A ruling on the marital property agreement in the divorce trial of Frank and Jamie McCourt is expected Tuesday.

The most talked about signed agreement involving the Dodgers this side of the Juan Uribe deal could be the talk of the day tomorrow. A ruling on the martial property agreement is expected Tuesday in the McCourt divorce trial, writes Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times:

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon is expected to rule Tuesday on the validity of a marital agreement that would provide Frank McCourt with sole ownership of the Dodgers, according to multiple sources familiar with the case.

Keep in mind that, no matter the ruling tomorrow, the Dodger ownership situation will not be decided overnight. Whether Frank or Jamie wins, the other side is likely to appeal, which will drag the process on for at least several months. However, tomorrow's ruling is an important step in the future of McCourt ownership of the Dodgers.

If you ask me, tomorrow is the perfect time to pull off the old distraction transaction, like say, trading for a good Fielder.
