Steve Garvey would like to buy the Dodgers

This is rich: Steve Garvey, who famously got into all kinds of financial difficulties a few years ago — and who has had multiple paternity suits filed against him — wants to rescue the Dodgers.  He says he has an investment group that will take the team off Frank McCourt’s hands and place Garvey in the owners’ box.

The best part of this is the Dodgers’ spokesman’s response:

“There are some great treasures out there that people would love to buy, the Dodgers among them. But, like the Mona Lisa and the Pacific Ocean, the Dodgers aren’t for sale.”

In other news, the spokesman’s boss put the Mona Lisa in a pawn shop and polluted the Pacific Ocean, so he should probably not get too uppity about Steve Garvey’s interest.

My guess is that the team is going to have to be sold. Maybe it won’t be to Steve Garvey, but it will be to someone because neither Frank nor Jamie McCourt have the kind of cash necessary to buy the other out. And even if Jamie did, there’s no guarantee that Major League Baseball would want her in the owners’ club after all that has happened.

    Any truth to the rumor that Len Dykstra is one of the financial backers?

      I’m pretty sure Tom Hicks is on the deal too.

    I can just see the team with Garvey in control. One day you’ll wake up and there will be five infielders, then six, then seven – and their mothers will all want to be paid.

    Too bad the Padres aren’t for sale.
