Mark Cuban Willing to Buy LA Dodgers Now?

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has flirted with the idea of purchasing LA’s troubled baseball squad for a number of years, but it sounds like he’s finally ready to give it some serious thought. From the Dallas Morning News: “Mavericks owner Mark Cuban apparently wasn’t joking around [Tuesday] when he told TMZ he’s willing to look at purchasing the financially troubled Los Angeles Dodgers. Cuban said [last night] via email that ‘if the deal is right for a team, I will look at it.’ During a visit to gossip-fest ‘TMZ Live’ on Tuesday, Cuban said that if the Dodgers are ‘fixable,” financially speaking, he would be ‘very interested.’ The Dodgers situation is an ongoing mess from which a new level of complications seem to arise daily.”

    @Riggs: I can already see Cuban seating in the dugout with coaches and players. This would be a good look for MLB, Bud Selig, and the Dodgers.

    Mark Cuban buying the LA Dodgers would be the best thing for Major League Baseball. They are one of few if not the only big market team on the west coast (San Francisco Giants?). MLB needs to draw attention to the game out there and not the kind that the McCourts are currently bringing. Cuban has the financial ability and maybe more importantly the charisma that will bring focus to the game and Los Angeles, which just happens to be one of the biggest markets in the nation ($$$). The team on the field is decent and has the talent to contend with a few tweaks. Just imagine the financial benefits the league would see from it! The MLB, in my eyes, has lost some of its appeal because all the teams that draw attention are on the east coast. Now is the time for Selig to put his reservations aside. Cuban has already saved a perennial loser like the Mavs and turned them into champions. Why not the Dodgers?
