Rob @ 6-4-2 with a find that’s guaranteed to make you lose your lunch:
Jamie Enterprises. “A heart for sports. A mind for business. A voice for the community.” Gah.
I’m not even going to put a screenshot because her giant stupid face makes me ill, but just read this part of the bio and tell me that it doesn’t make your skin crawl.
A conscience-driven business leader with graduate degrees in business and law, Jamie has used her business expertise and passion for relationships to drive the Dodgers team and fan experience to new levels of excellence. She believes in the power of the game she’s loved since childhood to unify families, connect generations, and bring people together from all walks of life. Under her leadership, the Dodgers drew their four highest attendance totals, reached the postseason four times, and played in the National League Championship Series in both 2008 and 2009.
GO AWAY, PLEASE. FOREVER.
Update: I guess I don’t have to worry about Josh Towers anymore, do I?
Triple-A Albuquerque pitcher Josh Towers was granted his release by the Dodgers and replaced in the rotation by Seth Etherton, a first-round pick of the Angels in 1998 out of USC. (via dodgers.com)
Bullet dodged, I suppose. That said, the article references that Towers had an opt-out clause, but doesn’t specifically say that’s why he was cut loose. He couldn’t possibly think that he was going to find a major league job elsewhere right now, right?
Also: yes, I saw that Roy Oswalt has asked to be traded from Houston. Yes, he’d be a great fit in LA, and no, the Dodgers can’t afford him thanks in large part to “Jamie Enterprises”, so I’m not going to dig into it now.
