All Dodger players that have been asked in public about ownership issues have the same, collective answer. Very simply, they claim they aren't paying attention to it and just want to play ball. Subsequently, since Bud has taken over the Dodgers day-to-day operations, the Dodgers have been playing very good ball.
So the question is why have the Dodgers started playing at such a high level. To this point, I have not heard anyone mention this possibility... the boys in blue are playing better for their NEXT owner. Hear me out here. They know how poorly McCourt has run the team for most of the player's entire tenure with the Dodgers. So wouldn't the team, when they finally get a glimmer of hope that McCourt is going to be gone, jump at the opportunity to show their next owner this team can win, and soon? Just an idea... maybe the players are on the issue more than we think.
