Cuban should absolutely buy the Cubs

Cuban in the mix for Cubs, but does MLB want him? | Chicago Tribune

I actually think the fact that it would honk of both Bud Selig AND Jerry Reinsdorf is the strongest argument you could possibly make for why Mark Cuban should be allowed to buy the Cubs from the Tribune. If Selig is as strongly against the idea as Morrisey makes it sound it must be something that’s good for baseball.

And shouldn’t MLB’s primary considerations be making money for the league, for the rest of the owners, increasing attendance and encouraging the fielding of competitive teams? Decisions like this shouldn’t be made based on whether Cuban or anyone else is going to fit in in the old boys network of owners.
