So McCourt has divorce lawsuit ongoing, now has a lawsuit with the MLB, and soon will be involved in a lawsuit from the SF Giant fan who is in a coma. Sounds like things are going well.

He's also being sued by his lawyer to preempt any charges of malpractice for losing the divorce case.

And investigated by the IRS for tax evasion.

The Jerry Sands Project has been put on hold. Still appearing clueless as to what they should do in left field, the Dodgers sent their top hitting prospect back to the minor leagues and promoted Australian outfielder Trent Oeltjen from triple-A Albuquerque. Of the situation in left field, Manager Don Mattingly said, "It hasn't really panned out." Sands, 23, represented the most recent of their failed attempts to fill the vacancy, hitting .200 with two home runs in 41 games. He was demoted to Albuquerque.

Mattingly went into spring training thinking that journeymen Jay Gibbons and Marcus Thames could form a left-right platoon, with defensive standout Tony Gwynn Jr. spelling them late in games. Although Mattingly claimed at the time that he liked where the Dodgers stood in left field, he said Thursday that "you kind of knew going in it wasn't an ideal situation." Gibbons started the season on the disabled list because of vision problems. When he was activated in early May, Thames took his place on the disabled list with a strained quadriceps. Gibbons was designated for assignment Monday to clear a place on the roster for Thames, who returned from a monthlong absence. Had the Dodgers demoted Sands on Monday, they could have kept Gibbons. Asked why they didn't do that, Mattingly said,

"I don't know, really."

Was it worth potentially losing Gibbons to keep Sands in the majors for three more days? "Gibby wasn't giving us enough to basically have a guy that's pretty much one-dimensional," Mattingly said. "He's not going to steal a bag for you. You have to defend for him." Gwynn started in left field Thursday.

Mattingly said he would ideally like to start light-hitting Gwynn there regularly.

:-b :-b :-b

ESPN: The cash-strapped Los Angeles Dodgers must pay Manny Ramirez $8.33 million by June 30, a source said on Monday.

The polarizing slugger is due the deferred money from the $42 million contract he signed with Los Angeles before the 2009 season. The Dodgers traded him to the White Sox last year but still owe him an additional $8.33 million in 2012 and $8.33 million in 2013. Ramirez retired in April after failing his second drug test in three seasons.


They're gonna have to make a trip up to Vegas and try to hawk Rafael Furcal.

Score one for the boys in Blue!

From ESPN.com:

Bud Selig rejects TV deal between Dodgers and FOX Sports

MLB: Dodger fans are thrilled Bud Selig rejected the Fox TV offer on which the McCourt's divorce settlement is based, nullifying that settlement. (Maybe that'll speed up the exit of these onerous owners). Why did Selig reject the deal? It seems the McCourts had planned to take a sizable portion of the upfront $385 million from the reported $3 billion TV deal for, as Selig put it in a statement on Monday "the personal needs of Mr. McCourt" (read: the divorce settlement, fees, debt). And that's on top of the $100 million they've already funneled out of the team since they've owned it. Ugh. MLB had already taken control of the troubled franchise and is investigating the team's finances.
