Center fielder Matt Kemp #27 of the Los Angeles Dodgers warms up before the game with the Detroit Tigers on June 20, 2011 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. Are the stadium lights about to dim on Frank McCourt?

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig rejected a long-term TV deal, yesterday, that Dodger owner Frank McCourt proposed. That increases the chances that the cash-strapped McCourt won't be able to make the next Dodger payroll, due next week. Selig's decision also invalidates a settlement reached just last week between Frank and Jamie McCourt in their divorce case. Will the Dodgers soon be up for sale? Molly Knight of ESPN tells us who might be looking to buy the team, and how much the franchise is worth.
