(Best Syndication News) - The Los Angeles Dodgers have filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, which will allow the baseball team owners to deal with immediate finances. In a statement, Dodger owner, Frank McCourt, mentioned Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig as the reason the team had to file for chapter 11.

Selig did not approve a media transaction between the Los Angeles Dodgers and FOX network, which was a multibillion-dollar media rights transaction. If the MLB Commissioner approved of this, the Dodgers would have had access to hundreds of millions of dollars. The office of the MLB Commissioner rejected the proposed deal. The Dodgers have been trying for almost a year to get Selig to approve the media deal.
