And then there were 3: My thoughts on Dodgers Bidding
It’s been a long process for the Dodgers and now its down three Bidders. Magic/Kasten, St Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke, and Steven Cohen/ Soon Shiong are the three that will be voted by MLB before negotiating with Frank McCourt. Looking at the potential owners I have different thoughts about different ones which is something I won’t get into at this moment. I don’t know what each owner has on their agenda as far as bringing the Dodgers back from the mess that was brought during the McCourt issues but hopefully it’s the right one. Now as I mentioned Next Week MLB will vote on the 3 bidders which means by April 1st the Dodgers auction will be done and who ever MLB votes will talk with McCourt on finalizing a sale by April 30th. It’s been a rough process after going through a lot of bidders and multiple things but in the end the Dodgers will have a new owner and we’ll be rid of McCourt.
Whoever the new Dodgers owner is I hope the first thing that comes is getting the Dodgers out of the Bankruptcy mess and other mess McCourt has left. In order to get back the left over damage that McCourt left must be fixed. Another is the fan experience. Dodger fans are the most Loyal in baseball as I always say and the new Owner must notice that and not make it about the Money Makers. The tradition of the Dodgers must stay too. No changes!!!! Upgrades to make the Stadium wouldn’t but No Name changes or moving the Stadium.
As far as who I want as the owner I would love to see Magic Johnson and Stan Kasten as the owners of the Dodgers. Magic knows how deep the Los Angeles/Dodgers connection is being in Los Angeles when the Dodgers won the World Series. Stan Kasten, who looks like he will be on the baseball side of things, knows what to do as far as putting a winning product on the field. Kasten is a Veteran Baseball executive. He and Magic look like a good team that will make everyone in Dodgertown extremely happy. It rest in the hands of MLB as of now but I have faith that they will do whats best for the Los Angeles Dodgers and it’s Fans.
