Dodger Stadium work on hold *

mccourtslogo.jpgRenovation of the loge level at Dodger Stadium won't take place this winter, or as they're calling it around the stadium, the winter of the McCourts' discontent. For the second year in a row, the loge redo has been postponed. The Dodgers are citing the economy, but the Los Angeles Business Journal says others see the war between Frank and Jamie McCourt behind the decision to hold off on all that spending.

Noted: Bob Keisser in the Long Beach Press-Telegram observes that Jamie's new beau, Jeff Fuller, resembles former Dodger Jeff Kent. Keisser also says there's rumors that an American League team has offered to take Manny Ramirez's contract off the Dodgers' books. * Update: GM Ned Colletti says no AL team has asked about Manny.

And: TMZ's camera spotted Jamie being driven by Fuller this weekend.
