It pays to come home early from work...I was watching the last few moments of Pardon The Interruption on ESPN when they said MLB has taken over day-to-day operations of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Here is the press release from MLB:
"Pursuant to my authority as Commissioner, I informed Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt today that I will appoint a representative to oversee all aspects of the business and the day-to-day operations of the Club. I have taken this action because of my deep concerns regarding the finances and operations of the Dodgers and to protect the best interests of the Club, its great fans and all of Major League Baseball. My office will continue its thorough investigation into the operations and finances of the Dodgers and related entities during the period of Mr. McCourt's ownership. I will announce the name of my representative in the next several days.
"The Dodgers have been one of the most prestigious franchises in all of sports, and we owe it to their legion of loyal fans to ensure that this club is being operated properly now and will be guided appropriately in the future."
At the moment, all i can say is WOW! My beloved Dodger franchise has fallen to a new low. I haven't voiced too many opinions on McCourt but I think this is his first step out the door. Stay tuned for more.
True to the Blue!
