What?? Why???

I don't quite know what to think about this, but I will say that having a religious organization get involved on your behalf on a matter that isn't, in any way, having to do with matters of religious faith is a bit unseemly. This is about sport, Baseball and love of a great franchise. This is not about matters of religious worship and faith. And I know that Tommy likes to talk about the great "Dodger in the sky" all of the time, but ... Come on now!!!

From Here is the actual letter for your own perusal.

In a lengthy letter to MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, representatives of the (First A.M.E.) Church write, "We are deeply troubled by the rancor, media attacks and lack of equity that has been afforded the Los Angeles Dodgers and Frank McCourt as they seek to provide financial stability to one of baseball's most notable franchises."

At a news conference Friday, the clergy members said they met last week with co-owner Frank McCourt.

"We embraced him a week ago," said the Rev. John Hunter, pastor at AME. "We had a breakfast with him. He shared with us in some detail his walk here in Los Angeles with the Dodgers and what he is experiencing."

Here is the part that ... OK, just read it yourself.

Hunter said he believes McCourt has been a "good steward" of the franchise. He said he'd like Selig to respond to the letter and approve the FOX deal.

The letter continues, "Frank McCourt is a man of conviction, courage and integrity...though he may have fallen down somewhat, he has the courage of his convictions to rise back up again and continue the strong legacy of the Los Angeles Dodgers."
Sounds like they layered it on kind of thick, eh?
