The Dodgers new President has a window of opportunity to deliver, but it is not forever. In fact, it may end before November.
I have no clue what Frank McCourt is really like. I shook his hand once. Is he a greedy, egocentric, self-absorbed opportunist or is he a “regular Joe?” I think the former is closer than the later, but if you believe the stuff TJ Slimers and Bill Plaschke write, you are really gullible. Forgot the “knee jerk” reaction that you may feel coming on. Focus on the fact that if Frank is a greedy bastard and needs to make money, then he knows that the best way he can do that is to put “butts in seats.”
This could be a good thing for Dodger fans.
On October 29th, the Dodger season ticket holders have to pay at least 1/5th of the cost of their season ticket.
That’s less than 2 week away.
How do you do that?
There are a few ways:
- Make a trade for an impact player (kinda’ hard to do now);
- Sign some of your free agents; or
- Lock up your best young players with long-term deals.
Frank almost has to do at least one or two of the above.
