Habemus Manager

So the announcement went from the McCourts to the three or four remaining Dodger fans. It was Grady Little who appeared on the balcony after the white smoke drifted off over Chavez Ravine. He seems an excellent choice to me. Especially considering who else was on offer. (Some very likely candidates apparently hid under the bed until they were assured that the McCourts had given up ringing the bell and had driven off.)

But there are two schools of thought on Mr Little. Bill Plaschke thinks it is a great choice. Bob Keisser thinks it's a disaster. I agree with Bill. Even if Bob is right and Little's great fault is not listening to the owner's instructions, considering the Dodger ownership, this is yet another check mark in the plus column.
