    1. Having Joe Torre leave your organization because of how screwed up it is shows he is an idiot

    2. Lying to MLB about his finacial status (which has been proven in court) shows what an idiot he is..

    3. The "mess" his divorce has become is more proof....

    See what I mean???

    So you are okay with the owner of the Dodgers saying it was basically the Giants fan's fault that he was attacked and beaten and only made those comments like 4-5 days after the event occured?

    You are okay with him lying to MLB about his finacial status?

    You are okay with him playing out his divorce in public?

    these are all signs of an idiot...you don't see that?

    Yup.

    Remember when the Expos were in contention virtually the entire '03 season, which, of course, was Guerrero's final go-round in Montreal, which prevented the Expos from trading him mid-season. They eventually faded largely due to lack of depth.

    Here's the kicker: MLB refused to allow September call-ups/expanded roster for the Expos due to "payroll constraints"

    Talk about a conflict of interest.

    That stated, I don't envision the Dodgers operating with such constraints.
    There will be no shortage of potential owners for the franchise, as well.

    I agree with your last Statement but... With Fox having to loan McCourt 30 Million in April this Month to make Payroll...

    I can see the Dodgers Trading away salaries...

    I'd like to be on the Kemp/Broxton train and bring them guys to town...
