It’s been a happy last couple months in Dodgertown. Matt Kemp is signed for years to come, Clayton Kershaw will hopefully follow suit in the near future, and He Who Must Not Be Named has agreed to sell the team. Everything is blue skies, bubble gum and joy.
But not so fast Dodger fans. Your happiness could be short-lived.
Guess who might be lurking around Dodger Stadium for years to come, creeping in the shadows of our parking lots waiting to take your money. None other than the man who has made your baseball-loving lives miserable for the last few years. Mr. I Pretend to Love Los Angeles When All I Really Love is Myself McCourt.
According to Bill Shaikin of the LA Times, McCourt can sell the lots to one of the prospective bidders, or he can keep the land to try to develop it.
In my humble (hopeful) opinion, I think McCourt is planning to use the lots to get as much money out of bidders as possible. He knows that no one wants him involved in anything Dodgers-related ever again, and will use that to his advantage.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed. We’ve all seen just how ugly things can get when McCourt is involved.
