"We're becoming more numerically oriented," Colletti said. "We've always kept it as part of the mix, but there's so much more information now and its value is proven. It's not just theory any more. It's more of a foundation, along with scouting, as part of evaluation. For me it's 50-50.
"I'm as serious as my heart beats," Hershiser told ESPNLosAngeles.com. "The next step in the process is to be approved by baseball to bid on the team. We think with the people we have in place and the assets we have in place, we will be a serious contender."
According to the person familiar with the team's business, McCourt's sale announcement triggered a wave of calls from fans interested in buying tickets and receiving assurances the reduced prices for 2012 would be honored by a new owner.
