That could be interesting because it seems like the offer is very serious because it is over the valuation done last year but you could say that the team is worth more now than last year. I am a Cubs fan and I would like this deal.
That would be sweet! But will the MLB ol boys clubs allow someone as outspoken as Cuban??
That will be a tough sale if they even get that far.
I don't think that the Trib will sell the Cubs, at least not to someone so bottom line focused as Cuban, who could possibly bring a World Series to the North Side. I mean when has the Trib ever cared about the actual Cub fans???
I went to game about 9 months ago at Wrigley and this rumor was flying around then.
This is what I was just going to post.
Take this with a grain of salt, guys. This has been rumored for a long time now and I think Cuban actually addressed it last year and said that he'd rather buy the Pirates if he were to buy an MLB team.
I'm pretty sure the only reason that the Cubs went out and spent a bunch of money to buy guys was just to raise the "value" of the team to a ridiculous level. Then, even if the Tribune did sell, they'd get a TON of money for them.
