Who will make the final decision on the new owner, the bankruptcy court or the MLB owners? The highest bidder has not always won ownership of MLB teams. The owners have been known to pick and choose the owners to fit in to this exclusive club. The large number of bidders may indicate that the court may decide. You know that the owners will probably not pick Mark Cuban no matter what his bid. He does not fit into their club. (No Mavericks allowed) :lol: They have their hands full with Jerry Jones.
