We tend to focus on the doom and gloom around here, and for generally good reasons. But as Tony Jackson, who I'm happy to see at ESPN Los Angeles, points out, it's been a damn good run on the field:
When Frank McCourt took ownership of the once-proud franchise in 2004, a point at which the Dodgers had gone seven seasons without reaching the playoffs and 16 years without winning so much as a postseason game, one of his stated goals was to restore the Dodgers' "brand." For the most part, that seems to have been accomplished. The Dodgers have reached the playoffs four times in the past six seasons, and they have advanced to the National League Championship Series in each of the past two.
Tony has a point. So my question to you:
If it ended tomorrow, was the McCourt regime successful?
Define success however you'd like.---
