So says T.J. Simers of the Los Angeles Times. McCourt hasn’t been around the team’s offices, Simers says, has no comments on any baseball moves and has not been handling the day-to-day operations of the club. Simers doesn’t say how different than this is from previous offseasons (though he does suggest, in his T.J. Simersish fashion that it is, in fact, different), but for a guy whose financial future depends on a court saying that he’s THE owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, you’d think he’d at least try to look busy or something.
The real question of course — and one it would be nice to have McCourt around to answer — is whether the current pleas of poverty by McCourt mean that the Dodgers are going to do anything this winter except give raises to their arbitration eligible players.
Assuming they can even do that.
