MLB Franchise Notes: Dodgers Make "Significant Statement" With Signing Cuban OF

QUESTIONS REMAIN: In San Diego, Kevin Acee writes of the Padres bid group led by the O'Malley family, “What I really care about is where the O’Malley group is getting its money -- and how much of it the consortium will have to invest in the on-field merchandise after being fleeced" by Chair John Moores. The “almost-completed purchase of the Padres could leave the O’Malleys on food stamps and their group’s ownership might still be an improvement over Moores’ fraudulent indifference.” Moores remains a "commendable philanthropist and shrewd businessman, but he only used to be a good team owner.” What he has “done lately is simply scam the people of San Diego” (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 6/29).
GIVE IT TIME: In Illinois, Barry Rozner wrote under the header, “Here’s Hoping Cubs’ Ricketts Stays Course.” Cubs Chair Tom Ricketts, “so far, has allowed the new front office to work without interference.” Rozner: "Here’s hoping he doesn’t go for the quick fix. It’s no guarantee that [President of Baseball Operations] Theo Epstein will get it right. But we have seen the results of so many getting it wrong. Give the man a chance. You’ve come this far” (Illinois DAILY HERALD, 6/28)
