The Strange Saga of the Dodgers and a Twitter Parody Account

A Dodgers spokesperson said the team did not ask Twitter to suspend the account. But curiously, the account was suspended shortly after the Dodgers had a social media team meeting in which, according to one source, Colletti spoke about how he had been harassed on Twitter.

An email to Colletti asking for comment earlier this week was not returned. When reached by phone on Thursday, Colletti angrily inquired how I had gotten his cell phone number. I told him that as a reporter I was pretty good at acquiring numbers. He then asked curtly if I had a question. I said yes. He answered that I should go ask it to the person who gave me his number. And then he hung up.

Jorge Arangure cracks the case of the thin-skinned has-been.
