After failing in a bid to buy back the Dodgers, the team the O'Malley name was synonymous with for nearly half a century, Peter O'Malley and his family are contemplating a bid to buy the San Diego Padres. "We are thinking about it," O'Malley told The Times on Tuesday. O'Malley declined to discuss what his role would be should his family succeed in buying the Padres. But it appears unlikely that he would be a full-time chief executive, as he would have been had the Dodgers bid been successful.

The Dodgers received "more than 10" opening bids for the team by Monday's deadline, according to a person familiar with the sale but not authorized to discuss it. As the bankers handling the sale evaluate the bids, prospective buyers can evaluate whether to join forces. In addition, because the bankers can waive the deadline at their discretion, new bidders could emerge. St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke has explored whether to bid for the Dodgers, two people familiar with the sale process said Monday.

A civic leader rallied support for Frank McCourt this week, writing an op-ed letter decrying the "piling on" against a Dodgers owner active in community affairs. "Frank has made mistakes and errors," the letter read, "but he has also delivered big-time when it comes to community benefits and seems to have much more to offer in the future. " McCourt and his estranged wife, Jamie, were in mediation Friday in an effort to settle their divorce amid a highly publicized trial. Steve Soboroff, a businessman and former mayoral candidate, said he wrote the letter and solicited others to sign it. He said his efforts were not at the request of McCourt, and that city leaders should not condemn an owner who has used the Dodgers to reach out to the community.

Peter O'Malley, the former Dodgers owner who tried to lure the NFL to Dodger Stadium a decade ago, said Monday he is no longer sure that site is the best one for a football stadium in Los Angeles. "Ten years ago, we thought it would be an ideal site," O'Malley said. "Patterns and habits [in traffic and growth] change over the years. I'm not sure what part of the city, geographically, would be a good location."
