MLB Commissioner Bud Selig took the extraordinary step of saying Major League Baseball was taking over operations of one of America's most famous teams, the one that integrated the national pastime, broke Brooklyn's heart and paved the way for coast-to-coast expansion. The takeover is possibly a prelude to Selig forcing a sale of the franchise.
While there are some clear differences (Dodger owner Frank McCourt's divorce and debate over whether he or his wife owned the team) over the motives for this takeover and the state government takeover of Benton Harbor, there are also some striking similarities. Benton Harbor is being taken over by the government in a way that is not entirely unlike this takeover of the Los Angeles Dodgers. What do you make of this situation in the MLB and the situation in Benton Harbor?
