Dodgers Ownership Links: Cohen, Claire

Frank McCourt's final offseason at the helm of the Dodgers has been a busy one. GM Ned Colletti & Co. have signed Aaron Harang, Jerry Hairston Jr., Chris Capuano, Adam Kennedy, Mike MacDougal, Mark Ellis and Juan Rivera and extended Matt Kemp long-term. Here are some links on potential buyers for the team…

  • Steven Cohen is trying to buy the Dodgers, though he's about to become a minority owner of the Mets, Bill Shaikin of the LA Times reports. The billionaire investor can pursue the Dodgers, even if his minority purchase of the Mets goes through, Shaikin writes. However, if he buys the Dodgers, he will have to sell his part of the Mets. MLB cleared Cohen as a possible minority owner.
  • Former Dodgers GM Fred Claire and his partners can still get into the bidding for the club if they obtain more capital soon, Shaikin tweets.

While I liked the guy, Capuano didn’t really deserve 2 years/$10 million.

Yeah. 5mm AAV is certainly acceptable for his performance, but given his injury history that seems a bit much. I think the Mets got lucky (!!!) that he pitched a full season.

I know he’s been hurt, but it looks like his career average is still 194 innings per season, including two well over 200-inning seasons. Assuming he doesn’t re-injure I don’t see any reason why he can’t get into that neighborhood again.

I would laugh if Cohen won the Dodgers bid and then couldn’t find  a taker for his Mets shares. Why anybody would throw money on that burning ship is beyond me.
