The Los Angeles Dodgers are very close to hiring a new general manager, the team leaning toward current assistant GM Kim Ng or assistant San Francisco Giants GM Ned Colletti to succeed Paul DePodesta, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Of course, in the latest post over on his blog at MLB, Tommy Lasorda is all over the story.

"The close of the season came yesterday, as the Chicago White Sox beat the Houston Astros in the World Series. I would like to thank the 74 million fans across the country, and around the world, who attended a ball game this summer. I hope you enjoyed the season as much as I did."

Wait, sorry. Our first graph was incorrect. What we meant to write was that the blog Dodger Thoughts is all over this story, while Tommy Lasorda remains a worthless tub of goo who has become a sad, pathetic parody of himself. Yeah, we often mix up those two thoughts.


But we kid Tommy. Actually we'd love to have him over for dinner and hear the story, that he loves to tell, about how he would pitch to Jack Clark all over again if he could.
