A little less smog in Los Angeles today

By Scott Miller | Senior Baseball Columnist
Dodgers fans woke up Wednesday morning not only to a new ownership group, but to an open letter from that ownership group.

In a full-page ad in Wednesday's Los Angeles Times, the group that swooped in to scoop up the team from Frank McCourt addressed its new constituency:

"Dear Dodger Fans,

"As the new owners of the Dodgers, we accept this responsibility with great humility and appreciation.

"This team is a community treasure. The title of ownership is merely a statement on paper. This team belongs to you. It belongs to everyone who has dared to love Dodgers Baseball with passion.

"The Dodgers have built a tradition of excellence -- legends like Robinson and Newcombe, Koufax and Drysdale, Garvey, Cey, Lopes and Russell, Valenzuela and Hershiser, Alston and Lasorda, Scully and Jarrin.

"The tradition of excellence continues with the Dodger greats of today. We are committed to building the next dynasty and strengthening Dodger price.

"We will preserve yesterday's traditions and create tomorrow's memories. Our leadership team will work tirelessly to make our great fans feel appreciated -- whether you come to Dodger Stadium or whether we come to you in the community.

"Thank you for your love of the Game. Thank you for always believing in this team. And thank you for being the best fans in baseball.

"We are ready to get to work. See you at Dodger Stadium!

"Respectfully,

"The Guggenheim Baseball Management Team
