Like it or not, Frank McCourt is playing it by the book and playing to win. He is not speaking and is keeping a low profile, which is absolutely the best way to prepare for a trial or hearing. Let the other side play their cards. Jamie is saying that she wants to put together a group of investors, she was asking for $450,000.00 a month in temporary support and then has her driver (in more than one sense) act like a representative of the Dodgers overseas. Jamie may be a lawyer (not a very good one by most accounts), but she has no clue – NO CLUE – about the Dodger finances. Right now, her attorney is doing what many attorneys do: throw crap against the wall to see if some can stick. Believe it at your own peril!
I have read the filings and I read Dodger Divorce, and as of right now, I have no opinion as to the outcome of the divorce. I do root for Frank over Jamie, but will the court side with him and cut her out? It doesn’t seem likely, but the Dodgers have drawn the wagons and everyone is spouting the company line – it’s business as usual and it is! It’s just that the current usual business involves spending no money. McCourt is silent and secluded. Mannion is cryptic. Colletti is a good soldier, and the rest of the staff are well-paid and told to shut-up. Like it or not, it the posture of someone who is going to play their cards in court, not in the court of public opinion!
You may not like it now, but you could learn to love it later!
