With ownership of the Dodgers set to change hands in 11 days, Commissioner Bud Selig said Thursday that Major League Baseball is working to learn more about the sale but is not trying to stop it. The U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved the sale last week, despite complaints from MLB attorney Thomas Lauria that the league had not gotten a fair opportunity to review the transaction. Attorneys from MLB and Guggenheim Baseball, the new ownership group fronted by Magic Johnson and incoming team President Stan Kasten, have met with a court-appointed mediator this week in an effort to resolve the league's concerns.

"House for Sale," a stage adaptation of Jonathan Franzen's essay, will make its off-Broadway debut Oct. 21 to Nov. 18 at the Duke on 42nd Street. In the piece, Franzen wrote about trying to sell his childhood home after his mother's death for a price she would find appropriate. Daniel Fish, who adapted the piece and will direct the show, said Franzen's essay will be presented on stage verbatim, although not entirely the way the National Book Award-winning novelist wrote it. The cast includes Rob Campbell, Christina Rouner, Lisa Joyce, Merritt Janson and Michael Rudko.

Old Man Marley's house from “Home Alone” has come on the market in Winnetka, Ill., at $3.1 million. The wood-shingled behemoth, with 6,863 square feet of living space, sits on about three-quarters of a snow-covered acre. Should one be pining for winter scenes, the listing should serve to transport, without actual sub-zero temperatures spoiling the effect. A billiards room provides a spot to while away the bitter months. The bay windowed breakfast room is lovely but brrrr - there are no curtains in the listing photo.

The deal: The 40 for 40 London Bridge Anniversary Special starts at $40 per person (based on double occupancy)
