Dodgers Owner -- Cold as Ice

10/24/2009 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a reason Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt bleeds Dodger blue -- judging from the way he fired his wife of 30 years ... his blood is colder than ice.



TMZ obtained the "Notice of Termination" Frank MAILED to his soon-to-be-ex wife Jamie -- who was fired from her job as co-CEO of the team the day before the Dodgers were eliminated from the playoffs. Mind you, this letter was sent just 2 weeks before the couple's 30th wedding anniversary.

The letter begins, "Dear Jamie -- This is to inform you that your employment with and positions as Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chairperson of Los Angeles Dodgers LLC, as well as any and all of the positions that you hold ... are hereby terminated effective immediately."

Though hard to believe, it gets even colder:

"Because your employment is held at-will, the Organization is not required to have cause to terminate your employment and may do so for any reason or no reason at all.

However, your actions, including, but not limited to, your insubordination, non-responsiveness, failure to follow procedures, and inappropriate behavior with regard to a direct subordinate, have made this decision necessary
.
"

And for good measure, we've also learned Frank locked Jamie out of her office today. We're told Jamie called her assistant and asked her to open the office door -- she was informed her key no longer worked.

Nice touch Frank.

Shirl ~~ t.g.    

LQQKS like the war of the sexes on this board. Everyone has to choose a side. ~~~~
In reality ``` We are only going to hear bits and pieces ``` and never the real truth.~~~~~
Jamie did work for this company for almost 30 years. She certainly deserves``` something``` FELLA's!!! come on now.. Did they have children together? If they did then Jamie deserves even more. It's NOT easy giving birth, raising children and working a J`O`B. ~~~~~
So to the people who think that 'the wife' aka Jamie shouldn't get anything ``` open your frigging eyes `` in this case. Don't be so quick to judge when clearly `` this woman isn't a slacker or a sell out..``````` just saying

I KNOW    

For those defending Jamie, I bet you don't know her or have never worked for her because then you'd know she's a certified b!tch and psycho. Those in the know are secretly happy that this b!tch is getting what she deserves. She's can be very nasty and vile to those she employs.

Looks like it's the women against the men on this site. Most men are saying screw her, while the women are saying he's an a$$hole. Considering that most of us know nothing about what really went on in their lives, I think we should give her the benefit of a doubt and give her what she deserves for thirty years of marriage. He will do just fine owning the team and making more money than anyone really needs. I'm sure this will all end with both of them being very rich, so the only ones who will be hurt by all of this is are us fans of the Dodgers. After all, we still are stuck with Manny Ramirez. Is there a way the Dodgers can divorce themselves from him?

balls and kkk are the same person for sure. Every time Krazy K Klown pops up a message, balls is one or two comments ahead or behind him. Of course he/she has nothing to say except for "balls" and some stupid recipe or song or poem. I'm sure he/she needs some kind of medical help for dual personality syndrome. But there are some of you who find their comments funny, so I guess we will be subject to his/her insanity. Just by me writing this comment, he/she is probably creaming in his/her panties.

Edub. . . you really don't remember your facts. When he bought the team, he said he bought it because his wife always wanted to own a team. Check out the old clips, my friend. And frankly (no pun intended), they are both as cold as ice and don't give a darn about their employees, their fans, or anything but how much they can charge. But this is seriously over the top and is pay back for all the ill will they have garnered since they have been in charge. This would make a good reality tv show with Tommy Lasorda acting as the marriage counselor.

The only reason I come to this site is to read the funny stuff that the "Kookster" aka "balls" dreams up. I always get a laugh out of Kooky and I bet I'm not alone.
