McCourts 'lawyered up,' talking divorce

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal has the most detailed take on the separation of Frank and Jamie McCourt, citing "multiple major league sources" saying the McCourts "are in the middle of divorce proceedings." Says Rosenthal:

The divorce will not be amicable, one source said.

"They've already 'lawyered' up," the source said. "They're trashing each other terribly. It's going to be World War III."

At stake: The future of the Dodgers, a team valued at $722 million by Forbes magazine. In May 2009, the couple's estimated net worth was $1.29 billion, according to the Los Angeles Business Journal.

The McCourts, married since 1979, are living in separate houses, sources say. They attended the Dodgers' recent postseason games, but did not sit together.

Um, maybe the marital questions have been raised on sports talk, but have the local sports media reported before tonight that the McCourts have not been seen together in a long time? If so I missed it.

Meanwhile:
The flu is sweeping the Dodgers, who resume play tomorrow.
