Oh for gods sake, when did this site become Sports Entertainment Tonight? (I realise my pun.)

The McCourt's divorce could require the division of marital assets and result in the sale of the Dodgers. The story's on Sports Illustrated and dozens of other media sites. I don't know what your beef is.

The sad part for the Dodgers is that she probably knew more about baseball and running a team than he did. Watching him sit there listening to mush-mouth Tommy Lasagna, rather than his own GM, makes me wonder if the team might be better off with a new owner anyway. Then again, maybe not. Just ask Padres fans how that all went.

It constantly amazes me how some rich people find ways to piss away everything they have. Good luck in (Mc) court, Frank........

It's too bad McCourt wasn't able to buy the Red Sox like he wanted. I'm sure this would have been treated with the utmost decency in the Boston papers.
