West Notes: Dodgers, Mariners, Padres

Clayton Kershaw will win the triple crown for NL pitchers and Matt Kemp homered and drove in three tonight in his quest for the batting triple crown. Here are some updates on MLB's West Coast teams…

  • Dodgers owner Frank McCourt could look to attack the credibility of commissioner Bud Selig by claiming that the Marlins and owner Jeffrey Loria have had preferred treatment from MLB, according Bill Shaikin of the LA Times
  • Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times shows that the Mariners' owners, many of whom are based out of Japan, are rarely heard from. Team president Chuck Armstrong is accountable for baseball moves, while financial decisions generally occur out of sight.
  • The Mariners may have money to play with this offseason, according to Baker. Depending on the timetable and direction of their rebuilding program, they could spend to varying degrees this winter, so Baker runs through some possibilities.
  • The Padres announced that they extended the contracts of Chris Gwynn, their director of player personnel, and Jaron Madison, their scouting director, through 2013.

Is McCourt in any position to attack somebody’s credibility?

That’s right McCourt, attack the credibility of the MLB Commissioner and another organization…yeah, that’ll get them on your side. This guy is clearly not the sharpest spike on the cleat.

To be fair, he did pick the correct organization to target. Marlins fans have been doubting the credibility of Loria for years.
