The Red Sox and Dodgers complete a huge blockbuster deal, with Boston getting rid of $260 million in future salary by sending 1B Adrian Gonzalez, P Josh Beckett, OF Carl Crawford and IF Nick Punto to Los Angeles. In return, they receive 1B James Loney and four prospects: Ps Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster, IF Ivan DeJesus and OF/1B Jerry Sands.

Commissioner Bud Selig steps in and takes control of the day-to-day operations of the Los Angeles Dodgers from owner Frank McCourt

Commissioner Bud Selig steps in and takes control of the day-to-day operations of the Los Angeles Dodgers from owner Frank McCourt, who is tangled in a messy divorce with his wife Jamie. “I have taken this action because of my deep concerns regarding the finances and operations of the Dodgers and to protect the best interests of the club, its great fans and all of Major League Baseball,” Selig says in a statement. For his part, McCourt states he is planning to sue MLB, but instead, he will be forced to sell the club as part of his divorce settlement. Los Angeles was facing substantial debt payments, which the owner plans to meet by using funding from the club’s new $2.5 billion, 20-year media-rights deal with Fox Sports, but the Commissioner has withheld his approval of the agreement between the News Corp.’s media company and the team.
