- Business Insider says the Dodgers (along with the Mets) will be forced to sell. I know. Old news, right? I think we all get the feeling the McCourt's are not long for LA. Below is an excerpt:
We are also hearing that the McCourts will "have to sell." However, their situation may be more attractive to potential buyers, with an operating profit and a new deal pending with Fox for the rights to broadcast games. The problem is that as long as the McCourt divorce is tied up in, well, the courts, it's not clear who can sell them.

They claim "the shorts" drove the demand for creating all of the "toxic" CDO's that almost brought down the Financial System down because after all, the Investment Banks couldn't sell a CDO to lazy/ignorant institutional investors and CDO managers if there was no one to take the short side of each trade.
