Frank McCourt Almost Bought the Angels

A fantastic summary of the entire Dodgers McCourt escapade brings up the chilling, if already reported, fact: In 2003, Frank McCourt almost bought the Angels. McCourt wanted to make a nothing-down offer for the Angels, eventually purchased by billboard magnate Arte Moreno for $180 million. McCourt didn’t have much more cash on his third try, bidding for a Dodgers team (then) considered more than twice as valuable as the Angels... (Fox) executives estimated he wouldn’t have the financial resources to wrest the Dodgers TV rights from Fox and start his own (network). Find me a scarier proposition this Halloween than FrankenJamie owning the Angels...
