The Los Angeles Dodgers are for sale. After almost a decade of seemingly irreparable damage done by former owner (and charlatan) Frank McCourt, the team is on the market.
This was arguably the ugliest season in the team's historic history. It started on opening day with the unfortunate beating of San Francisco Giants fan, Bryan Stow, and continued throughout the year with dismal attendance, bankruptcy negotiations and poor play on the field.
The highlights of the season of course were NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw and NL MVP runner-up (although with the recent Ryan Braun situation, he may not be runner-up much longer) Matt Kemp. The two of them combined with a healthy Andre Ethier to form a great trio that any new owner would love to build around.
Several groups have come to the table sharing their interest in purchasing the team, but none as appealing as the group led by Los Angeles hero Ervin “Magic” Johnson.
I have been born and raised in Los Angeles, and as a lifelong Dodger fan there is no one that I would rather have buy my team.
