Seattle Mariner Outfielder Stabbed To Death

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadBaseball

Greg Halman

Ugh! This is awful!

Shortly after one international Major League Baseball player was rescued from a dangerous kidnapping experience in Venezuela, a Dutch player lost his life in the Netherlands.

Greg Halman, a Seattle Mariner outfielder with two seasons on the team under his belt, was stabbed to death on Monday.

Police arrested his 22-year-old brother whom they believe may be responsible, telling sources:

"He is under arrest and right now he is being questioned. It will take some time to figure out what exactly happened."

Such a shame! Our hearts go out to the Seattle Mariners and the Halman family as they deal with their unfortunate loss.

Dodgers Accuse FOX Of Illegally Interfering With Sale Of Team

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersBaseball

LA FOX Logos

The Los Angeles Dodgers are accusing Fox Sports of illegally attempting to interfere with the sale of the bankrupt team and all of its assets, including media rights.

The team filed the complaint in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware on Wednesday, alleging that Fox sent a "cease and desist" letter to the Dodgers' financial adviser who was soliciting bids for TV rights to Dodgers games.

Fox is firing back because they hold a contract to televise Dodgers games through 2013 and believe the deal gives the network exclusive negotiating rights through Nov. 30, 2012. In the cease and desist letter, an attorney for Fox wrote:

"Allowing others to bid or express interest in the media rights for the Dodgers is a clear breach of the letter and spirit of the exclusive negotiation term."

The Dodgers, who are hoping to find a buyer by April 30th of 2012, have filed a motion for the court to allow them to market media rights for 2014 and beyond, writing to the judge:

"[By] obtaining firm offers, LAD can demonstrate to buyers the substantial value of the post-2013 telecast rights…LAD has determined in the exercise of its business judgment that marketing the post-2013 telecast Rights at this time will further the interests of LAD, as well as its creditors."

A spokesman for Fox has called this move by the Dodgers "the latest chapter in the current owner's ongoing scheme to avoid honoring his contractual obligations."

Frank McCourt Agrees To Sell The Dodgers To The Highest Bidder

Filed under: Legal MattersBaseball

Frank McCourt selling team

Frank McCourt's Dodgers dilemma is beginning to come to an end, but probably not in the way he wanted.

After fighting with the MLB and bankruptcy courts to retain the team he purchased in 2004, the owner has decided to sell the team.

According to a joint statement on behalf of the team and league issued on Tuesday night:

"The Los Angeles Dodgers and Major League Baseball announced that they have agreed today to a court-supervised process to sell the team and its attendant media rights in a manner designed to realize maximum value for the Dodgers and their owner, Frank McCourt. The Blackstone Group LP will manage the sale process."

That maximum value could be two or three times the $421 million McCourt originally spent for the team.

He's not making out too bad!

Then again, sources say McCourt will need the team to sell for at least $1 billion in order to break even after paying off debts, taxes, and of course, his wife's $130 million divorce settlement!

Baseball is crossing their bats that a new owner will be in place by next seasons opening day. Good luck!

A-Rod's Cameron Diaz Clone Is A "Good Fit" For Him

Filed under: Love LineCameron DiazAlex RodriguezFitness

Ella Magers

That blonde that was spotted with A-Rod yesterday, the one that looks like a clone of Cameron Diaz, has a name apparently. And also she's a good fit for him.

Her name is Ella Magers, and she's a fitness trainer and nutritionist. Also, a life coach skilled in counseling.

According to a source though, they're not dating or something. Sounds like denial to us, but hey, it's up to them if they want to confirm:

Los Angeles Dodger Matt Kemp Displays His Major League HAWTness!

Filed under: RihannaBaseball

Matt Kemp

Oo la la! RiRi tapped that!

The Dodgers may not have clinched a spot in the playoffs this year, but Matt Kemp just clinched a spot in our heart with these steamy photos!

The outfielder from Oklahoma posed for Flaunt Magazine where he opened up about his El Lay lifestyle.

Despite his modest midwestern upbringing, Kemp has become quite the fashionista, saying:

"In the past year-and-a-half, two years, I got into being around fashionable people. I started to enjoy the things that other people I was around enjoyed like clothes and shoes. It’s fun. I think it’s fun to go into a store and try to figure out what to put with some shoes or your outfit or whatever, and rock it."

He compares his recently awakened fashion sense to that of a chameleon, continuing:

“I’m like a chameleon, man. I can switch it up. I can one day be wearing some Jordans or nice retro sportswear with some jeans, a shirt, and a hat, and make that look nice. And then I can wear a collared shirt with some RRL jeans.”

We wonder if his famous former girlfriend Rihanna had any influence on his style! The couple ended their year long relationship last December, which fits nicely into his personal fashion timeline.

If any ladies ever get the chance to meet this Major League hottie and want a chance to score a date, here's what he's looking for:

"I like confident people. I like positive people. Somebody that can make me a better person. Somebody that makes me want to be a better person. Smart. Pretty, of course. Somebody that is close with their family and loves their family just as much as I love my family. Somebody that knows how to dress. It just boils down to being confident and being comfortable in your own skin and the person that you are.”

Don't forget your most fashionable shoes at home either! He appreciates female footwear almost as much as he does their confidence, explaining:

"I love looking and seeing what kind of shoes women wear. I think that tells me if a person knows what they’re doing. To me, shoes are…If I like your shoes, and you’re pretty, that’s a good quality.”

Good looks paired with nice shoes? Sounds like this guy's got a lot of options in El Lay! Ha!

If you like what you see above, the you'll definitely like what you see below. Check out the rest of the Matt Kemp pics from Flaunt Magazine!

Dodgers' Season Ticket Holders File Motion To Protect Their Interests

Filed under: Legal MattersBaseball

Dodgers logo

As you may know by now, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been experiencing some financial difficulty and owner Frank McCourt was forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this past summer.

Now the team's faithful followers have filed a motion of their own to protect their interests as McCourt struggles through court proceedings to save his team.

Season ticket holders have filed court documents with the bankruptcy court in Delaware to establish a formal committee of more than 17,000 season ticket holders.

Since some have poured up to $150,000 a year into the team, their goal is to make sure Dodger funds are being used for what they consider the most important part of the "fan experience".

Basically, they want to make sure any money McCourt gets is used appropriately, for instance, to acquire new players, meet payroll, renovate the stadium, and operate concessions.

After a Giants fan suffered a brutal beating outside the stadium, the documents emphasize the need for increased security.

Sources report that if the motion is approved, they may have a voice in future decisions about the team.
