Frank McCourt must pay $8.33 million to Manny Ramirez by June 30

You better cover your jewels, Frank. They'll come after those next.
Manny is still ramming it to Frank McCourt. Molly Knight of ESPN reports:
The cash-strapped Los Angeles Dodgers must pay Manny Ramirez $8.33 million by June 30....[Ramirez] is due the deferred money from the $42 million contract he signed with Los Angeles before the 2009 season.
I'm almost tempted to take back all the bad things I've said about Scott Boras. History, however, tells me not to pop the cork on the Champagne just yet. If McCourt has a strong suit, it's his cockroach-like resiliency. As the writer Knight noted earlier in a tweet, he's certainly not making it easy for Bud Selig to seize the team.

I'll add this last note: Blue Heaven blog makes a sobering observation about the collective glee Dodger fans feel whenever McCourt has a setback: "On a side note, how sad is it that I and many of my brethren seek this kind of ending, any kind of ending, for the current ownership of the team?"


  1. Frank will slip up eventually. he will never regain the faith of the fans. If McCourt is back in power next year, then I will not be renewing my mini plan or attending anymore games.

  2. Good and another post from you admin :)
