Rangers to pick a new owner December 15th

Dec 7, 2009, 11:25 AM EDT

I had heard that the new Rangers owner was going to be announced last week, but apparently Tom Hicks’ little falling out with Dennis Gilbert complicated things.  Now Tracy Ringolsby is reporting that Hicks will announce who will take over the club he and his copious amounts of debt have damn nigh ruined by December 15th.

Gilbert is reportedly still in the running, because even if he and Hicks are fighting, his money is green too.  Also in the running is Pittsburgh lawyer Chuck Greenberg, who has Nolan Ryan in his proposed ownership group.

    Amazing how fast both this and the Padres sales have gone, compared to the epic length of the Cubs sales. Personal bankruptcy causes a lot speedier moves than corporate bankruptcy. Maybe that’s a good sign for the seemingly inevitable Dodgers sale?
