If you see a starving millionaire baseball player on the street, please people - give him a dollar.

Damn!


This rivals Billy Sullivan putting the Patriots $175 million in the hole - How can you screw up with the Dodgers????

If the Dodgers cease operations, that gives us a chance for a couple wins on our next homestand!

Thumbs up to Ethier for trying to keep fans of that team focused on baseball amidst the circus.

JR grew up a huge Brooklyn Dodger fan. He's probably drooling over this situation right now.

"Bud, if I sell the White Sox, can I buy the Dodgers?" :tongue:

I get where you're going... but don't forget this also means a lot of people making a small hourly wage... janitors, food service people, etc.

Yeah, and it's not like they wouldn't get paid, MLB would have to step in and finance the payroll, this has implications because it means MLb can step in and take over the Dodgers.

McCourt goes on ESPN Radio and says he didn't take money out of the team
