Dodgers Notes: O’Malley, McCourt, Broxton

Here are some Dodgers tidbits, including items on their Tinseltown drama..

  • Tom Schieffer said he spoke to McCourt by phone today and expects to meet with him at Dodger Stadium tomorrow, tweets Bill Shaikin of the LA Times.
  • A prominent Dodgers executive told David Vassegh of 570 KLAC that former owner Peter O'Malley has two big time investors to buy the Dodgers.  The plan would be for O'Malley to run the organization again.
  • Dodgers owner Frank McCourt has been on a speaking binge in New York City after spending the last year saying very little to Dodgers fans in Los Angeles, opines T.J. Simers of the Los Angeles Times.
  • Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times tweets that Tom Schieffer on his way to Dodger Stadium for first time since he was appointed as the Dodgers trustee on Monday.
  • Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton believes that he can regain his All-Star form, writes Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.  The club doesn't neccessarily have to go out-of-house if they choose to go in another direction with the closer role.  The Dodgers called on Vicente Padilla to close out a 5-4 win over the Florida Marlins on Wednesday.

    The less McCourt says, the better. I’m pretty sure it’s too late to “talk”.

    O’Malley owning the team again would be awesome! Dodger Stadium hasn’t been the same since he sold the team.

    Padilla has gone from Opening Day starter to closer in a little over a year. You don’t see that very often.

      That’ll make a great baseball trivia question some day.

    If there is even a smidge of truth to the O’Malley rumor, that would be the best thing ever! Fingers Crossed!

  5. Why did O’Malley sell the team in the first place?

    “..former owner Peter O’Malley has two big time investors to buy the Dodgers. The plan would be for O’Malley to run the organization again.”

    That would answer alot of Dodger fan’s prayers

  7. McCourt will be lucky if he doesn’t land it hot water over the tax evasion allegation. Regardless Baseball will be much better off without McCourt in it.
