Jamie McCourt Out as Dodger CEO

via evilbeetgossip.film.com

On December 15, 1968, Dodger general manager Al Campanis traded his son Jim, a catcher, to the Royals.  41 years later, uneasiness at a Dodger family holiday dinner has resurfaced yet again, as the McCourts bitter battle has claimed its first victim.

SI.com is reporting that Dodgers' owner Frank McCourt has fired his estranged wife Jamie as CEO.  From Jon Heyman:

Jamie McCourt was fired within the last two days, according to several sources. But this is not likely to be the last she's heard from, as she has said through lawyers that she intends to stake a claim to the franchise, which may be worth a billion dollars, or more.

Bill Shaikin of the LA Times gives us this news:

Jamie McCourt is believed to be lining up investors for a possible effort to buy out her husband and gain sole control of the team. In addition, she is believed to have started calling prominent baseball figures, with the intention of arranging meetings to discuss the direction of the team.

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports has received confirmation from Jamie McCourt's attorney, Dennis Wasser, that she has been fired.  Wasser promised litigation by Jamie McCourt, noting "She will address this ... in the courtroom."  That pause is much funnier if read as Triumph The Insult Comic Dog.

This is going to get worse before it gets better.  It's hard to imagine a functional organization with dysfunction at the top.
