    Default Frank and Jamie McCourt have a question for Dodgers fans

    Would you rather have a top free agent or 50 youth fields in L.A., Frank and Jamie McCourt wonder.

    Would Dodgers fans react negatively if the team were to pay big money to free agents when the nation's economy is in sharp decline and many Americans are losing their jobs?

    thats a stupid question. If they are worried about fans and the economy LOWER TICKET AND CONCESSION PRICES. No worries that will never hqappen.

    People wake up!!! They are horrible owners. The McCourts speak about this because of the future backlash for not signing Manny or any big free agents. They don't care about the fans at all.

    I am going to disagree with you here. Do you not remember how bad the O'Malleys were from 1989-fox

    Do you remember what the Fox years were like?

    You are right....Fox is doing the same thing the McCourt's are now doing. It's more about making money (extravagant amounts) and inflating their enormous ego. They made a ton of free money with the Manny trade. They made a ton of money with the Manny memorobilia. They made a ton of money going to the 1st round of the playoffs and then the NL Championship. The McCourt's crave attention. The McCourts are purposely doing themselves so they are not the "scapegoat" when they dont make any really improvements to their team. You know that and I know that.

    I agree with most of this.
