No Seppuku For Frank
Any involuntary termination requires a three-fourths vote of the owners. None of the other 29 owners has spoken out publicly in support of McCourt, and one said Selig has all the votes should he recommend the Dodgers' franchise be terminated.
"The vote would be 29-0," said the owner, not authorized to comment publicly because of the possibility of litigation. McCourt has not ruled out a legal challenge to Selig, most likely centered on the allegation that the commissioner has abused his powers.
