Frank McCourt Responds To MLB, Bud Selig

Bud Selig rejected a proposed deal between the Los Angeles Dodgers and FOX on Monday, which if it had gone through, could have kept Frank McCourt as the owner of the Dodgers. Every plan McCourt had made to keep the Dodgers hinged on the approval of this deal, so it was unlikely that he was just going to limp away. Now, via the Los Angeles Times, a statement from McCourt's attorney, Steve Susman:

Commissioner Selig’s letter of rejection is not only a disappointment, but worse, is potentially destructive to the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Major League Baseball. Accordingly, we plan to explore vigorously our options and remedies with respect to Commissioner Selig’s rejection of the proposed FOX transaction and our commitment to protect the long-term best interests of the Los Angeles Dodgers

Fight! Fight! Fight! Prior to that paragraph, Susman claimed ...

the Court ordered, among other things, that the FOX transaction is 'in the best interest of the Los Angeles Dodgers and should be consummated immediately;'

This is almost certainly going to be a legal skirmish that will extend for quite a while. McCourt's days as owner of the Dodgers are likely numbered, but it's probably still a pretty big number, maybe with a comma and everything.
