Dodgers Owners Separate

According to a public statement issued by the couple, Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and his wife Jamie, the team’s chief executive, have separated.

Though they have separated, there is no word on whether they will divorce. So, we won’t know if there could be another San Diego Padres situation, where the team has to be sold.

Strange timing — couldn’t they have waited to make this announcement until after the postseason? One must wonder if the news will be a distraction to the Dodgers ballplayers as they head into the NLCS vs. the Phillies.

Though, who knows — it may take some of the spotlight and pressure OFF the team on the field.

If nothing else, it’s nice to know there are baseball soap operas playing outside of Flushing.
