    I was thinking about that as i read the ESPN piece on him. How lucky were we that the team was sold to the right people - remember they thought John Henry and company would pilfer the team?

    It is embarrassing to the MLB that the Dodgers.. yes the Dodgers are in their predicament thanks to Frank McCourt.

    Actually I feel kind of bad for the guy. His wife is shameless, was a terrible CEO, and basically looted him and the Dodgers for many many years.

    it could have been us yes and im glad we got the owners we did. but frank mcourts plan of a brand new ball park in southie on the land he owns on the water front sounds awesome to me. im not a fenway guy. i think the place is a dump. nice to look at on tv and the place is electric. but imo its time for a new place.
