Dodgers Sale: Joe Torre Reportedly Interested In Joining Bid To Buy Franchise

The bidders are lining up for their chance at buying the Los Angeles Dodgers and more and more big names are potentially entering the mix. The latest: former Dodgers manager, Joe Torre.

While nothing has been confirmed, a story out of the LA Times indicated Torre has considered joining LA real estate developer Rick Caruso in pursing the team. Now a member of Major League Baseball's front office, getting into an ownership role with the franchise could be very appealing to the 71-year old.

"There've been a number of people who've reached out and inquired, but I've made no alliance, no commitment, as of this minute," Torre told the New York Times.

Torre is obviously doing his part here to keep the rumors to a minimum, but this could become a compelling story should he decide to seriously pursue owning a portion of the Dodgers organization. With all of his ties and connections to the game, he, Caruso and whoever joins their team would have to be considered among the favorites to win the bidding.
