The Los Angeles Times reported two days ago that the Dodgers don’t have enough cash to make payroll at the end of May. Major League Baseball spokesman Pat Courtney declined to comment on whether MLB would step in and provide the money.
Well, there ya go. McCourt has so screwed up this thing so much that we could potentially lose Kemp, Ethier, Kershaw, Billingsley, and the like for nothing. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't have the US Senate able and ready to bail out his high leverage, high spending ways. Fortunately for us, we have MLB to cover our backs.
