Dodgers executive criticizes Selig - MLB take over Dodgers

A newly hired Los Angeles Dodgers executive has criticized baseball commissioner Bud Selig’s move to take control of the team.

Dodgers vice chairman Steve Soboroff called Selig’s action “irresponsible.”

Major League Baseball took over day-to-day operations of the Dodgers on Wednesday because owner Frank McCourt’s troubled finances and unresolved divorce settlement have seemingly paralyzed the franchise.

Soboroff was hired this week to improve the fan experience at Dodger Stadium and help with ties to the community.

Soboroff made his comments Thursday during the Dodgers’ 5-3 win over Atlanta in 12 innings.
