They want Los Angeles, they want all of the major leagues, they want the whole Earth!
Not that it’s a bad thing.
Say this for the Dodgers’ new owners, they have not been bashful. Certainly not with their money, whether dropping a quarter of a billion in a late-season blockbuster trade, making international signings or adding front office personnel.
On Monday they moved to bolster their international scouting department, adding six veteran scouts. They will report to the new vice president of international scouting, Bob Engle, who was hired Nov. 1.
The new scouts will have specific regions to cover: Pedro Avila (Venezuela), Gene Grimaldi (Europe), Patrick Guerrero (Latin America), Pat Kelly (Pacific Rim), Jamey Storvick (assignment scout Pacific Rim) and Mike Tosar (Cuba and Mexico).
