As a fanatic True Blue Dodger fan I second this motion.
What a mess. What a complete mess. It’s orchestrated by Frank McCourt, so the shock factor is nil, but still.
You wonder how any human being can be so completely clueless, but then we’ve been watching this sorry excuse for an owner for way too long now.
His latest fantasy has him selling the team but keeping the parking lots completely surrounding Dodger Stadium. Hey, now there’s a sweet deal. Thursday marked the first day the siege of the Alamo began in 1836. Getting surrounded by the enemy is never a very good idea.
So every single one of the nine remaining bidders on the team need to get out of the Dodgers pool right now. (emphasis mine)
I worry, though, that the ego's that comes with billionaire status might negate any chance that they could collude. Nevertheless, I think every true Dodger fan would applause the gesture and I am certain the loyalty of the fanbase to whoever becomes the owner would become tenfold. Again, emphasis below is mine.
So listen up, you nine remaining bidders. I don’t care if you’re Magic Johnson or Stan Kroneke or gazillionaire Steve Cohen. You buy the team and are willing to let McCourt keep the parking lots, you are not wanted. You don’t deserve the Dodgers.
