The Corner Office
"Tommy Lasorda is a baseball icon and is the perfect person to serve as Ambassador for the World Baseball Classic," said Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig. "Tommy has assembled one of the most distinguished careers of anyone in the game, and his experiences in both Major League Baseball and international play will be great assets to the tournament."I agree, and anything that keeps Tommy out of the Dodgers clubhouse is a good thing.

I side with Jon. Lasorda may have just bought his ticket to Vice President, Asian Scouting, or some other job that involves being far, far away from Los Angeles. If that is indeed the case, the point of this blog no longer applies, and I shall retire it forthwith. But we still need further evidence of his expulsion from Frank's inner circle.

Now This Is Hilarious
Though McCourt won't be attending the general manager meetings that start Tuesday in Palm Springs, Kim Ng and Roy Smith will be representing the Dodgers. They also have interns on-call in the event that Ng and Smith are fired during the meetings. Ng formally interviewed for the GM job over the weekend, although no one is saying much. Wait, let's see if Tommy has something to say. Tommy, what's your opinion of Ng's interview? "What's my opinion of Ng's interview!? What the BLEEP do you think is my opinion of it? I think it was BLEEPING BLEEP. Put that in, I don't BLEEP. Opinion of her interview!!? BLEEP, she's sitting there with two BLEEPING BLEEPS on her chest. What the BLEEP do you mean, 'What is my opinion of her interview?' How could you ask me a question like that, 'What is my opinion of her interview?' BLEEP, she has a BLEEPING BLEEP between her legs! BLEEP. I'm BLEEPING pissed off to have heard that BLEEPING interview. And you ask me my opinion of her interview! BLEEP. That's a tough question to ask me, isn't it? 'What is my opinion of her interview?'
Tommy, Thy Name Is Yard Work
I went to work right after DePodsednik went on vacation. Really, who goes on vacation when you’ve got a baseball team to manage? That’s a sign right there that he’s not all right up in his head. First, I hired a bunch of hackers to break into Paul’s e-mail account and spam everyone in the Dodger organization with e-mails from Nigerian businessmen and software salesman and pharmecutical companies and eBay account verifiers, all with Paul’s e-mail address prominently featured. (I got the idea from Billy Plaschke - he’s a great guy, and a fantastic writer. If I were head of the Writer’s Hall of Fame, he’d be first ballot every year, and twice on leap years!)Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Dodger Stadium...

Not To Be Redundant, But...
Not only do the McCourts lack a plan, it may be dawning on them that Tommy Lasorda doesn't have one, either.

No. Not Here, Either.
Following Steve's latest creation, perhaps it's time we get at, if not the root of the problem, maybe then one of the big branches.
