Bill Shaikin Interview With Frank McCourt

Bill Shaikin of The Los Angeles Times sat down for a lengthy interview with embattled Dodgers owner Frank McCourt on Friday and posted the transcript today. McCourt discussed his meeting with Tom Schieffer, MLB's appointed trustee, as well as the league's investigation into the team's finances. Officials with MLB told him as recently as May of last year that the Dodgers "were a model franchise as far as our financial performance was concerned."

McCourt reiterated that he intends to maintain control of the team and again apologized to the Dodgers' faithful. Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports offered up some more on the situation.
