I woke up this morning only to read this press release from the Oakland A’s about Lew Wolff wanting to buy the Dodgers:
“There is no truth to this report. Mr. Wolff has no interest whatsoever in purchasing the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise. Furthermore, he has no knowledge of the source of any such rumor, and he has informed Major League Baseball and Dodgers ownership of his position.”
First off, I never knew he was rumored to buy the Dodgers. Now that I think about it — too bad. I’d prefer for him to go down there and louse up the Dodgers and run them on the cheap. If he splits maybe the A’s can get a real owner. I’m just saying.
