Tonight's hot rumor is that the Dodgers are firing manager Grady Little and replacing him with Joe Torre. Don Mattingly would be a bench coach.
I'm sorry, but this is almost as bad as a Giant being signed to coach the Dodgers. I've been rooting against the Yankees since 1977 (grin). And I like Grady Little, despite the Dodgers' season collapsing in 2007. Of course, Little did play for the Yankees in the minors, but still...Joe Torre and Don Mattingly?!
Well, it's going to be interesting, that's for sure.
In other Dodger news, there's a chance the team may play a Freeway Series game or two in the Coliseum as part of the team's celebration of 50 years in Los Angeles. A brief return to the team's early Los Angeles home is a nifty idea.
Tuesday Update: Dodgers manager Grady Little resigned today, and the Dodgers are said to be close to signing Torre.
With rumors that "A-Rod" might follow Torre to L.A., one sportswriter asks, "Do Dodgers Aim to Be Yankees West?"
A bunch of New York Yankees in Dodgers uniforms might work for some people, but not for this L.A. Dodgers fan.
