It wasn’t that long ago that Derrick Hall who was the Dodgers head of communications left the Dodgers and ultimately became the CEO of the Diamondbacks. Josh Rawitch has always spoken very highly of Derrick, and Josh is also a bright guy who could rise quite a bit above his current pay grade. I like Josh and have always respected and trusted him. He’ll do well in Phoenix. I hate for the Dodgers to lose a guy like this and as someone mentioned, others could follow if Frank McCourt continues to own the team.
Josh was a gentleman and stand-up guy that you could count on to do what he said. Maybe he couldn’t abide the turmoil anymore. I get that!
Like all fans, I wish this debacle were over, but it’s not. Josh can be replaced, but I would hate to lose some of the other front office types. That will likely occur if Frankie-Boy keeps the team. Right now, there’s no end in sight. Yesterday, I pointed out the drawbacks of a boycott, which by the way, I think will be effective in forcing McCourt out. However, he’s still here and any rational discussion involving him seems to be something nobody wants to talk about.
Itoo have boycotted the Dodgers this year, so all the vitriol pointed at me was misplaced. I just pointed out that there are other things to think about, Through all of this, I have tried to remain rational, but it is hard with all the issues and the ugly divorce. I wish Josh well and wish the debacle ends soon.
