It's pretty early to analyze seriously what a Joe Torre ownership group would mean for the Dodgers -- there are other, high-powered groups vying for the team, after all -- but it's not too early to start speculating, which is exactly what Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness does:
Obviously this is far, far away, but it’s interesting to try to imagine what Torre might do if he returned to the team with some sort of executive power, similar to Nolan Ryan in Texas. You’d have to think he’d fight hard to retain Don Mattingly, as Shaikin also suggests, but what do we really know about his relationship with Ned Colletti?
And as Bill Shaikin notes:
If you're Don Mattingly, you're rooting hard for Joe Torre's group to buy the #Dodgers. Best chance to keep your job.
I can personally guarantee that if the Dodgers were to forge ahead with Colletti and Mattingly, it would be an exciting development. For Giants fans. But, again, it's still too early to get too deep with this.
