The Dodgers pretty much since their inception in the borough of Brooklyn and the city of New York have been a gold standard as far as Major League Baseball franchises go. This is why it is especially sad to see what their fans, players, and coaches are being put through right now. All parties except for the McCourt’s are unwilling participants and by all accounts are an unmitigated disaster of a franchise. The commissioner absolutely did the right thing in basically forcing Frank and Jaime McCourt to sell the team, but where is that process at now? When will there be a light at the end of the tunnel that Dodgers personnel and fans can see?
It seems as though every day you hear about some other ownership group led by a big Hollywood type or investor being in the mix to buy the Dodgers. We know this is probably impossible, but would it possible to may provide the fans with a least a short list of five potential groups that are being heavily considered to buy the team. Considering what they have been through giving them something like that s not to much to ask. Dodgers’ fans can only wonder at where were all of these bidders in 2004 when Selig was pretty much forced to sell the team to the heavily leveraged McCourt’s because there were no other serious bidders?
The team on the field has no doubt been hurt by these off the field transgressions, but has been kept afloat by a core of young players, led by Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp. In today’s MLB landscape though and especially in a city like Los Angeles you cannot expect to win when you are not participating in free agency in any significant way. The Dodgers need look no further than their neighbors in Anaheim who are under stable ownership and are able to pull off moves for guys like Albert Pujols and CJ Wilson.
We are not in any way insinuating an Angels takeover of the L.A. market, but just simply pointing out how the Dodgers off the field woes have contributed directly to the product on the field. From a fan’s point of view they do not see their ticket prices decreasing or their hot dog and beer going down in price so they have every right to be upset about how long it is taking for a conclusion to the cancer that has become the McCourt era in Dodgers history.
At this point Dodgers fans would welcome any owner that would bring life and most importantly money into the ball club. At the risk of starting rumors there is a guy who owns the Dallas Mavericks who would be perfect and he is in the market for a baseball team right now. Just sayin’. Heck who cares if it starts a rumor it will only be one of about ten fresh ones that we hear about the franchise today, right?
