Torre Resigns From MLB Job; Will Pursue Purchase Of Dodgers



Joe Torre has resigned from his job with MLB to explore opportunities with a group that will pursue ownership of the Dodgers, according to a press release.  Torre's group is headed by real estate magnate Rick Caruso, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.  Richard Sandomir and  Michael S. Schmidt of the New York Times first reported Caruso's interest in Torre in November.  Torre served as the Dodgers' manager from 2008-10 and was appointed the executive vice president of baseball operations for MLB in February last year.  Joe Garagiola Jr., Kim Ng, and Peter Woodfork will assume Torre's responsibilities as MLB searches for a replacement.


According to Bill Shaikin of the L.A. Times, the deadline to submit opening bids for the Dodgers was recently extended to January 23rd.  Owner Frank McCourt and MLB reached an agreement last year for McCourt to identify a winning bidder by April 1st and complete a sale of the Dodgers by April 30th.  The list of prospective bidders includes Steven Cohen, Magic Johnson, Mark Cuban, Dennis Gilbert, Tom Golisano, and Steve Garvey and Orel Hershiser, according to Shaikin and Bill Plaschke on December 2nd.

I guess I am too, new, but putting it in perspective, he's close to his home in Hawaii and maybe he becomes a hands off owner. We'll see!

I'm guessing that he will be a partner and possibly run the baseball side of the Dodgers. The group I'm sure wanted him for to help them get an insider benefit with MLB. Yankees sure made him a couple of bucks eh Luv?

Joe must have a pretty healthy ego. When he and his wife go out to dinner they have to set three places, one for Joe, one for Joe's wife, and one for Joe's ego. He obviously loves the limelight. I got a secret for Joe which I've known for a long time and dispense only occasionally. The secret is this. Success is overrated. You heard it here. Success..........unto itself...........is way overrated. John Belushi said it best as it pertains to beautiful women {for instance.} "Show me a beautiful woman and I'll show you a guy who's sick of sleeping with her."

Nothing would surprise me. I mean Selig let his daughter run the Brewers when he became commish.. No conflict of interest there ;)


Why would a former and recent MLB employee have conflict of interest buying a team being run by...... MLB....
