MARK CUBAN IS HIGH BIDDER FOR THE TEXAS RANGERS

MARK CUBAN

Despite the fact that he is despised by the sport’s upper management, colorful basketball owner Mark Cuban of the Dallas Mavericks is trying like hell to get a Major League Baseball team. Bloomberg.com details how Cuban was the high bidder for the bankrupt Texas Rangers.

MLB is scared to death that Rangers creditors may favor the high profile, big-spending Cuban over a group headed by nice-guy but not rich pitching legend Nolan Ryan. Cuban’s lawyers are crying “collusion” over the fact that MLB is refusing an auction for the team. Cuban is teaming up with Houston businessman Jim Crane to buy the club.¬†Cuban feels if it were left to competitive bidding he would end up with the team.

* Update: After an extended night of bidding that included “profane exchanges” between the two bidding factions, the Nolan Ryan/Chuck Greenberg ownership group won the auction for the bankrupt Rangers.
