The Final One Hundred Days of Frank McCourt

Across the country, most baseball fans are counting down the days until Opening Day (73 for the Dodgers, until April 5 in San Diego) or until pitchers & catchers report (30 for the Dodgers, until February 21). But as Dodger fans, we’re forced to approach things from a different perspective, and that means that as of tomorrow, our primary number is 100 days – the time left before April 30, the deadline for Frank McCourt to complete the sale of the team. It’s very possible that the sale is completed somewhat earlier than that, so we could even be under 100 days at this point, but then again, who among us really trusts this guy to do anything but drag the process out as long as he possibly can?

It’s currently been 2,914 days since McCourt officially took over on January 29, 2004, just shy of precisely eight years. By the time he’s gone, he’ll have been in charge for something very close to 3,000 days. I can’t pretend they’ve all been bad – plenty of good times in 2008 and ’09, you know – but let’s also not act like everything was totally peachy right up until the day we learned of his separation from Jamie.

2,914 days down, 100 or fewer to go. I say this every year at this time, as winter freezes over, the sports calendar empties out, and baseball news generally slows until camp starts, but never has it meant as much as it does now: the next three months simply cannot go quickly enough.
