Smell You Later, Frank McCourt

Bill Shaikin, God Of All That is Journalism, reports that it’s apocalypse now for Frank McCourt – that Bud Selig will announce today that MLB will be taking over the financial operations of the club. It’s not quite MLB owning the Montreal Expos, but the Dodgers are now one step closer to being a ward of the state. The Dodgers. Unreal. Tommy Lasorda’s probably rolling over in his grave.

So what does this mean? It’s too soon to say, but my initial feeling is it’s bad news short term, but great news long term. If anything, it’s a step towards getting the criminal’s name off the letterhead. And an excuse for me to re-use the “McCourt gets a message” photoshop I did a few months ago.

Much, much, more to come. Have at it in the comments.
