Dodgers: how capitalism destroyed a great team
MLB commissioner Bud Selig announced he will appoint a representative to oversee the "business and the day-to-day operations of the Club."
Selig claims he made the move "because of my deep concerns regarding the finances and operations of the Dodgers."
The bombshell comes in the wake of a report that Frank McCourt arranged a $30 million loan from FOX -- the team's television partner.
JG: Like U.S.A., the Dodgers are broke. In the 1940's people lovingly called the team "Them Bums." Now they have a real bum as a TV partner. Sign of the times.
