Yeesh. That's a lot of money, but then again, Jamie McCourt originally wanted $988,845 a month. The decision by L.A. County Superior Court commissioner Scott Gordon based mainly upon costs associated with seven properties the Dodger owner-couple bought, according to the LA Times. An eighth one in Mexico should be sold, the commissioner said. The drama isn't over yet, though, as to who owns the baseball club -- just Frank McCourt or the couple? That will have major consequences on the divorce and will go to trial in August.
