The Los Angeles Dodgers, once a proud, storied franchise, now sit in the midst of the most troubling time in their long history. Not only are they a disappointing 9.5 games back from their division rival San Francisco Giants, but they must now face bankruptcy, largely thanks to their inability to pay their own players.

On Monday, the owner of the Dodgers, Frank McCourt, filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in a move that is both discouraging and desperate. In what is likely just a maneuver to prolong what looks to be the inevitable takeover of the team by commissioner Bud Selig, McCourt filing for bankruptcy is just another step in a long line of distractions this season.

However, with such a structural upheaval on the horizon, it may be naive for fans and gamblers alike to expect the Dodgers to play as though all is well.

It all started with McCourt's divorce nearly two years ago, in which he lost much of his net worth, and became instantly strapped for cash.

Since that time, he has been unable to pay many of his players, owing nearly 75 million dollars to current and former players. Some of the most notable on that list include Manny Ramirez, who is owed almost $21 million, Andruw Jones who is missing $11 million, and current starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda who still needs 4.4 million, all according to court documents.

With so much money missing, some current players may not see the light at the end of the tunnel, and that can only be bad for on-field performance.

When looking at ways to bet on MLB baseball online, a popular technique is to go with a hot pitcher or bat, or even an entire lineup. In this case, however, you should ride the Depressed Express, as these Dodgers players will likely lose hope amongst such dire times for the ball club.
