Mark Cuban Had Interest In Dodgers, Could Make Bid

10:05pm: A spokesman for McCourt told Shaikin that the Dodgers owner hasn't interacted with Cuban. "He doesn't know Mark Cuban. He hasn't spoken with Mark Cuban. He hasn't had anyone speak with Mark Cuban on his behalf" (Twitter link).

8:23pm: Mark Cuban has interest in buying the Dodgers, but not unless the team's price drops. The high-profile Dallas Mavericks owner says he offered to buy the Dodgers from owner Frank McCourt several months ago, according to Bill Shaikin of the LA Times. However, McCourt wanted $1-1.2 billion for the team, so Cuban held his cash.

"At that price, I wasn't interested," Cuban told Shaikin.

Cuban, who has bid on the Cubs and Rangers in the past, won't rule out buying the Dodgers if the price drops under $1 billion. McCourt and MLB are nearing an agreement on a bankruptcy settlement, according to Shaikin. Under the agreement, McCourt would sell the team, giving prospective owners a chance to purchase one of MLB's premier franchises.

Then he might want to move them to Dallas so it can have all 4 Major Sports Teams and yes Dallas does have a MLS team but doesn’t count but no WNBA Team yet.

isn’t arlington like 20 minutes from dallas?

From downtown to downtown, yes… from stadium to city line 11 miles, 95% highway.

Lets see here.  Dallas basically has the Stars, Rangers, Cowboys, and Mavericks.  Not quite following your comment.  Saying the Rangers aren’t in Dallas doesn’t really make sense either.

well technically the Cowboys aren’t in Dallas either.  Anyways, i didn’t quite get the comment either

Technically, the Cowboys haven’t been in Dallas since 1971, but don’t tell anyone that.

Cuban deserves to buy a team, he has bid on so many… the one that he finally buys will prosper, and thrive under Mark. Which ever team he buys will be under the right direction. Good luck mark! Wish u woulda bought my Cubbies

Okay then rename Texas Rangers to Texas Rangers of Dallas.

3 years 10 months ago

That would be an impressive move if he buys the DODGERS.

Sorry, the AL West has a rule that only allows for one team to change their name constantly, and that would be the LAAofA

Cuban and Jerry Jones are probably two of the best owners in all of sports. They helped make Dallas a major market

3 years 10 months ago

Now what has Jerry Jones done to make Dallas a major market?  The Cowboys were “America’s team” LONG before he ever came to town, and they haven’t been anything since Jimmy Johnson was fired.  If you ask people who live in Dallas, the 3rd superbowl win in the 90s was with Jimmy’s team.

I wonder if selig finally allows him to own a team with this being his last season. I mean come on. Selling allows a guy who is a potential war profiteer to buy the stros. Let’s McCourt who was cash poor and ruined a great franchise own a team. Allows the marlins owner to pocket cash and not use it to field a team. But mark Cuban who literally just want to win isnt ever allowed to own a team.

Dear Mark Cuban, please buy the Atlanta Braves.

Thanks.

3 years 10 months ago

Posted 6 months ago that Cuban would buy the Dodgers. MLB needs to revive interest in LA, what better way than Cuban. Owners will swallow hard and vote him in.

Looks good on paper, nice and saucy, but comes with heart burn and in the end always comes back to bite you in the rear.

If he put up 900 million I’m sure LA fans would gladly give their WIC, Welfare, unempoyment, and or drug money/checks to make up for the other 100…. I can say that, I’m from LA!

so basically use the governments money to buy the team smh

BruinPirateAnteater

In all fairness, WIC is not the government’s money :)

3 years 10 months ago

WIC is federal assistance… that means it’s the government’s money

My bad, you’re right. I always thought WIC was a program funded by the catholic church

MLB, lets get this deal done! Just in time for the Winter meetings and just in time to sign Prince and extend Kemp and Kershaw!!!! Dump Ethier if you need the cash Cuban. We can keep Loney, resign Barrajas and Gwynn and let T.Gwynn, Rivera and Sands battle it out for a starting OF job and let the other two play backup!

3 years 10 months ago

LOL, the sale of the Astros hasn’t even been finalized, but somehow the bankruptcy sale of the Dodgers with no clear bidders is going to get wrapped up in time for winter meetings?

Well, he either missed a period in an ellipsis or added a second period by accident, but for a Giants fan, pretty good.
