The McCourt trial resumes with a bang

Sep 20, 2010, 2:33 PM EDT

Jamie McCourt’s driver hit a pedestrian before the trial even got going today, so there’s that. He’s supposedly OK and didn’t need medical treatment. Jamie will probably give him a house or a job with the Dodgers or something to sign a lawsuit waiver.

In the trial itself, this morning, Jamie McCourt took the stand and testified that she and Frank discussed selling the team multiple times over the years, with the upshot being that if it didn’t make money, they’d unload it.  Contrast this with Frank McCourt’s statements that he’s never considered selling the team and wants his sons to own it one day.

Of course, given the way they’ve used debt to finance the team and their entire lifestyle, I’m not sure the McCourts could recognize whether the team is losing money anyway. “Look, dear! Another check from the bank! We must be making money!”

    Was the pedestrian wearing catcher’s motley? Maybe the Bums could trade her driver to the Gnats for Nyjer Morgan….

    It is amazing how 2 super rich people that own a franchise such as the Dodgers can throw away so much. They are an embarrassment to the city. The money they blow on legal fees is ridicoulous. I hope they both lose and sell the franchise.
