Frank McCourt, MLB To Meet Wednesday

Frank McCourt -- semi-partial-maybe owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, depending on which press release or court transcript you read -- is going to meet with Major League Baseball in New York on Wednesday. According to Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times, what happens behind closed doors will go a long way towards figuring out whether or not McCourt will attempt to take legal action to regain control of the franchise. Quoth the Times:

McCourt wants to know exactly what Schieffer has been asked to do, and how Selig envisions the Dodgers will be run during Schieffer's tenure. In addition to discussing how the Fox deal -- a deal that has been sitting on Selig's desk for close to a month -- would stabilize the Dodgers financially, McCourt would like Selig to consider the plans of new Vice Chairman Steve Soboroff in improving the fan experience at Dodger Stadium and in revitalizing the team's bonds within the community.

To recap how things have gone: McCourt had trouble meeting payroll for the Dodgers in April, taking out a loan from Fox at the same time he was presenting MLB with a potential multi-billion television deal with the media conglomerate. The possibility of a historic franchise becoming insolvent was too much for Selig, as he and MLB wrested control of the team.

Selig is not expected to be at the meeting, according to the Times.
