You know that icky feeling you get when you bite down on some aluminum foil? This is kind of the same thing, although for all I know he’s a really nice guy. Well, you know, he is…er, was… just a Giant. Eewwwww!
LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers raided the front office of the archrival San Francisco Giants on Tuesday by hiring Ned Colletti as general manager.
Colletti, 50, has been vice president and assistant general manager to Giants GM Brian Sabean for the past nine seasons. Granted broad authority by Sabean, Colletti’s duties have included assisting in the acquisition of players, overseeing waiver and rule compliance, formulating salary arbitration cases and managing roster payroll.
Dodgers owner Frank McCourt will introduce Colletti as the Dodgers’ GM at a press conference scheduled for 9 a.m. PT Wednesday.
Now if we just had a manager and coaching staff. Oh, and a new center fielder. And left fielder. And firstbaseman. And some new starting pitchers….
