Happy Tuesday! Good to be back from a long weekend!
L.A. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt has filed for bankruptcy protection, a move some are calling one of the darkest moments in the history of this famous baseball team. McCourt hopes this move will buy him time to make payroll. McCourt owes millions of dollars in payroll this Thursday, and he hopes he can convince a bankruptcy judge that he can raise those millions in the next 2 days. If McCourt doesn’t raise the cash, the bankruptcy judge could take over, and in order to make sure everyone gets paid, the court could sell the Dodgers to the highest bidder. What probably will happen? Major League Baseball will probably step in and say, "OK, you filed for Bankruptcy, so we're going to take over the Dodgers & WE will pay all the people owed money." As far as on the field, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly doesn’t think the team's financial problems are going to affect how each Dodger performs at the plate... and it looks like he’s right... the Dodgers beat the Twins last night 15-0! There will be more news breaking on this story later today after the bankruptcy hearing.
