Frank McCourt Agrees To Sell The Dodgers At Auction

Per Bill Shaikin on Twitter. It's hard, now, to come up with the right words to express what this means to me, but it's a happy day, tempered with the knowledge that once I was pleased to see Fox sell, too. It's every bit as important that the next owner of the Dodgers be fiscally sound and competitively minded.

Hallelujah and amen.

Update: Here's the longer-form story in the Times.

Update 2: Not exactly an update, really, but more like a coda: earlier, the Times reported that Mark Cuban wanted to buy the team but was dissuaded when Frank wanted one billion dollars for it.
