NedCollettiDealWithIt

A common excuse for Ned Colletti defenders (here, in the comments) is to blame his recent lack of success on the current financial situation of the Los Angeles Dodgers brought upon by the nightmare ownership of Frank McCourt. Generally speaking though, the lack of money hasn’t been the problem. Hell, it’s almost the opposite, as Colletti’s worst years as a ... Read More »

Josh Macciello not a finalist in ownership bidding, was basically trolling in real life

Los Angeles Dodgers Not Getting Prince Fielder & Frank McCourt Still An Asshole

PrinceFielder

While there’s nothing wrong with pipe dreams, and the speculation about the Los Angeles Dodgers and Prince Fielder was inevitable given the team’s needs and his need for a team, it was never all that realistic.
