One of baseball’s proudest franchises is in tatters, its future to be decided not on the field but in the courtroom.
The Los Angeles Dodgers filed for bankruptcy protection in a Delaware court Monday, blaming Major League Baseball for refusing to approve a multibillion-dollar TV deal that owner Frank McCourt was counting on to keep the troubled franchise afloat.
Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig calls the Los Angeles Dodgers’ turbulent ownership situation “historic,” and acknowledges that the league has stepped in to help financially troubled teams in the past.

When the bright lights come on, Jimmy Rollins turns into J-Roll.
He is the resident diva on the Philadelphia Phillies. He loves the cameras, but prefers talking after he’s finished showering and primping. He’s got a big smile, plenty of charisma and a whole lot of swagger.
One more thing, he can flat-out play baseball.
