Fields, Manny — Or A New Malibu Mansion? McCourts Clank Again
So now we know where Manny’s money went. To a new beachfront home in Malibu for Jamie McCourt. Wait, not one home.Of course, that was my initial reaction, too. It's all about cash flow; in this era where jumbo mortgages are hard to come by, I wonder where they came up with the financing for that. It also bears repeating that the Dodgers != the McCourts.
Two of them, side by side.
For $46 million dollars.
$46 mil isn’t just garish, it’s WAY over the top, especially when Mrs. McCourt was recently quoted saying how tough times are, how the economy calls for more prudent decision-making, and that’s why the Dodgers ought to reconsider big-money investments in top-end free agents.
What hysterical hypocrisy!
Maybe I’m a home buy or two behind, but don’t the McCourts already own some giant mansion in Holmby Hills? Like some $20 million dollar palace?
Rob, I have a New Years resolution for you and some journalistic advice -
Never use the word 'unbeleiable' in story about the McCourts again. You should know by now. ;-)...... and with the use of the word 'Again" implies you do know....
