Is This Irony? No, It's Arizona

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

The team that hired and then days later fired a manager because of a past that included female harassment and driving under the influence has hired a scout whom another team hired and then days later fired because of a present that included female harrassment and ethnically slurring under the influence.

Wally Backman out, Bill Singer in. The former Dodger pitcher, who has been rehabilitating his career for 15 months since his unfortunate encounter with current Dodger assistant general manager Kim Ng, will be one of the Arizona Diamondbacks' six major league scouts, according to The Associated Press.

And to think the Mets, which fired Singer, almost interviewed Backman to be their manager.

Just noticing. It pays to come clean.
