Cuban to back Ryan-Greenburg group

Cuban said he was interested in bidding for Rangers, hopefully he will join Ryan and Greenburg. Thoughts?

if that happens then there is a much greater chance that the owners wont accept them as the winning bid since they already rejected Cuban on the Cubs, Cuban needs to stick to one team and make them great before trying anything else

eh....Baseball owners are going to avoid Cuban as much as possible. He is too radical for them to accept. This may not be a good idea for Ryan and Greenburg.

Mark Cuban expresses interest in Texas Rangers
SportingNews staff reports
8 hours, 1 minute ago

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has thrown his name into the mix as a potential bidder for the Texas Rangers, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.


Cuban would either join the group led by Nolan Ryan and Chuck Greenberg or join another group as a major investor.


"The economics have changed, which has gotten me interested," Cuban told the Star-Telegram via e-mail. "My lawyers are still going through everything, but the bigger point is that I now have an interest."


Added Cuban: "I think there is an opportunity to organize a bid for the team. Or if itís feasible or possibleóand I donít know for sure if it is or isnítóto work with Chuck and Nolan and their group. Iím not trying to push anyone off or out. Iím exploring."


In January, Greenberg and Ryan reached a deal to purchase the team from owner Tom Hicks. However, major lenders blocked the move, claiming there were higher bids than the one from Greenberg and Ryan. The fate of the franchise, which is in bankruptcy, remains in limbo with an auction one possibility to determine a new owner.


Cuban made an attempt to purchase the Cubs before the franchise eventually was sold to Tom Ricketts in January 2009


Sounds like he may be interested in more than just an investor role. If he becomes a major investor, does that pretty much mean he would be the majority share holder?

he probably has figured out that he has a better chance winning a championship in baseball instead of bassetball.

ESPN just reported that Cuban has been cleared to be a part of a bid with a group or as his own group leader. This may get interesting.
