Dodgers Notes: Bidding Now Includes Disney Family; MacDougal Signing; Minor Moves

Buster Olney points out today in his latest (Insider required) that the increasingly high-profile bids on the sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers should mean good things for the team's fans, Bill Shaikin of the LA Times reports the Disney family is now in on the bidding, and we have the MacDougal signing from earlier this week:

  • New Bidder for the Los Angeles Dodgers - Buster Olney (Insider)
    "You wonder if the number is going to be close to $2 billion, or more, through the competition. There are not paper tigers in these groups; they are billionaires who expect to win and who are accustomed to winning. And all of this bodes well for Dodgers fans, because nobody is going to spend that kind of money to acquire this franchise and then let it rot with a modest payroll of $90 million (like the 2011 Dodgers)."
  • Disney family to bid for Dodgers, sources say - Bill Shaikin | LA Times
    "The Disney name graced the last World Series champion in Southern California. The Disney name could grace the next World Series champion in town too, if Stanley Gold succeeds in his bid to buy the Dodgers. The family of the late Roy Disney has partnered with Gold, entrusting the man who runs the family investment firm to lead the charge for the Dodgers and try to restore prominent local ownership to the team."
