Mark Cuban's Bid To Buy Rangers Fails; Why Not Buy The Royals?

New, 4 comments

Rumors have floated around Kansas City in recent weeks (albeit completely unconfirmed) that Royals owner David Glass has entertained the idea of selling the team.

↵

For Royals fans, this brought tears of joy. Many do not want Glass to own the team any longer because of a perception that he's cheap.

Meanwhile, Mark Cuban, owner of the NBA's Mavericks, bid on the Texas Rangers and was beat out by another group.

↵

The question coming up in Kansas City is: Would Mark Cuban buy the Royals?

↵

This would be the best thing to happen to the team. Cuban has shown a willingness to spend the money necessary to win and money is more important in baseball than any of the other sports (which have salary caps).

The chances of it happening are probably minuscule but it's worth dreaming about.
