“Pursuant to my authority as Commissioner, I informed Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt today that I will appoint a representative to oversee all aspects of the business and the day-to-day operations of the Club. I have taken this action because of my deep concerns regarding the finances and operations of the Dodgers and to protect the best interests of the Club, its great fans and all of Major League Baseball. My office will continue its thorough investigation into the operations and finances of the Dodgers and related entities during the period of Mr. McCourt’s ownership. I will announce the name of my representative in the next several days. The Dodgers have been one of the most prestigious franchises in all of sports, and we owe it to their legion of loyal fans to ensure that this club is being operated properly now and will be guided appropriately in the future.”—

Oh, the times that were had. Guess we’ll be seeing a new Dodgers owner in the next 6 to 18 months.
What a horrible game. Disastrous job by the bullpen, I dont even know what to say. I hope they get it together. By the way did you all see Jerry Sands? He has earned my respect. And how about Andre Ethier with that 16 game hitting streak, Yeah!! See I’m just trying to highlight the positives, trying to cover up a 10-1 loss…. :-l
