We Could Lose Our Best Players

The likelihood of this is so far remote it's probably not even worth mentioning, but since Bloomberg brought it up... well then, here it is.

Los Angeles Dodgers players could file for free agency if the team can’t make payroll, Major League Baseball players union spokesman Greg Bouris said in an e-mail.

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.

  1. I love those players and hope they spend their whole careers with the Dodgers.

    However, if we have to lose them to rid ourselves of McCourt, then that is a price I am willing to pay.
