Nolan Ryan crew outbids Cuban, gets Rangers
« on: August 05, 2010, 05:57:09 AM »
I'm happy Nolan Ryan's group got the team.  He's done well with it in recent years.  But damn!  I wanted to see Mark Cuban with a MLB team!!



A group led by Nolan Ryan and Chuck Greenberg won a bankruptcy auction for ownership of the Rangers early Thursday morning.
The group went toe-to-toe with Mavericks owner and dot-com billionaire Mark Cuban for the suddenly successful club and won out in the end with a massive $385 cash bid. Cuban would have been a fun character in the baseball world, but Ryan has been an excellent leader since taking over front-office duties for Texas and his financial backers just put some serious faith in the franchise. If they back it up in payroll, the Rangers are going to have a great decade. Aug. 5 - 1:49 am et

I'm kinda glad that Nolan Ryan won the bid. Mark Cuban can keep his Mavs let Ryan keep his baseball team.
