Future for the Dodgers?

For the second straight year it was raining at Dodger Stadium the day after their season ended. I pointed this out to Dodger Talk co-host Josh Suchon on Monday as we were walking from the parking lot and he gave an over-the-top reply: “It’s God crying that there’s no more baseball here in LA this year.”

While God may be crying, there are a lot of uncertainties up in the air surrounding the Dodgers, primarily who is the owner. While neither General Manager Ned Colletti nor Manager Don Mattingly can answer that question, it is something that affects the team especially how much money is available for Colletti to spend to field a competitive team next season.

“That we don’t know yet,” Colletti said about the money issue. “We haven’t gotten to that point yet. Probably soon.”

But he doesn’t think what happens in the divorce proceedings will affect what he has to spend.
