MLB Jersey Fail: “Chapter 11″ Dodgers Jerseys Here!

Of course by now everybody knows that the idiot running the Los Angeles Dodgers, Frank McCourt, filed the team for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. I checked my email this morning and saw the above email from MLB Shop. (Side note: Nice to know that Adrian Gonzalez is not only the face of the Red Sox organization already, but the face of all Major League Baseball.

    On the other hand “bankrupt” also seems to be blocked from purchase.

    Still, that’s a pretty big $194 tab for what amounts to a novelty T-shirt!
