I am stoked about the Dodgers! Which is weird, seeing as me + Dodgers = extremely bad match.
But this news that Torre may be making an attempt at buying the Dodgers? That is more than enough to be stoked about. Fantastic news, my friends.
I mean, it means we won’t get to see him every five seconds doing interviews during postseason rain delays as a rep for MLB (which was completely fun) but it does mean that we may have a very villainous, loathe-worthy Dodger owner in the foreseeable future!
Loathing McCourt doesn’t feel right, because even hardcore Dodger fans mostly loathe him. Not an arguing piece.
Absolutely dripping with Dodger blue terribleness.
In addition to which, it would make the rivalry more fun again and all that because we’d actually (hopefully) have a driven organization to compete against. Assuming we are actually competing. Which, with Baer the Evil Usurper in charge, is vaguely doubtful.
Speaking of which… has the offseason gotten eerily quiet lately or has the offseason gotten eerily quiet lately? Sabean has either pricked his finger on a spindle and fallen asleep for 100 years (that is, until Spring Training) or Baer has a knife to his back and is all, “Do not make any moves, my young Padawan!”
Yes, I think Baer totally speaks Star Wars talk.
And no, I do not know if Sabes is actually younger than Baer, so the “young Padawan” thing is probably a little weird.
Yes, I could just Google it and be Creepy Stalker Diamond Girl and find both their birthdates, but you wouldn’t want to make me do that and keep me from the delicious coffee ice cream I am about to eat, now would you?
I thought not.
