The Dodgers won't try to sell the team's television rights now, and Fox agrees not to object to the settlement between baseball and Frank McCourt. This agreement means "McCourt has reached agreement with his two primary adversaries in U.S. Bankruptcy Court — MLB and Fox — and can proceed to meet an April 30 deadline for the sale of the Dodgers," Bill Shaikin reports tonight. Still remaining, of course, is the bigger question of who will buy the team and how many hundreds of millions they pay to McCourt.
None of it will save this coming season, by the way. General manager Ned Colletti says the team is at its payroll for the 2012 season. That's unfortunate, because Colletti hasn't added a single impact player to last year's third-place team and the group on the field could be worse this season. Hiroki Kuroda also looks to be gone from the pitching staff.
