Welcome to True Blue Auction, and a very pleasant good day to you, wherever you may be. Here's hoping you'll visit every once in a while to discuss, analyze and join in the collective observation of the upcoming auction and inevitable (let's hope) sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers to a new ownership group.
In coming weeks, we'll take a deeper look at each of the parties which emerges as a potential bidder for the greatest franchise in the history of Major League Baseball (or at least, the best one currently for sale). One persistent feature of this blog* will be a weekly poll of who you think is leading the race for the Azul. We'll trace these results over time to get an idea of how public sentiment, based on what's reported or otherwise disclosed publicly during this process, changes over time.
So relax, pull up a chair and join us, won't you? The ride is going to be long, at times bumpy, but most certainly interesting. And if the payoff is new ownership committed to restoring the lusterous history to the Dodger franchise, it's a journey we'll all benefit from in the end, don't you agree? Great. Now let's see who's ready to play ball...
* Unless a better idea comes along, that is.
