Found November 30, 2011 on Big League Stew:
The last time she checked, Chantel Kendall said, Major League Baseball players had an "85 percent" divorce rate. Her own bitter divorce to Jason Kendall — a major league catcher for 16 seasons, most recently with the Kansas City Royals — was finalized this past fall.

They've finished above .500 just once in the last 17 years (2003, when the team finished 83-79), they've dealt away stars like Carlos Beltran and Jermaine Dye for far below market value, and they've handed playing time to some of the worst players you can imagine in baseball. But the team went on a full...
