Dodgers Trustee Named, Ronald Belsario Still Has No Visa, And Other Dodgers News
- Via Jon, MLB has named J. Thomas Schieffer as its agent to run the Dodgers. Schieffer was the former president of the Rangers.
Schieffer was an investor in the ownership group headed by George W. Bush and Rusty Rose that purchased the Rangers in 1989. He was the club president from 1991-99 and the franchise's general partner from November 1994 until June 1998.Anybody but Frank.
- Vin Scully Is My Homeboy passes on a Enrique Rojas tweet that Dodgers reliever Ronald Belisario has not received a visa, and will not, either, placing his career in jeopardy.
- Ken Gurnick reports that Dioner Navarro has rejoined the Dodgers.
Update: MSTI speculates that it will be A.J. Ellis sent down to AAA Albuquerque. Also, Jay Gibbons' 15-day DL stint is almost up, but he thinks Gibbons will have his clock reset because of ongoing vision problems.
Update 2: Buh bye, Mr. Ellis; as Mike foresaw.
