It’s a big week for phony-baloney would-be-heads-of-ownership-groups.
We’ve had reports of a couple of billionaire businessmen with interest in buying the Dodgers. Because they’re billionaire businessmen, they’ll likely have people handling negotiations for them and will eschew media so as to keep their plans and intentions strategically oblique.
The 62-year old Garvey says he’s leading a West Coast-based investment group that’s interested in buying his old club. If the Dodgers don’t come up for sale as a result of the divorce between current owner Frank McCourtand wife Jamie McCourt, the group will seek to buy another pro sports franchise.
No matter what club the group does buy, the nattily dressed Garvey, sporting a silk scarf over an expensive suit and tie, said he’ll try to apply the “Dodger Way.”
Personally, I’m going to put my money on the billionaire businessmen rather than the motivational speaker/informercial king/VIP greeter/paternity suit magnet in the silk scarf and expensive suit and tie.
