The LA Dodgers are not up for sale, but Mark Cuban has made it known that he would be interested in buying a controlling interest in the current National League Western Division champs.
I got to give Mark credit for saying something while saying nothing in the email which the LA Times quoted saying:
“If a unique situation came up where I could contribute capital to buy out a majority shareholder and gain control, with existing shareholders or note holders staying in place, I would consider it.” (yahoo)
If. Big word here. Could be Mr. Cuban is expecting the divorce between current owner Frank McCourt and his wife Jamie to be a little dirty? How magnanimous of you trying to help another filthy rich guy out by taking advantage of an unpleasant domestic situation.
No sense in letting emotions get in the way of business though, right? Plus, Mark and Manny would make for some rather interesting headlines if you ask me!
