RE: Bill Shaiken's article "Dodger's GM Ned Colletti faces tough decisions".

The problem with retaining Colletti through the end of the season, and relieving him of his duties at that time, is the loss of the Winter Meetings yet again at a crucial time in the rebuilding of the franchise. In Rafael Furcal's contract year, and with other critical personnel decisions to make, you would want a new GM in place way before then. Most other teams function this way and it is not unusual for organizations to replace GM's in the middle of the season. The Dodgers are too conscious of public image to do that and will be saddled with another lost off-season if they choose to make the same disastrous mistakes and resist a purge.
