That's some serious cash, for a team that needs major help.

Outstanding, love me some Magic.
Amazing the $ paid if the twitter is legit.
Dodger stadium opened in 1962 and is ancient compared to most modern stadiums these days.
The TV rights must be a tremendous cash cow.
OK Magic, once you sign the new TV deal I expect you to spend like the Phillies.

Also, Frank McCourt is laughing all the way to the bank. assssshoooolllleeee.

Magic was just part of a group that was in play, he has some high rollers behind him.

Wiki says McCourt bought the Dodgers for;

"After his failed bid to buy the Red Sox he set his sights on the Dodgers. In 2004, McCourt bought the Los Angeles Dodgers for $430 million from NewsCorp, Rupert Murdoch's flagship enterprise.[8] McCourt's purchase of the Dodgers was financed mostly by debt."

He should be shot rather than clear a billion plus in profit 8 years later.

You could argue the Dodgers have the best picher, Clayton Kershaw, and the best position player, Matt Kemp in all of baseball. They simply havent spent anything on players since the McCourt divorce started a couple years ago. The Dodgers (team) will be fine.

kinda misleading, but I think its a pretty big deal. The group he lead beat the Rams owner.

Going to be a monumental shift for that franchise, both in the happiness of the fanbase and the ability to attract free agents.
Also, they'll finally spend like they should.

Any FA looking at the Dodgers will know they're all about winning, with Magic there.
