Frank McCourt to Sue Major League Baseball

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig told Dodgers owner Frank McCourt on Wednesday he will appoint a MLB representative in a few days to oversee all aspects of the business and day-to-day operations of the club. However, Frank McCourt appeared to signal his intent to challenge Selig’s decision and I’m being told he will sue MLB for control of the team. “Major League Baseball sets strict financial guidelines which all 30 teams must follow. The Dodgers are in compliance with these guidelines,” McCourt said in a statement issued late Wednesday night. “On this basis, it is hard to understand the Commissioner’s action.” My tipster tells me  McCourt has already retained the services of law firm Sullivan & Cromwell…The Dodgers dwindling attendance and fan beating was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I think McCourt is finished in Dodgertown. -TO
