The other NL West divorce finally comes to an end

John and Becky Moores

Remember the other divorce involving the owner of an NL West team? That was the John Moores divorce, which prompted Moores to sell the San Diego Padres.  It was way, way less acrimonious (at least in public) than the McCourts’ divorce. There was never really any fight about the baseball team either, what with the Moores having been married since before there even was a San Diego Padres.  As far as gazillionaire divorces go, we heard relatively little about it.

And it just officially ended with a settlement agreement. After three years.  The McCourts have been at it a little over a year and their situation is, how shall we put it, a tad more complicated than that of the Moores.

Just throwing that out there in case anyone read yesterday’s L.A. Times story and still, inexplicably, had any hope that the Dodger Divorce would end any time soon.

    As an upright citizen, I wish no ill will on anyone…but as a Giants fan, this is great turmoil for my NL West opponents!

      Agreed. I don’t want, or like, to see anyone go through a divorce. But, as long as it’s going to happen anyway, I’ll enjoy the negative affect it has on the Dodgers.

    I don’t even want to read their nastiness – which McCourt is going to run the team?

      The one that hired a guy in Russia to watch games and pass good vibes through the TV to the Dodgers
