Dear Mr. McCourt,
If -- after taking the names off the uniforms and tearing apart a division-winning, chemistry-laden team and replacing it with a losing, injury-prone one -- you actually go out and get Barry Bonds, do all of us Dodger fans a favor. Fire Vin Scully. It would complete the total destruction of the team.
You might as well go all the way.
Paul DePodesta sits down, toys with his computer on his lap, “forecasting” the Dodger roster through 2009, cautioning us not to expect big moves because he still thinks this laughable team has what it takes.
And I thought Halloween was still five weeks away.
I’m glad Paul DePodesta is relying on a healthier J.D. Drew next year, because, as we all know, as you get older, bones strengthen, tendons and ligaments are more resilient and muscles are more flexible.
Call me a dreamer, but is it too late for the Oakland A’s to Repodesta?
