Last month Mark Cuban said that he wouldn’t be interested in buying the Dodgers if the price was above one billion bucks. Most people are suggesting that the price will, in fact, be above a billion bucks. But guess what: according to the L.A. Times, Cuban is going to get involved anyway.
It’s way too early to know if he’s going to be a serious bidder. He’s dipped his feet in before, first with the Cubs and then with the Rangers. Contrary to his reputation as some sort of mad billionaire, he seems to be kind of reluctant to go crazy with this kind on investment. He wants partners involved and security and value. It’s unclear whether the Dodgers are really going to represent that kind of opportunity. Indeed, one wonders if he just gets involved here so he can get a look at team financials so that he’s better educated one day when he goes after a team he really wants.
But hey, Mark Cuban. He’s fun.
