Manny is the top Dodgers creditor

mannyjg120.jpgThe Dodgers' bankruptcy filing this morning in Delaware lists Manny Ramirez as the club's leading creditor, owed $21 million. Andruw Jones is next in line at $11 million, and at least he's still playing ball for somebody. Frank McCourt filed for Chapter 11 protection hoping to head off a further takeover by the baseball commissioner. McCourt also announced he has obtained $150 million in financing to keep the team running. LAT, Bloomberg, Dodgers release,, ESPN, LA Biz Observed
