Closing Of Dodgers Sale To Guggenheim Baseball Delayed Until At Least Today
Published May 1, 2012
SEE YA LATER: In L.A., Steve Dilbeck writes that from a bloggers perspective, he’s sorry to see McCourt leave the Dodgers, as the former owner “was a regular hit machine” when it came to stories on the web. Dilbeck wrote that "in the world of blogging, you can see every single day how many hits you received, how many each post generated. And I’m here to tell you, [Frank] McCourt was good for business.” Dilbeck: “I am seriously worried the Guggenheim Baseball Management just won’t carry its page-view weight. It could force me to actually have to work for hits" (L.A. TIMES, 5/1). In California, Howard Cole writes Frank McCourt “holds no more power over the precious resources of our fair city,” so everyone can “all exhale and get on with our lives.” Cole adds, “The gloom and doom of the McCourt years is behind us. Frank has adiosed himself from the premises, the locks have been changed and everything really is going to be OK” (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 5/1).
