nope, he'll let Selig's men do the dirty work on July 1. This guy could go down as one of the scummiest owners of all time. I really wish they would have let him buy the Red Sox when he tried.Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt is not expected to start dumping high-priced players or making trades to unload money in order to make payroll by June 30
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said on TMZ that he would have interest in buying the Dodgers under the right circumstances. But Cuban suggests it could be a while - maybe 20 years - before the Dodgers are on the right track again. “It's just such a mess, right,” Cuban said. “I can’t imagine that it’s not going to be such a mess that it’s going to make it hard to turn around.”
WSJ Whoa. Everyone’s least favorite troubled baseball team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, just filed for bankruptcy protection, as Deal Journal colleague Matt Futterman is reporting.
CLICK HERE to read the Dodgers bankruptcy court filing.
The best part of the filing is the list of people to whom the Dodgers owe money — including retired slugger Manny Ramirez. The Dodgers say they owe Ramirez $21 million. Vin Scully, the beloved longtime baseball announcer, is owed about $153,000, according to the bankruptcy filing.
The bare bones document — we should have more in the next day or so — estimates the Dodgers assets at $500 million to $1 billion, and lists its estimated liabilities at $0 to $50,000. As Futterman is reporting, the Dodgers are filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to keep the team out of the hands of Major League Baseball.
The Dodgers have filed for bankruptcy.
Frank McCourt is doing all he can to prevent Major League Baseball from taking over the Dodgers, and the bankruptcy filing might buy him a couple of days. But the fact is he cannot meet payroll, and that alone should be reason enough for Bud Selig and MLB to step in and seize control. McCourt will eventually be pushed out. It's an ugly mess with the trade deadline fast approaching.
they've been married for 30 plus years. Actually, they have been together for their entire adult life ..SpecialFNK wrote:I wouldn't be surprised if his wife/ex wife will make out pretty damn good, these bitches always do. it's a shame really that when couples get divorced the woman gets half the man's stuff.
