McCourt's done. The team will be sold. Could happen quickly at firesale. Could happen down the road through bankruptcy. Or maybe MLB takes over ownership like the Expos or NBA/Hornets.

Does Mark Cuban have any interest in buying the Dodgers? He belongs in a place like LA.

He's long been one of the half-dozen names on the short list.

Makes Royals ownership look smart. 2nd or 3rd biggest market, huge crowds, TV and radio contracts... and you cant pay your employees?

Between them and the Mets, there could be a nice change coming to the MLB that will help us small timers.

I think we should all take out loans and go buy the team. The bank isn't going to turn us down once we tell em we're buying the Dodgers right?

If baseball were ever serious about contraction, this would be the time to do it. I could see a team being contracted and then the team owner being given the Dodgers.

Maybe the team should move back to Brooklyn.

Cuban would be a match made in heaven.
Therefore given baseball's historic stupidity, nevahappen.
Bob Ryan went off on the Sports Reporters about what an idiot McCourt was. Pretty funny.

McCourt said, “It’s just un-American to me, to be sitting here having this conversation, the thought that your private property, it’s susceptible to being taken away from you because you’re going through a nasty divorce or whatever.”

And regarding Tom Schieffer, the Commissioner’s designated “trustee” of the Dodgers, McCourt said, “We don’t believe that Commissioner Selig has the right to send in a receiver to come in and take over the Dodgers.”

It sounds like there might be some uncomfortable moments in Chavez Ravine over the next few days.

I'm struck, but not surprised, by how ugly this is. On all sides.
