Please godfather,

 

 

Several weeks ago I commented that the Dodgers were headed toward a 78-84 season unless some major league pitching was acquired. Unfortunately, I still believe that prediction and am further convinced that management can not or will not make any major acquisition because of financial reasons.

 

To be a fan and in this situation is almost intolerable. Loyal, dedicated fans have laid out hard earned dollars and it appears that the teams owners have enriched themselves with no concern for anything else. The other columns mentioned on this site deal with the ownership/divorce issue better than I can. My one hope is that the Godfather, Bud Selig will call both these idiots and tell them he is sick of their public displays and is concerned about full public disclosure of the teams financial records. Maybe he will even mention the “good of the game” argument.

 

It is bad enough that the customers of the Dodgers are being gouged but when it becomes public knowledge that the state and federal taxpayers have also been screwed by “the legal shell game” and other accounting trickery, and no income taxes have been paid by the owners for many years, then the outcry might reach Washington and might eventually have anti trust implications.

 

Godfather, please call this couple and advise them to settle their personal problems quickly and quietly. No one wants another Texas Ranger financial mess to deal with and the fans of LA deserve much better. The mess in Texas, and soon in LA, could have profound implications long term.
