So the first salvo in the Frank McCourt vs. MLB bankruptcy financing battle goes to MLB. Who would have thought that a financing option that included nearly $15 million more in fees and interest payments would have been ruled to not be in the best interest of the Dodgers. At least someone is looking out for the best interest of the Dodgers.
For those of you who are so inclined, Bill Shaikin at the L.A. Times, the guru of all things McCourt has a copy of the judge’s ruling against McCourt. I’m not going to try to pretend what all of it means, but just the words “judge rules against McCourt,” has to make even the most cynical Dodger fan smile.
Oh by the way the Dodgers have a game tonight at the Ravine, not like anyone knows with the McCourt sideshow in full effect. One thing I do know is I’ll be throwing back a cold one tonight on behalf of Judge Gross. It’s about time someone ruled in the best interest of the Dodgers and not Frank McCourt.
Steve Dilbeck at the Times also has more information on today’s proceedings.
