Frank McCourt Suing MLB in Response To League's Takeover of Los Angeles Dodgers
Frank McCourt, the embattled owner (for now) of the Los Angeles Dodgers, isn't going quietly into the night.
Reports came trickling out on Wednesday that Major League Baseball would be assuming control of the Dodgers. Commissioner Bud Selig informed the club that a trustee would oversee the day-to-day operations of the Bums, a move spurred by his "deep concerns regarding the finances and operations" of the team.
And since no massive ego likes to be humiliated or outdone, McCourt seems to be in the process of seeing MLB's ante and raising it a lawsuit. According to TMZ, the filing will seek an injunction against Selig's "arbitrary and capricious" decision to assume control of los Doyers.
Needless to say, this story is still in its infancy.
The league office has a point because the Dodgers have been an embarrassment for the last two years—rife with homegrown, young talent that's withering on the vine in the absence of any reinforcements from management.
On the other hand, McCourt—who is a Bay Area hero for crippling the Bums—also has a point. The New York Mets aren't exactly thriving in either their finances or their baseball operations so why, pray tell, should LA feel the heavy hand of Major League Baseball?
It appears we're gonna find out.
