Los Angeles Dodgers TAKEN OVER By MLB

4/20/2011 6:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Major League Baseball has launched an open investigation into the finances and policies of the Los Angeles Dodgers ... and a rep for the MLB tells TMZ the league is "looking into the possibility of replacing the owner."

LA Dodgers New Owner

MLB commissioner Bud Selig announced he will appoint a representative to oversee the "business and the day-to-day operations of the Club."

Selig claims he made the move "because of my deep concerns regarding the finances and operations of the Dodgers."

The bombshell comes in the wake of a report that Frank McCourt arranged a $30 million loan from FOX -- the team's television partner.

That's what happens when you let someone whom has only owned parking lots own a complex organization. From Boston no less. Go back to Beantown.

Why would anyone buy a MLB team, when it can be taken away by the whims of the commissioner?

This is the best possible outcome for the Dodgers. They (the McCourts) have pilfered every last dollar from this once storied franchise without putting one red cent back into the team. God bless MLB for doing this....we might get the train back on the right track now.

May the McCourts rot in IRS hell.

I'm a Yankee fan in LA, and let me tell yall Dodgers fans are the full of THUGS 4 realz!! LOL

I was smacked from behind of my head by fist by young Latino in downtown LA when I wearing Yankee hat on and am still traumatized.

Dodgers fans are the most dangerous of them all I must say, because their team SUCKS big time, eh?

Yankees fans may not b the nicest baseball fans either, but
at least we never put anyone in comma in the Yankees parking lot!

SHAME ON DODGERS!!! I MEAN IT!!!
