LA Times: Mark Walter says he won’t make call on Don Mattingly

The night the unstinkable stank!

“These guys are in charge,” Walter said before the Dodgers’ 3-0 victory over the Angels. “Nobody wants me running this team. If they do, that’s a huge mistake. I’m not qualified to run a baseball team. I hope people know that.”

Walter is chief executive of Guggenheim Partners and one of the partners in Guggenheim Baseball Management, the company that owns the Dodgers.

Is there a point at which Walter will become involved in making baseball decisions?

“I guess if I have to fire Stan,” Walter said.

Walter laughed and added, “You know I was joking! You must say I was joking!”

Is he close to firing Kasten?

Walter laughed, as did Kasten, who was standing nearby.

Walter was reminded that the Dodgers are in last place, and was told that Kasten was the architect of baseball’s version of the Titanic.

“We are not the Titanic,” Walter protested.

Yeah, the Titanic at least started out well before things went south. This was more like Hangover 3*. A bad idea, poorly executed.

*Note: I have not and will not ever see Hangover 3.

Eh, Hangover 3 was better than 2. Just because they tried making a different movie.
