This "Being Controled By MLB" thing works for the Dodgers
The Dodgers were absolutely reeling. They went on a 5 game losing streak. (Only Tony LaRussa's inexplicable decision to pitch to Matt Kemp on Sunday afternoon kept it from being a 6 game losing streak.)
They were beaten soundly on Tuesday 10-1 by Atlanta. Then on Wednesday, Bud Selig and company took over the team, shocked that Frank McCourt couldn't keep the team afloat financially. (Never mind the fact that Selig KNEW he didn't have the cash to keep the team afloat. Let's not let facts sneak into this.)
Since MLB took over the team? They beat the Braves 6-1 on Wednesday. They won with another Matt Kemp walk off shot yesterday.
And today they went to Wrigley and clobbered the Cubs 12-2.
The Dodgers are now above .500. They are 3-0 after the take over.
Maybe Dodger fans shouldn't be so quick to see a new owner!
