Report: Stan Kasten Candidate To Run Dodgers

From Jim Bowden:

Stan Kasten is the front runner to run the day to day operations of the Los Angeles Dodgers.He is no longer an owner of the Nats or any role

Bowden used to work for Kasten, so he might be expected to have some special insight here.

Kasten's got a sterling reputation within Major League Baseball, having served as president of the Atlanta Braves from 1986 through 2003, then as president of the Washington Nationals from 2006 through 2010. Generally speaking, Kasten's always delegated the baseball decisions to his general managers and focused on the business end of things. So if he does take over in Los Angeles, GM Ned Colletti figures to have a free hand in things, within financial limits.

Whether it's Kasten or someone else, Commissioner Selig will almost certainly appoint someone with an unblemished and well-known reputation. It's just too bad Sandy Alderson is already running a franchise in turmoil.
