By Elimination, McCourt Must Be a Lover

Hot off of winning the Scopus award for his minty-fresh breath, Frank McCourt got a new mention at the end of today's New York Times "On Baseball" column by Murray Chass:

Maybe it’s the environment — laid-back Los Angeles. Maybe he would have been tougher in a tougher environment — Boston. But Frank McCourt bought the Dodgers, not the Red Sox, and he is what he is. What he is not is a fighter.

McCourt, who has been described as not being a troublemaker, chose not to pursue a tampering charge against the Red Sox over the recent signing of J. D. Drew despite the urging of officials from other clubs.

Or maybe Frank just knew about JD Drew's shoulder?
