Dodgers "For A Long Time"
DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH: In Boston, Peter Abraham writes the extension adds "stability to an organization facing upheaval in the wake" of Frank McCourt separating from his wife, Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt, and "facing a battle for control of the club" (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/21). Baseball writer Murray Chass wrote the McCourts' divorce "will be bigger and more dramatic" than the divorce of Padres Majority Owner John Moores and his wife, Becky, which led to the sale of the Padres. A source said he has known "for a long time" that the McCourts' separation was coming, and added this is "going to be a messy divorce." The source said the situation is "nasty." The source added it is a "fair statement that [Frank McCourt] is the sole owner" of the Dodgers, but that "has nothing to do with what happens in court" (MURRAYCHASS.com, 10/18).
