07:49 AM ET 07.16 | MLB's quietest day didn't go without news from the courtroom. Wednesday was a dead day on the field in baseball, but it was a busy day in the ongoing divorce saga that has crippled the Dodgers. ESPN.com posted an article from the forthcoming issue of the Worldwide Leader's magazine detailing just about everything you'd ever want to know about Frank and Jamie McCourt, including the fact that the team has spent less money on the draft and international scouting than anybody else, while the Los Angeles judge overseeing the divorce case suggested that the couple sell the team to settle their squabbles about who gets control of it.

I don't get the connection. Does Rupert have a sports team in his empire somewhere? Or perhaps a messy divorce in his past? I don't follow Murdoch that closely...

He and Fox News Corp owned the Dodgers before the McCourts.

If they don't resolve this soon, they are going to kill this team for years to come. As a Giants fan, I hope they drag it out.

Actually having her as part of an ownership group wouldn't be that far of a reach as celebrities have been done so for baseball teams in the past. Danny Kaye was one of the original owners of the Seattle Mariners, while Bill Murray is part of the group that own several minor league teams such as the independent St. Paul Saints.
