Buster Olney just reported what many Dodgers fans feared:
There is very little expectation within the
Dodgers’ org. that major $ — or even middling $ — will be made
available to add a pitcher.
I mean really, it’s not like they’re in a pennant race with teams pitching circles around them or anything (oh, wait). What do you people want, after all?
I think the divorce gets blamed too much in stories about the Dodgers. I think it’s broader than that. I think they’re just a team whose owners have decided can be very profitable for them if they scale back their on-the-field ambitions and put their energies into real estate ventures, football stadiums and soccer investment, all while controlling costs on the field and maybe raising the ticket prices some over time.
Fabulous business decision. Terrible way to treat a fan base.
