All of the hullabaloo over Dodgers seems to center around owner Frank McCourt. Can he make payroll? Is he going to sue Major League Baseball and Bud Selig? There's a minor detail that's often glossed over, though: there's a co-owner out there, and she wants the Dodgers to be sold immediately. From the Los Angeles Times:
Jamie McCourt asked a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to order the immediate sale of the Dodgers, in a filing submitted on Wednesday and made public on Thursday.
If the motion is granted by the judge overseeing the McCourt's divorce, the Dodgers could have a new owner by next season, which would avoid a Thunderdome-style legal confrontation with Bud Selig and MLB. From KTLA.com:
It's believed Jamie McCourt will argue that her ex-husband's actions have affected the value of the club and, as part owner, she has the power to have the team's value maximized.
McCourt is asking for a hearing date on the motion Thursday morning.
