Dodgers owner Frank McCourt received a $1.2 billion offer for the Dodgers and related assets yesterday, though Major League Baseball appears skeptical. Here's the latest on the 66-70 Dodgers…
- Everybody is assuming that smoke and mirrors are involved in the $1.2 billion offer, according to ESPN.com's Buster Olney.
- The issues that plague the Dodgers and Mets mirror the cities the teams play in, Jeff Passan writes at Yahoo Sports. Everything about the Dodgers is excessive, while the Mets' situation is cold and cadaverous, Passan says.
- Bill Plaschke of the LA Times argues that Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw deserve the MVP and Cy Young Award, respectively.
- If Kershaw is a Cy Young candidate, then Cliff Lee has to be one as well, Eric Seidman argues at FanGraphs. The two-left-handers have remarkably similar numbers this season.
