Both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the whatever you want to call them Angels of wherever open their season tomorrow. And LAist couldn't be more excited that after a long winter, baseball is here. The Dodgers just made their biggest move of the spring, and it came off the field. After LAist pleaded with Frank Court to hold Lon Rosen accountable for stupid decisions like firing Ross Porter, cutting down on Nancy Bea Heafley's organ time, hiring Steve Lyons, and in general denigrating the image of Dodger baseball, McCourt actually fired Rosen. The LA Times also had been embarrassing the Dodgers, reporting every flub in their impersonal and illogical relations with season ticket holders. The Dodgers responded by also firing VP of Communications Gary Miereanu.
