He alleged that the company claimed falsely that he had endorsed a pain reliever called The Freedom Formula.

Unable to eliminate teams this season, Bud Selig sounded a familiar baseball cry Tuesday: Wait 'til next year! Stung by a streak of legal losses, the commissioner backed down from folding the Minnesota Twins and Montreal Expos this season but vowed to shrink the major leagues by 2003. The Minnesota Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear an appeal to lift the injunction forcing the Twins to honor their 2002 lease at the Metrodome. Owners voted Nov.

SAN FRANCISCO - When the Dodgers won the National League West title last week, Hanley Ramirez and Ricky Nolasco shared a champagne-soaked embrace. "Finally," Ramirez told Nolasco. "We're going to the playoffs. " Ramirez and Nolasco's previous seasons together all ended in disappointment. For six-plus years, they were teammates on the Marlins, who were crippled season after season by frugal owner Jeffrey Loria. BOX SCORE: San Francisco 6, Dodgers 4 Ramirez earned his escape from baseball purgatory last year, when the Marlins dumped his salary on the Dodgers.

This weekend's series between the Dodgers and the Miami Marlins matches last-place teams that took wildly divergent routes to the cellar. New Dodgers ownership splurged for a star-studded roster and the highest payroll in baseball - a $230-million collection of talent that has produced the worst record in the National League West. And yet the Dodgers, despite a 13-20 record before Friday, lead the major leagues in attendance. Meanwhile, after loading up on high-priced free agents to attract fans to his team's new ballpark in 2012, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria gutted his roster by season's end. The starless Marlins arrived at Dodger Stadium with a 10-25 record, the worst in the National League.

Buck Rodgers spent seven of the best summers of his life in Montreal, managing the local baseball team and enjoying the city, the people, the French accent on the culture. He speaks with conviction, but with a tone of sadness too. He reads about crowds better suited to a high school football game than a major league baseball game. The time has come, he says, for the Expos to go. "They've got to get out of Montreal," he said.

On deck in the Dodgers' bankruptcy case: the Florida Marlins? Could be, if Frank McCourt gets his way. As the bankruptcy proceedings increasingly resemble a grudge match cloaked in legal briefs, with Bud Selig threatening to banish the Dodgers from the league in order to rid it of McCourt, the Dodgers' owner might respond by trying to take down the commissioner. The Marlins could be in the collateral damage. In July, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross wrote of what he called "the underlying feud between the Commissioner and … Frank McCourt" and added: "It appears that their dispute will shortly be before the Court.

The Florida Marlins shook up their baseball operations Tuesday by hiring Marty Scott as vice president of player development to succeed Jim Fleming , who is being reassigned. Owner Jeffrey Loria expressed disappointment this season with the state of the Marlins' minor-league system. The team has had little draft success in recent years, especially in the first round. Scott, who has spent 34 years in professional baseball, was director of player development for the Texas Rangers from 1985 to 1994.

A cloud has hovered above the Florida Marlins for as long as they can remember, so dark days are nothing new to this seen-it-all bunch. Players said they have no choice except to try to focus on baseball rather than an uncertain future in the wake of their recent purchase and management purge. Such is life in the eye of the storm. "Obviously, there's always something happening around here," said right-hander Ryan Dempster, a 15-game winner last season. "But you get used to it.
