas accommodations. Though teams usually plan most of their own meals, so that would be another rush job.Then there is practice.Bowl teams generally practice for a couple of weeks on campus before heading out to the site. Most of the game-planning and serious preparation is done then. Coaches are generally putting the finishing touches on their team at a bowl site.At Washington State, the Cougars are trying to go about business as usual.We are focusing on ourselves and preparing for the 2016 National Funding Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27, Washington State AD Bill Moos said in a statement.
