It is time for the SUNDAY REQUEST
The chain reaction of Bud Selig playing favorites with the fraternity of owners can still be felt. The new commissioner needs to step in and save the Miami Market.
You can’t collude on THIS episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
He comes to Los Angeles, bankrupted one of the great franchises in sports and made the Dodgers the disgrace of all American sports.
His punishment? He gets to sell it for $2 billion!
Shouldn’t he give at least $100 million of that to Los Angeles schools or something?
Ah well. May I recommend going to Angels games from now on?
When Matt Kemp signed his insanely long contract extension, it struck me as odd that Frank McCourt was still front and center.
Isn’t he about to sell the team?
Isn’t the McCourt era coming to a merciful ending?
But then I thought “HE’S A GENIUS!”
Seriously, he wants to get good will going with Dodger fans so he’s going on a spending spree.
Watch him offer Albert Pujols 20 years… and C. J. Wilson $19 million a year… and Jose Reyes part ownership of the team…
What does HE care? He’s not going to pay for it! So walks out the door, having brought every big free agent to L.A. and it’s up to Orel Hershiser or whomever takes over the team to sort it all out.
What a way to go!
Basically, Frank McCourt is leaving the Dodgers by recreating Brewster’s Millions.
