Can road get any lower?

November 14, 2009

Mark Cuban says he wants to buy the Dodgers but, oh yeah, they're not for sale. Jamie McCourt, the "baseball girl," has her own plan to buy the team -- good news for Little League presidents throughout the city. The mediocre left fielder announces that he will indeed come back to suck up $20 million of the payroll, thus insuring that Juan Pierre and his exciting brand of ball will stay on the bench. It's the third day of the general managers' meeting, and not a word of activity from Ned Colletti.

It's really shaping up to be a thrilling off-season . . . for the Rockies.

T.J. Simers' interview with Jamie McCourt was quite revealing on how the wealthy view themselves and comprehend reality. When she was questioned about when her alleged affair with Jeff Fuller, recently fired director of protocol for the Dodgers started, she replied "I'm not ever going to talk about my private life." That's a little too late, don't you think?

I opened the sports page this morning for my daily dose of angst only to read T.J. Simers' alter-ego. Did Simers go soft or did Jamie McCourt already buy controlling interest in the Dodgers and make him director of public relations?

The road most Dodgers fans would like to see both McCourts take is the fastest one back to Boston.

I opened the Sports section last Tuesday and saw "Cuban Interested in Dodgers." I'm actually hoping it means Fidel Castro.
