Now it gets interesting for the McCourts

mccourtslogo.jpgAfter a procedural gathering this morning of the city's most fortunate lawyers — those with a piece of the McCourts divorce proceedings — a couple of things became clear. One is that the next phase, if it goes to trial, won't conclude until after this coming Dodgers season, and maybe not before the following season. And also, Jamie's lawyers want Frank to restart considering his ex-wife as his business partner in the team. Frank's lawyers nixed the idea, but there's still the question of how in the world Frank can afford to keep the team. Meanwhile, the Dodgers start spring training in about three weeks.

Dodgers notes: Manny Ramirez has signed to play in Tampa Bay this season, for $2 million; the Dodgers were paying him $25 million a season. Ex-Dodger bust Andruw Jones has signed with the Yankees.

Angels notes: What were they thinking by trading for Vernon Wells and one of the worst contracts in baseball? Baseball sites are aghast.
