The worst trade in the 50 years that the Dodgers have been in Los Angeles? From casual fans to dedicated seamheads, no prompting is needed. The 1993 trade that sent Pedro Martinez to Montreal for Delino DeShields continues to produce the loudest moans, with obvious justification.

Sat down with the Screaming Meanie on Tuesday morning, and how about that, even cutting into Jamie McCourt's negotiated swimming time. Until now she hasn't said anything publicly since being fired by her husband as Dodgers CEO, being labeled an adulterer in the process and pounded in court filings. "I've been creamed," is the way she put it. "But I've decided I'm going to take the high road." California is a no-fault state when it comes to divorce, and since she was described as an "at will" hire by Frank McCourt in a letter terminating her services as the team's CEO, there was no apparent need in either case to detail any alleged wrongdoings.

Frank McCourt took a $30-million loan from Fox to meet the Dodgers' payroll obligations last week, according to three people briefed on the arrangement. The money is expected to cover the Dodgers' expenses into next month. Commissioner Bud Selig has yet to say whether he will approve a proposed television contract between Fox and the Dodgers, which McCourt has presented as a long-term solution to the team's financial troubles. Offensive woes might force Dodgers to bring up Jerry Sands The loan marks the second time since the end of last season that Fox has provided money to the Dodgers owner so he could cover expenses.

PHOENIX -- Jamey Wright was officially added to the 40-man roster on Tuesday, clearing the way for him to make the Dodgers' opening-day roster as a reliever. The Dodgers cleared a place for him on the 40-man roster by moving Blake Hawksworth to the 60-day disabled list. Wright, who came into camp on a minor-league contract, said the previous day that General Manager Ned Colletti told him he would make the opening-day roster. He will draw a base salary of $900,000. Wright can earn an additional $500,000 in incentives: $62,500 for 40 games pitched, $62,500 for 45 games pitched, $75,000 for 50 games pitched, $100,000 for 55 games pitched, $100,000 for 60 games pitched and $100,000 for 65 games pitched.

SAN DIEGO - Still sick with a stomach flu that cut short his opening-day start, Clayton Kershaw said he was “pretty sure” he would be able to pitch in the Dodgers' home opener Tuesday. “We'll see,” Kershaw said. Kershaw reported a minor improvement in his condition. He pitched three scoreless innings Thursday in the Dodgers' 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres. “I felt pretty bad,” he said. “I know I needed to try to get out there. After that third inning, I started getting dizzy and lightheaded and stuff, so I really couldn't do it anymore.” Upon exiting the game, Kershaw tried to return to the team hotel across the street from Petco Park but was too weak to do so. He said he threw up in the eighth inning.

- Jackie Robinson's daughter said Saturday she has agreed to join the Dodgers' board of directors, strengthening the bond between the team and its most historically significant alumnus. Sharon Robinson said she would represent her family and the Jackie Robinson Foundation on the Dodgers' board. In return, she said, the Dodgers' new owners would select a representative to serve on the board of the Jackie Robinson Foundation. Sharon Robinson appeared at Yankee Stadium last April 15, on the anniversary of the day her father broke the major league color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
