Time to Sell the Dodgers
Posted by Rich Stowe on June 1, 2011
How much longer will Major League Baseball and Bud Selig allow the McCourts to own the Dodgers?
In order to make this week’s payroll, they had to get advances from their sponsors and the rumor is they don’t have the payroll for June 15th either.
This once great-and-proud franchise has been run into the ground.
It’s time for Bud Selig and Major League Baseball to force the McCourts to sell the team. Whether it’s a partial sale like the Wilpons did with the New York Mets or a full-blown sale, the time is now.
The earlier Major League Baseball forces the sale, the better off the franchise will be in the future. Whether it’s simply by being able to make the next payroll without getting advances or applying for loans or by getting new owners in place before the free agency period starts, the team would be the better for it.
