Hershiser, Garvey possible Dodgers suitors

If the Dodgers turn up for sale -- and it's likely they will be permanently removed from Frank McCourt's ownership at some point -- two familiar faces will reportedly be in on the bidding. Former Dodgers first baseman Steve Garvey has put together a group that is ready to make a serious charge toward owning the ballclub and he has now added Orel Hershiser to the fray. With the addition, the group is now being called the Garvey-Hershiser group.

The LA Daily Newsreports:
"Garvey approached me," Hershiser confirmed in a phone interview.

"We've always talked and communicated through the years. He was a little more of a role model for me, the way he did things. I was like, 'That's what I want to do.' He's been a good businessman.

"When he called and said he wanted me to be part of this group, I said, 'Garv, I'd always be interested in helping and doing something like this that would be a lot of fun.' We're forming a group that's investigating situations as they arise. That would be very interesting for me."
Garvey, 62, played 14 years for the Dodgers, winning one MVP and making eight All-Star games. He was a member of the World Series champion 1981 Dodgers and played in three World Series as a member of the team.

Hershiser, 52, pitched for the Dodgers for 13 seasons. He made three All Star games and won a Cy Young. He was the ace of the 1988 World Series championship Dodgers team, winning the World Series MVP after two complete-game victories. He presently serves as a commentator for ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball, but would step down if he was part of the group that purchased the Dodgers.

Touche Redline, defending this douche has made you the king of douches. 

I posted upon a "continuous rumor" of marital abuse.  Garvey is obviously a fine human being and I apologize for saying otherwise.   Sealed

Steve Garvey never beat his wife, get your facts straight. He was unfaithful, but never hit her once, she so much as said so on tv years ago. It's fools like you who perpetuate and/or start rumors that give people bad names; hell, your list of warnings give us a firm picture as to who you are. Careful throwing those rocks in your glass house loser.

I had a personal conversation with Don Mattingly the year of the strike.  We were at the Darmstadt Inn, near Evansville, IN.  I told him that I always enjoyed the series'  between the Yankees and the Dodgers when I was a kid.  He replied "who gives a f*** about the Dodgers.  I have never forgotten that and have disliked him ever since.  I am so sorry he is from my hometown.

This story got me thinking how sad it is to look in our dugout and find Don Mattingly, while Scocsia and Gibson are coaching other teams. I'm really happy to see Lopes back in blue. Here's to Garvey and Bulldog!! Maybe they'll sack the manager and bring in one of our guys.

Go Blue

My vote would be Gilbert/Cuban as Majority owners and Bulldog and Garvey Small inority owners, that way it keeps the payroll in the green and maybe even a FREE AGENT SIGNING that could help in the playoffs.

 I guess this is wishfull thinking for Dodger fans, but I have a feeling this one is going to be gummed up in legal issues for some time.  I'm sure the MCClucks will do there best to fight this one out to the bitter end.  It's good to see ex-Dodgers taking interest.  I think it is a once proud orginization that would serve MLB well to be strong again.  It may not work out for Garvey and Orel, maybe it will, but at the very least it shows that there are people ready to fight and save this team!  Good luck guys!

Garvey is an irrelevant douche bag who beat his wife. Everything this guy touches turns to poop. He makes Isiah Thomas look like King Midas. 

Have you seen the Sklar brothers "Steve Garvey" episode?   It sums Garvey up to a tee.  Tongue out

I doubt Orel has the financial backing to pull this off, but either way he needs to disassociate from this 62 year old pervert/wife beater.

Dodgers havn't had a shot of winning anything in years.
Only a fool would say that a team who makes the NLCS 2 years in a row, prior to last season, hasn't had a shot at winning.
