SB Nation Los Angeles: End Game For Frank McCourt

SB Nation L.A.’s Eric Stephen:

The erosion of confidence in the team has been apparent this season at Dodger Stadium. Attendance has dropped significantly within this season. On their second homestand of the year, three of the last five games have had crowds under 30,000, something that hasn’t happened since 2004. Don’t forget, that is just tickets sold; judging by the actual number of people at the park, it appears attendance has been far lower. This has been the perfect storm of negativity in Los Angeles: fans are fed up with McCourt, the Dodgers are struggling on the field, and the perception of Dodger Stadium as an unsafe venue has skyrocketed since the opening day beating of Bryan Stow and the too little, too late, PR-driven response from McCourt was distasteful.

There are still many questions to be answered in the coming weeks and months, but McCourt’s rein in Los Angeles is obviously limited. And it’s hard to imagine anyone missing him.
