With the fight for ownership of the Dodgers expected to hit the courts this week, the commissioner's office is monitoring the proceedings but expecting little effect on the daily operations of the club. Frank McCourt, who asserts he is the sole owner of the Dodgers, fired his estranged wife Jamie as the team's chief executive Wednesday. Jamie McCourt, who claims she is a co-owner of the team, is expected to respond by initiating legal proceedings this week. "Obviously, there's a disruption there," said Bob DuPuy, president and chief operating officer of Major League Baseball.

On the day the Angels re-signed Bobby Abreu to a multiyear deal, the future of the Dodgers started to take shape on the eighth floor of the Los Angeles Superior Court building. Slowly. While Jamie McCourt was denied her request to be immediately reinstated as the Dodgers' chief executive in an emergency hearing Thursday, the more important issue of whether she is a co-owner of the storied franchise along with soon-to-be ex-husband Frank McCourt did not become any clearer -- and probably won't be for some time.

Spring training never looked like this. At least not for the Dodgers. Pyrotechnics were set off in the outfield. Jordin Sparks sang the national anthem. Fighter jets flew over the stadium. The Dodgers and Chicago White Sox faced each other Sunday in the grand opening of the new spring training stadium they share, with the White Sox claiming a 3-2 victory at Camelback Ranch by scoring three runs in the top of the ninth inning.

Welcome to Dodger Stadium! Come see the pitchers warm up in the Red Bull Bullpen. Sit in the Bicycle Playing Cards top deck! Leave your car in the Hertz garage for preferred parking, or the Avis lot, where they try harder to find you a spot. Dodger Stadium will still be called Dodger Stadium in the years ahead, but much of the rest of the place is now available to be renamed -- for a price -- by corporate sponsors willing to add their brands to familiar features of Chavez Ravine.

In the L.A. housing market, "gangnam style" appears to translate into "traditional condominium. " Psy , the South Korean musician and dancing phenomenon of "Gangnam Style" video fame, and his own "sexy lady," wife Hye-yeon Yoo , have bought a place in a 1989 building in Westwood for $1.249 million. The Blair House condo features city views, high ceilings, a den, a balcony, two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The contemporary complex offers a saltwater swimming pool, a tennis court, a gym, a doorman and concierge services.

I haven't seen the books. I don't know the budget. But I recognize the silence. While other teams noisily scrambled through an Indianapolis hotel this week in hopes of improving themselves, the Dodgers were in an entirely different race. The Indy 000. No talk about improving the team through high-priced free agency or expensive trades. No talk about improving the ballpark through needed renovations. And, most ominous of all, no Randy Wolf or compensation for losing him. The only move they made at baseball's winter meetings was to stick their general manager in neutral, announcing that Ned Colletti will be the first Dodgers baseball boss in Los Angeles Dodgers history to report to the money guy -- President Dennis Mannion -- instead of directly to the main guy, the owner.

The Manny Era came to an official end Monday, when the Dodgers let him go to the Chicago White Sox on a waiver claim without receiving anything more than salary relief. "It's kind of sad to see this time come and go," Andre Ethier said in a silent clubhouse where Latin music could no longer be heard from the far end. The party ended long ago, probably around the time Ramirez was suspended last year for violating baseball's drug policy. The final days were particularly heavy-hearted ones for Ramirez, sources describing him as being upset that he was benched Friday and Saturday in Colorado.

Frank McCourt took the witness stand in his divorce trial Tuesday, a day on which the most riveting testimony shed light on the collapse of a marriage that lasted nearly 30 years. McCourt considered for months whether to sign a document that would have granted shared ownership of the Dodgers to his wife, Jamie. He said no on May 12, 2009, and later that day Jamie sent an e-mail to Leah Bishop, the attorney who had drafted the proposed document. Bishop's response: "You have only two tools at your disposal — a civil conversation with Frank or a nuclear bomb.

I have a list of questions for Dodgers fans, which I will get to in a moment. Last week Frank McCourt fired Dennis Mannion , the guy who has been running the Dodgers for the past year while McCourt has been in hiding. He also dismissed two secretaries, and because McCourt isn't talking, I can only assume they were deemed responsible for putting the team's poor bullpen together. The Dodgers announced McCourt "will resume a more direct and active role in managing the organization.

The Dodgers are the talk of the World Series, and not because of Matt Kemp. The buzz is about all those titillating details in the his-and-hers McCourt divorce filings, about how Frank fired his wife and branded her with a scarlet letter, about how the annual expenses Jamie claims she needs to maintain the lifestyle of a baseball owner are greater than the combined salaries of Kemp, James Loney, Clayton Kershaw, Jonathan Broxton and Chad Billingsley....
