… everybody was sick of him!
It turns out that Frank actually was easier to get rid of than a cockroach. I am shocked!
But seriously folks, how can we be sure Bug Selig won’t pick another buffoon?
Mark Cuban? It would be nice – he’d probably have to sell the Mavs, but I think there are two barriers for him:
- Bud doesn’t want him because he’s afraid of him; and
- Mark Cuban likely won’t overpay for the Dodgers… and somebody else will (I could see $1.2 Billion)!
The vetting process will take some time and it might be optimistic to think a new owner will be in place by opening day. The question is what impact this will have on the Dodgers off-season? One thing I think will happen is that Frank will try and sign Prince Fielder, because any potential owner would love to have another “superstar” to put butts in seats and that could impact instant value. Will the Bankruptcy Court and MLB allow it? That’s the question. The other question is what will Tommy say to TJ Simers now?
: THE LA TIMES
reports that Peter O’Malley wants to again run the Dodgers and is seeking to lead an investment group. I have three things to say about that:
- 73 Years Old!
- Hell NO!
