After nine years Ned Colletti is no longer the general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. However, he will stay as a special advisor to CEO and team president Steve Kasten.
Kasten asserts the reassignment is not a demotion and Colletti beleives he can still have a positive impact on the team. As GM, Colletti helped the Dodgers reach five postseasons and back-to-back National League West division championships.
Colletti completed the blockbuster deal that put Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez in Dodger blue. Not to mention, Colletti was also the GM during the Frank McCourt era, which included a divorce and financial issues.
