According to ESPN: "Former Braves and Nationals executive Stan Kasten is a candidate to be Selig's point man in charge of the Dodgers"

Where's an inanimate carbon rod when you need one? Or some used TP?

PS He knows how to pinch pennies :couch:

We need a write in campaign for this to be added as a smiley.

and Giants fans rejoice

They'll have an invitation to invade their ballpark and he'll make sure to remove all extra security so they can feel better about coming around to beat up Dodger fans.

If you read the stories, you would know the McMorons funneled $100 MILLION from the team, to live a life style?

They had a parking lot in Boston as collateral for a loan, but they lost the parking lot, because they couldn't pay back the loan.

They set up a charity foundation through the team, and paid the person in charge of the foundation about four times more than normal AND paid his salaries from the money raised from the charity.

Baseball wanted the McMorons, because baseball felt they wouldn't drive up player's salaries.  Well they got a mess on their hands.

But, baseball doesn't want somebody like Cuban to own a team?  Sure he's a loudmouth jerk, but nobody can say he doesn't want and try to do the best for his team.

The last thing most owners want is a billionaire owner driven to win- it raises salaries and fan expectations in other markets

No, the last thing owners want is another McMoron.

Wow, he put a "I'm joking" smiley in the post and you still didn't notice he was joking.

  • Yeah, it's a 50 caliber.
I really, really, really hope they don't Stan "The Plan" on the Dodgers.  That's worse than having Alyssa Milano as the team mattress.

They should give us Kemp and Ethier for letting Minaya trade away so many prospects for garbage.

After watching Omar work his brand of magic with the Mets, I can't blame MLB. He's really is that bad.

Oh come on, who wouldn't offer Big Game Ollie a 3 year $36m deal after he had a breakdown and told you he couldn't pitch anymore?!?!!?!

Does the MLB manage the team very conservatively?

Stan Kasten "will step on toes," says one exec who thinks he'd be an excellent choice as the Dodgers' trustee.  On Wednesday, Commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement, "I will announce the name of my representative in the next several days."

I hate the Dodgers and Mets, but I'd hate to see either contracted. I also don't wish the treatment the Expos/Nats received on either team.

Former Rangers president Tom Schieffer is expected to be appointed as MLB's Dodgers trustee today, reports Bill Shaikin of the L.A. Times.  You can read Bud Selig's statement here.  Shaikin notes that the 63-year-old Schieffer served as Rangers president from 1991-99, during which time the club was owned by George W. Bush's ownership group for the most part.

After his time with the Rangers, Schieffer served as an ambassador to Australia and Japan under the Bush administration.  More recently, Schieffer ran for governor of Texas as a member of the Democratic party.

I can't see either of them going anywhere unless we have another financial meltdown.  It has probably put ol' Bud in a tough spot considering what both of these teams struggling financially means to his "management" and "leadership".  What a putz.
