Frank McCourt apologizes to Dodgers fans

Frank McCourt moved on from denial to acceptance some time over the past month or two, and yesterday he started to make amends.  Speaking to reporters at the dedication of a youth baseball field yesterday, McCourt said that, for the most part, Dodgers fans have been great to him since he’s been there.  But then he added:

“I know the last couple years were very, very difficult.  I’m very, very sorry about that. We’re going to move forward and handle the situation now in as professional a way as possible and make sure the baton is passed here in a classy way.”

He also said that he’s “clearing up a number of things in my personal life as well,” which I can only assume means that he unfriended Jamie on Facebook and blocked her on Twitter. Good for you, Frank.

Seriously, though, it’s kind of nice to hear a little self-awareness from the guy for once. Too little, too late, but at least it’s something.

    White collar prison is too good for this delusional, tax evading dolt.

    It must be nice to buy a ball club when you are broke, bilk millions of dollars from the team and become rich in the process, divorce your gold-digging bitch of a wife and pay her off with money you don’t have, just to sell the team and make out like a fat rat in the end.

    Only in America…

      Naaahhh, you can do stuff like that in China and Russia now too.

      I don’t think it is fair to characterize his former wife as “gold digging”, there wasn’t any gold to dig…when they got married, the guy had nothing (not even the power to borrow large sums of money).

    I can only imagine how many one-fingered salutes Frank will receive from Dodger fans due to this nice gesture.

    I’m not God. I am not obligated to forgive him just because he asks. Still hate him. Always will.

    Thanks for the two NLCS runs. That was fun. Other than that, get the hell out so the Dodgers can spend some cash.

    Hey! A new picture of Frank. Nice. He looks nearly human in that one. And an apology, too. Did he return any of the loot he lifted off the organization? If not, he can still go to ‘H’, ‘E’, ‘Double Hockey Sticks’.

    Was he invited to the dedication of the youth baseball stadium as a guest of honor or was it more of a fundraiser type of promotion, like a dunk tank or public flogging type of set up?

    A lot little a lot late.

    Apology not accepted. Go away.

    If only Peter Angelos would sell the Orioles to a group lead by Rolipken & apologize for what he has done to the team since he bought it in ’93, running it into the ground & for 14 straight losing seasons!!!
