Frank McCourt, the Dodger owner will not be able to meet payroll when it comes to paying his players and others on Thursday. McCourt made the decision, not Major League Baseball head honcho Bud Selig.
McCourt thinks this will block Bud Selig from taking over the team and forcing a sale. The courts may not see it Frank's way however.
McCourt has run this team into the ground by borrowing money and taking out loans against the team and it's property, including his parking lots he owns.
Straight up, the Dodgers need a new owner. McCourt needs to do the right thing and not let this drag out. Hopefully, after that happens, Bud Selig does the right thing, and let's Marc Cuban buy the Dodgers.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Maverick Changes
If you guessed our blind item from last week, you knew it was about the Dodger owners The McCourts.
Within a day of the BLIND ITEM post, TMZ busted Jamie McCourt with a younger man, in fact, someone who worked for the Dodgers and was fired a month before.
McCourt fired Jamie last week by email and press release and changed the locks on her so when she came into the office the next day, she couldn't get in.
Frank has filed as him being the sole owner of the Dodgers. Jamie is filing for divorce as well and is asking for close to 500 grand a month. Wow. Jamie is warning Frank if he does not comply, she will drop some bombshell's in the court room. She will be in court today to try to be reinstated as co-owner of the Dodgers.
Hmm. What is that bombshell she will drop? If you remember that blind item, you know what is coming next!
BTW, thanks to the Funkenberry readers who posted on TMZ about the blind item. I did see they removed the comments but thank you nonetheless!-Dr.FB
Frank McCourt passed away at the age of 78 on Sunday. He died due to complications of the deadly skin cancer Melanoma.
You will be missed Frank. Much love and condolences to Frank's friends and family.-Dr.FB
