With reports on Friday of Stan Kasten partnering with Magic Johnson and rich guy Mark Walter in an effort to buy the Dodgers, one has to wonder if Stan had already started organizing Phillies fan party busses to LA for the Dodgers-Phillies series starting July 16? 2,700 miles is a long drive for a party bus, though. Maybe he'll fly them all in?
Stan, if you're reading this:it's a shorter drive from SF to LA. Might be simpler (and more cost effective) to organize a fleet of Giants fan party busses, block off entire sections of the stadium, and welcome them with open arms to your new home field. You have to know your market, Stan, as you well know.
Good luck in LA, Stan. Keep an eye out for your old buddy Jim Bowden while you're out there.

In the final installment of the five biggest surprises on the Washington Nationals roster, we take a look at the team's MVP: Michael Morse.
Entering the 2011 season, there was no doubt that NatsTown expected big things out of Morse, who hit .289 with 15 HR and 41 RBI in just 266 at-bats in 2010. There was no doubt that Morse would get much more playing time in 2011 than in...
Here it is: the final weekend before baseball's winter meetings begin Monday in Dallas. It's been more than a month without any baseball and it'll be just over two more before the Washington Nationals pack up and head down to Viera, Fla. to start the 2012 season anew. As for ...
In a few months, there will be lots of quotes and blog posts and columns and blind drunk fan speeches about whether the Nats can contend for the 2012 playoffs.
Might as well get an early start, though. Here’s Michael Morse, when asked on SiriusXM’s MLB Roundtrip whether the Nats, as presently constituted, can win the NL East.
