MLB: Frank McCourt and the Worst Owners in Baseball

In less than two years, Frank McCourt has become one of the worst owners in baseball but how does he compare to other similarly bad owners around baseball?

Frank McCourt keeps finding ways to get in the news for all the wrong reasons.

His latest indignity occurred when MLB turned down a proposed deal between the Dodgers and Fox News when they discovered that money from the deal would benefit McCourt more than the team.

It places McCourt one step closer to a fight with MLB over ownership of the Dodgers as fans wonder just how far rock bottom is for the troubled owner. 

There's no question that McCourt is one of the worst owners in baseball, but where does he rank on the list?

This article features one writer's opinion regarding the eight worst owners in baseball, and as bad as McCourt is, he has company among these names.

(A special mention goes to Dave Zirin's exceptional book Bad Sports, which delves further into bad owners in all sports and served as a valuable research tool for this list. I encourage readers to check it out and learn more about the folks who run franchises.)
