Some guy in the Valley wants to buy the Dodgers *

dodgers-buyer-stree-sh.jpgSports talk hosts have been putting Josh Macciello on the air to plead his case, so Ramona Shelburne of ESPN LA went over to talk to him at his rented house in Studio City. (No, that's not him in the photo.) She also did a little digging, but mostly checked out leads he gave her — like that he changed his name from Joshua Cruz along the way. The only thing interesting about him that I can see is that he claims wealth through the control of two U.S. gold mines. End of story for me, but maybe you'll see something there. Her story.
