It was announced yesterday that a group led by Magic Johnson would be buying the Dodgers for $2.15 billion!
What is amazing about this…the current owner Frank McCourt will walk away from a franchise he drove into bankruptcy. Only in America can something so terribly wrong make the bad guy look brilliant. The McCourts bought the Dodgers in 2004 for $430 million. Which at the time was owned by NewsCorp, the company owned by Rupert Murdoch.
What do you think of what has happened to this once proud franchise?
