I sincerely hope the courts which are handling the Dodger's bankruptcy and sale of the team will force Mr. McCourt to return the documented $173 million that he and his wife Jamie siphoned off from the team for their own personal pleasure and whims, back into the club! After they took over the team, the ticket, parking, concession and souvenir prices went practically sky high, yet they needed to BORROW money from different sources just to pay player and other employee (I'm guessing) salaries! Incredible!!!
And as a side note, I would like to see the new owners give Ned Colletti the boot! He has made more bone-headed player trade-off and acquisition decisions than any General Manager ought to be allowed to make, and as a result, we lost MANY a good, solid, loyal player to other teams and to forced retirement. And we've picked up a few lemons in the process too. Thanks for allowing me to vent.

One BILLION!?!

Wow, I sure hope the Wilpon family in New York is following this. They could use the money and Mets fans could use new owners.
