Frank McCourt Meets Dodger Payroll for Now


Well, looks like Dodger players and front office staff will be getting their direct deposits on May 31st. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt has successfully made the 5/31 payroll of approximately $9.8 million according to a blog post at the Los Angeles Times.

June 15th payroll appears to still be at risk, as the same LA Times blog report indicated that McCourt was still searching for funds to enable him to pay staff and players for June.

Late June becomes even more problematic for the team, as Manny Ramirez is owed more than $6 million in deferred compensation in addition to regular team payroll according to the Times.
