Fox advances McCourt money + Dodger blog news - Winter workout, Sax, Plaschke, $1 billion?

Something that came down today from California Sportswriter of the Year Bill Shaikin (L.A. Times) is Fox is advancing Frank McCourt money on the remainder of the current television deal.

Oy vey.

Other than that, not a whole lot is going on right now. A brief rumor mentioning the Dodgers and Johnny Damon, but that died quickly.

So, here's what's going on with other Dodger blogs.

A couple Dodger blogs were at the Dodger winter workouts for prospects this week.
  • Roberto Baly of Vin Scully is my Homeboy posted a slew of photos, videos and analysis.
  • Jared Massey of L.A. Dodger Talk recounted his time at the workout.
Dodgerbobble got to meet my first favorite Dodger, Steve Sax, at an appearance on Sunday.

Mike Petriello of Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness asked how you would assemble the Dodgers' batting order.

Sons of Steve Garvey absolutely destroyed Bill Plaschke's column on the National Championship Game. When Plaschke gets trashed, it's an automatic win.

If the Dodgers were put up for sale by McCourt, the bidding could be reach $1 billion, writes Mike Ozanian of Forbes.

  1. Oy Vey is right. I really hope Frank's days as Dodger owner are numbered. If this doesn't open Bud Selig's eyes to the truth, I don't know what else will.

    Thanks for the link, BTW.
