So it has all came down to this: That evil man Frank McCourt, corrupt that he is, has used the Los Angeles Dodgers as his own personal checkbook and ran them into the ground so that an investment group headed by Bill Burke
and some unnamed Chinese investors offered to buy the Dodgers for a measly $1.2 billion.
The audacity of that Frank McCourt! How could he run this team down to the point of where it is only worth a pittance? $1.2 billion is chump change! What a fraud!
You all were right – Frank McCourt ruined the team. The team is not worth anything because he has pillaged them of all their assets.
Nobody will want this team and it will never be the same.
Of course, MLB says that it might not be a valid offer and so do you. Of course they do and of course you do.
Of course, no one really knows all of what all this means, but we do know some of what it means:
- It means Jamie will want more for her part;
- It means that the bidding for the Dodgers starts at $1.2 billion (not bad for an asset you say has been run into the ground);
- It means that MLB has lost its’s credability in trying to oust McCourt; and
- It means you are blind if you continue to see only the bad that McCourt has done.
Get a grip! Face reality! Your bitterness against McCourt is your reality I guess, but the real reality is that Frank McCourt bought the Dodgers for $800,000,000 less than they are worth today (allegedly). He must have done one or two things right!
If you think the sale can’t happen, you are delusional. If you think it will happen you are out of touch with reality, but an offer has been made – that’s the truth!
I have been trying to tell you this stuff for two years, but there is no one so blind as those who will not see!
