Then Shaikin notes that there is at least one bidder willing to allow McCourt to own the parking lots. Whoever that is I say "screw you!" I would love to see a united front of all potential Dodger bidders along with a loud fan outcry demanding that everything must be for sale. For the love of God please do not let McCourt keep his filthy little fingers in town.
Rick Caruso and former Dodgers manager Joe Torre have withdrawn a joint bid to buy the Dodgers, three people familiar with the sale process said Thursday.
Caruso cited owner Frank McCourt's refusal to include the Dodger Stadium parking lots in the sale, according to the people, who declined to be identified because they were not authorized to discuss the sale process.
UPDATE: LA Times now has a copy of the letter Torre's group sent to MLB. Check it out here.
