Dodgers Stadium Renovations Less Ambitious than Anticipated

Shortly after rescuing the Dodgers from bankruptcy proceedings in May of last year, Guggenheim Baseball Management announced plans for over $100,000,000 in renovations.  Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times published an interview with the Director of Planning, Janet Marie Smith.  The interview sheds light on the upcoming changes to the stadium, and reveals that they are not nearly as grandiose or radical as some might have anticipated.  Such a lax attitude may actually be taken as a good sign, as it demonstrates a considerable amount of confidence in the current economy, and its ability to support the Dodgers.  Regardless, after nearly four years of declining revenues, something must change if the team is going to avoid a second stint in bankruptcy court.
