Frank McCourt might have to become business partners with his ex-wife in order to keep the Dodgers in the family, her attorneys said Tuesday. With the Dodgers set to report to spring training in three weeks, the legal battle to determine who owns the team is about to envelop a second season.

"That is not to say she is going to appear on the first day of the season and say, 'I'm here; I'm firing people,' " her attorney Dennis Wasser said.

Stepping to the imaginary plate, he raises his right hand to his invisible helmet and then tugs gently--almost daintily--at the front of his shirt as he settles into his batting stance.
