THURSDAY: Dan Patrick returns
THURSDAY: Frank Vogel

Frank McCourt joined the show to talk about the latest news on the Los Angeles Dodgers and to try to clean up some of the controversy around the team.

McCourt isn’t happy MLB put someone else in to run the team. “Major League baseball jumped the gun and put someone in there,” McCourt said.

McCourt said MLB didn’t give him a chance to prove the Dodgers were in good shape. “That’s just obviously just not right,” McCourt said. “In this country we have something called due process. You just don’t go in and seize someone’s property. … They’ve created a lot of confusion and there are are lot of questions right now as to who has what responsibility.”

McCourt said that the problem is that the deal with FOX didn’t get finalized, and once it does, they’ll be in great shape. “I have this deal ready to close, but for some reasons, baseball is dragging their feet and not allowing us to close a deal that is consistent with other deals [around the league].”

McCourt said he hasn’t talked to Commissioner Bud Selig since February and he’s been trying to get a meeting.

“This all happened very quickly with no notice,” McCourt said. No one came in and looked at the books.

McCourt also said that his wife doesn’t need to sign off for him to complete the FOX deal, because it’s in the best interest of the club.
