- Dodgers file for bankruptcy protection (ESPN.com)
A Frank McCourt quote from "Dodgers file for bankruptcy protection: News release" at Dodgers Blog:
"I simply cannot allow the Commissioner to knowingly and intentionally be in a position to expose the Dodgers to financial risk any longer."
UPDATE: From @SteveRushin:
As Dodgers file for bankruptcy, I'm picturing back of Manny Mota's jersey, with CHAPTER instead of MOTA above the 11.
Source: Jamie McCourt "exasperated" by bankruptcy filing. Wants team sold and this all to end so everyone can move on. More on Espn.com..
McCourt got $150m in interim financing from a unit of JP Morgan Chase. Interesting: another JP Morgan Chase unit works w MLB on club sales.
