Grady Little Resigns As Dodgers Manager

By Wyatt Earp | October 31, 2007

Big news out of Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Grady Little resigned as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday, paving the way for Joe Torre to take the job.

Little said it was a move he considered for some time, and he told general manager Ned Colletti of his decision Tuesday. First, Little called it “a mutual resignation.” Later, he said it was his choice to leave with a year remaining on his contract.

“I’ve got my own personal reasons,” Little said on a conference call.

When asked if reports that the Dodgers were speaking with Torre influenced his decision, Little replied firmly: “No.” (H/T – )

This story makes me sick to my stomach. I mean, sure, Grady Wilson may not have been the best choice for manager, but he tried his best to motivate his players. Of course, juggling a big league managing job while spending quality time with his friend Fred Sanford may have attributed to the team’s collapse, but that’s neither here nor there.

Personally, I think the constant taunts of “You big dummy” from Aunt Esther made Grady’s tenure a miserable one. Now that he has resigned, perhaps he can concentrate on the junkyard business he so enjoyed.

What’s that? Grady Little resigned as the Dodgers coach?

Oh. Never mind.
