Stuff and such
Slow news day? Not for these folks ...
Former Dodger outfielder Mike Marshall was relieved of the general manager job with the independent North American League's Chico Outlaws, who have an uncertain future because of their stadium lease, reports Travis Souders of the Chico Enterprise-Record (via Baseball Think Factory). Marshall's wife Mary, the assistant general manager, was also pink-slipped. "With everything up in the air, it's not fair to Mike or Mary to keep them in Chico and running the team when we don't know for sure what's going to happen with the stadium, first and foremost," league commissioner Kevin Outcalt said.
Dodger assistant trainer Todd Tomczyk has left to become head trainer with the Pirates. Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com has details.
