Bashing Bud and the McCourts

ESPN's Howard Bryant has a bitter takedown of the disgusting McCourts and how dingbat Bud Selig helped the drag the Dodger franchise into its disreputable state. Here's some pretty good analysis --

The McCourts are in a free-fall for all the public to watch, live in divorce court, California-style; and their grand bauble -- the Dodgers, historically the beacon of continuity, respect and backroom influence -- has crumbled on and off the field. Even worse, the team is being defined by a word that hasn't been associated with the franchise since World War II: unstable.

The collapse is an extraordinary example of greed and unaccountability gone wild in a decade already full of them. Piece by litigated piece, the most important West Coast franchise in the game is being tarnished, and the skeptics who doubted the McCourts in the first place are swallowing the bittersweet aftertaste of being right.

The ghosts of those fans in Brooklyn who were jilted by "the most important West Coast franchise" are laughing their asses off. Karma is a bitch, L.A. Dodger fans.
