It's no secret that Frank McCourt's tenure as Dodgers owner has been marked by more misses than hits. Yet as the Dodgers continue to fall further back in the standings, one can't help but direct a lot of anger at what McCourt has done over the last two years to get to this point.
When I attended a Dodgers game last month, I was disappointed at not just the low crowd but the lack of energy. The fans who were there tried in vain to create a great atmosphere but it was disappointing as a fan to see empty seats that symbolized how fans abandoned the Dodgers.
You can blame the team's poor record, but that blame falls also at the feet of McCourt. The only thing McCourt hasn't seem to do is dismantle the Dodgers and sell players to cut costs. Waving goodbye to Rafael Furcal was almost a surprise but thankfully it was only major move compared to the rumors most expected.
This is just one Dodger fan's opinion of his five worst moments as owner. I tried to keep this on--the-field related but it was hard considering he's made a lot of missteps off the field. I also admit this list made me reconsider Rupert Murdoch as perhaps the second worst owner in team history behind McCourt.
