Bill Shaikin writes of another interested bidder in the Los Angeles Dodgers: Leo Hindery. His significance? He was the founder of YES Network and his presence in the bidding suggests that a Dodgers cable network could be in the works. Which, as we know, means serious money for the team to which it is attached.
Which, in turn, could shoot the bidding price for the team way, way up. Shaikin:
However, his involvement could trigger a surge of media interest that could lift the Dodgers’ sales price. That could make it more likely that McCourt gets a figure in the range of $1.5 billion to $2 billion, rather than in the range of $1 billion to $1.5 billion.
I’m gonna go sit in a corner and try not to be angry that the man who ran that team into the freaking ground and then burdened it and himself in debt may walk away from it all an even more obscenely rich man than he was when he bought it in the first place.
Not working. Hurm. Oh well, I can at least re-read this article in which a former Dodgers owner calls McCourt a very bad man. That made me feel better for a few minutes.
