The New Model Dodgers
Update: I can't believe I missed an opportunity to say this: as with Hollywood, the Dodgers' future is to become filled with refuse and nephews.
The closest his Mrs. (Kay) got to running the Dodgers was having the team plane named after her. She was not Vice Chairman and President.
Mr. O'Malley's son Peter worked in the front office, but he didn't become owner until his Dad passed away in 1979. He was an experienced and skilled operator at that point in time and, like his Dad, was successful on and off the field.
IIRC, he worked in the minor leagues before he became an exec with the big league club.
Jaime, Frank, and Drew should have probably served the same type of internship before they started to make baseball decisions.
