Monday: Boomer Esiason

SI.com legal analyst Michael McCann joined the show to talk about Frank McCourt’s decision to let go of the Dodgers.

McCann tried to explain why now: “He was running out of time and he was running out of time,” McCann said. “A fight with Major League Baseball was going to be too expensive and could lead to him losing the team and making a lot less money.”

McCann explained that the biggest bidder for the Dodgers may not get the team. The best offer will be the one that offers a significant amount up front. MLB doesn’t want to be in a position where someone buys a team on credit basically. That’s where the problems started with McCourt and the Dodgers.

McCann said the Mets are also in a bad position because of the Bernie Madoff legal problems in part, but they have a better relationship with Bud Selig.
