McCourts Rank 30th of 30 MLB Owners

Jim Caple of ESPN.com ranked the 30 MLB owners, and guess where the Dodgers' first couple ended up? Dead last:

30. Frank and Jamie McCourt, Dodgers: The team has performed fairly well (two NLCS series), but then again, a lot of real estate portfolios performed well for a while, too. The McCourts paid an astrologer six figures to be a team consultant ("I sense big things for Juan Pierre in Dodger Stadium"). They're so over-leveraged they might not meet payroll, and even attendance is plummeting. It's so bad that Walter O'Malley would have a higher approval rating in Brooklyn now than the McCourts have in Los Angeles.

Hat tip to Jason for finding this yesterday. May 31 is only five days away.

In his defense, he was ranked 30th only cause they didn't have anything lower.

Dodger Stadium is highly rated, at least!
