The article discusses Major League Baseball's (MLB) takeover of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team from owner Frank McCourt following his divorce from his wife Jamie, as well as MLB's alleged unjust antitrust exemption as of September 2012. The author argues that McCourt could have challenged the anti-competitive takeover practices of MLB and its commissioner Bud Selig since McCourt's attempt to broker a television deal with Fox Sports did not break any of MLB's rules.
