http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/Los-Angeles-Dodgers-fire-Steve-Garvey-for-his-attempts-to-buy-team-070811

 

 

The Los Angeles Dodgers have fired Steve Garvey for his attempts to buy the team that he helped to the 1981 World Series title, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The person, who wasn't authorized to speak publicly on personnel matters and talked to The Associated Press on Friday night on condition of anonymity, said Garvey is no longer with the team, ending a 30-year tenure in the organization. Garvey worked in marketing and community relations, making numerous public appearances on behalf of the team and its sponsors.
Yahoo! Sports first reported the firing on Friday.

The AP left a message for Garvey seeking comment.

Garvey has publicly discussed his formation of a group that has the goal of buying a professional sports franchise, possibly the Dodgers. He said last month former Dodgers pitcher Orel Hershiser had joined forces with him under the banner of the Garvey-Hershiser Group.

Garvey told the AP last month that he's been pursuing a sports franchise for two years now, and has considered minor league clubs and professional soccer teams.

The Dodgers aren't for sale, although Major League Baseball is running the team's day-to-day business operations while looking into the club's finances under owner Frank McCourt, who recently filed for bankruptcy.

Garvey told the AP last month he feels ''genuinely sorry'' about the turmoil surrounding the Dodgers.

''Who would have ever anticipated this? It's sad for all of us,'' he said. ''It will come back, I have no doubts about that.''

The 62-year-old Garvey has had his own financial problems, declaring himself broke after a series of sex scandals in the 1980s that tarnished his reputation as ''Mr. Clean,'' a nickname he earned during his playing career for his squeaky clean image.

The 10-time All-Star first baseman played for the Dodgers from 1969-82, becoming one of the most popular players in franchise history. He was in his 30th year with the organization and 15th year as a member of the front office.

What sort of sex scandals was Garvey involved in? Bestiality? threesomes? Gay sex? Table Leg insertions?

Not sure but IIRC Cynthia Garvey was a hot piece of ass in the 70's.

I remember those now.  Wasn't he being held to a high standard or morality when the first kid became known, and it was found out because he had stiffed her on a few months of support?

From The Sports Illustrated vault,

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1069161/index.htm

Well, boys and girls, stick this in your lunchboxes: Garvey currently is on one side or the other of four lawsuits, having settled two others since Oct. 6. He keeps at least five lawyers in suspenders. In the space of eight months, he had affairs with three women at once, impregnated two and married a fourth. A judge jailed his former wife for contempt of court for not letting him see his kids, and a psychiatrist testified that the kids, who say they don't want to see Garvey, are suffering from "parental alienation syndrome." He's up to his chiseled chin in debt, into the scary seven figures. Two former business associates have sued him. Other than that, it has been all apple pie and porch swings.

Regardless of Garvey's indiscretions, Frank and Jamie McCourt are stupid faggots that need to be murdered.

They've destroyed my father's Dodgers, the proud and formerly (under O'Malley) most profitable team in the whole league.

Yeah, being fired for wanting to buy the team and save it from the mess it has become under the McCourt's is low class.
Not surprised though!. This whole McCourt thing is a joke!

Doesn't MLB run the team now? Who actually fired him?

Why would MLB fire him though? Certainly they don't want to run the team ad nauseum!

Don't they have enough of their own messes to deal with.

I thought when MLB took over, they only took over the day to day operations concerning money and stuff, but employee hires/fires were still left up to the McCourts

Garvey job was in marketing. Does that fall under the category of "stuff"?

Thats right, MLB only oversees the day to day operations.
