this converges with my pet nutty conspiracy theory, though. i believe bud selig engineered this sale because he doesn't want solid ownership in L.A. because he doesn't want to have to deal with another george steinbrenner. i have a colleague who is talking about how mccourt has screwed baseball with this sale, but what is actually happening in my opinion is that mccourt is screwing the new ownership of the dodgers. selig doesn't care about that -- the team was sold for 2 billion, which is what he's happy about. now franchise value is preserved. what goes on in L.A. is the ownership's problems.
Judge Kevin Gross sided with the Dodgers
I can't believe a $2.15 billion sale of an MLB team was approved yesterday without MLB apparently even knowing for sure how the new Dodgers ownership breaks down. Unless it was bad reporting, stories have said the only name in the sales agreement is that of Guggenheim exec Mark Walter. It's widely understood that Magic, Guber, Kasten, and a few others are part-owners, but their shares apparently haven't been determined or announced. It looks like McCourt steamrolled MLB both legally and financially.
Yeah, this is weird. Everyone's so happy to get rid of McCourt a lot of stuff is sort of getting ignored.
when T.J. Simers and a retired Ross Newhan are asking the best questions in the country's second-biggest media market, something has gone wrong. Stan Kasten and Mark Walter are the key guys here and should be getting 98 percent of the attention, not Magic.
Hell, Newhan claims Magic's total investment was $1 million, which, if true, means he'll profit just for showing up.
