Here are some of my favorite quotes from today's press conference introducing the Dodgers new ownership group.

"Frank's not here anymore. We should be clapping for just that." - Magic Johnson

"Every aspect of this operation in this ravine is managed and controlled by us.  All of the revenues go to this organization. To be clear and not to be hiding anything, the former ownership does have an economic interest in the profits that might come from a potential development in the future. Other than that this is ours. This is our land and we manage it." - Mark Walter

The new owners officially lowered parking from $15 to $10.

"We're not here to gouge the fans just because we paid a nice sum for this franchise.  We're going to pour money into the team and the fan experience. We're here to win. We don't want the fans just because we wrote a big check we're going to stop now. We're going to write some other checks as Stan and Ned see where we need to improve. We're out to win and we want to win for the fans. I don't want that question like now we're short on money or something. That's not the case. I want everybody to understand I came here to win. It's a new day in Dodgertown here." - Magic Johnson

"Mr. O'Malley, thank you. Because we don't have to reinvent the wheel, we just have to get it back to where it was before." - Magic Johnson

"I used to have the sweetest voice in basketball, Chick Hearn, calling my games. Now I have the sweetest voice in baseball, Vin Scully." - Magic Johnson

True to the Blue!
