All the prospects. All the players. All the executives.
The Dodgers will sign them all:
The Dodgers have hired Greg Maddux and Raul Ibanez as special assistants to the president of baseball operations & baseball ops department.

If you recall, the Dodgers already sport a front office with approximately 10 GM-level executives, plus an enormous cache of bright minds in other roles – to which they’ve just now added Maddux and Ibanez.
Of note, Maddux had recently left the Rangers’ organization after his brother did the same (in favor of becoming the pitching coach with the Nationals earlier this offseason). Some had hoped he’d find his way back to the Cubs’ organization, but it appears that Maddux looked around and ultimately settled on the Dodgers, who are undoubtedly devoting an enormous budget to their front office.
The Cubs traded Maddux to the Dodgers back in 2006 in a deadline deal that netted them Cesar Izturis.
