The Los Angeles Dodgers organization has a myriad of issues that we won’t get into today. But the one issue that is worth mentioning is that the Dodgers are short on cash, mula, cheddar, and stacks. I think you get the idea here.
Yeah, businesses have bad months here and there and cash flow is thin and it ends up being no big deal. But when a business is so cash strapped that they are struggling to make payroll, that’s a problem. A big problem.
So just in case you haven’t gotten the idea from everything you’ve read thus far, let me make it plain. The Los Angeles Dodgers (mainly Frank McCourt) have a big problem.
The Dodgers currently do not have enough cash to meet payroll through this month, potentially accelerating a showdown between owner Frank McCourt and Major League Baseball.
The cash shortage was confirmed Tuesday by two people familiar with the matter, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the possibility of McCourt filing suit against MLB.
If McCourt were to fail to meet payroll, the league would cover the expenses and would have the option to seize the Dodgers from him, according to one of the people familiar with the situation.
It would suck for Frank McCourt if his team was actually repoed by MLB.
