cuban looking into buying Rangers
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said Friday that he is investigating the possibility of buying the Rangers, or perhaps joining another group in the bidding process.
Cuban’s interest has been sparked, apparently, after several recent rulings in the case lowered the debt that might be included from the sale by Rangers owner Tom Hicks.
The Rangers have been for sale for months as Hicks has been embroiled with creditors. Rangers president Nolan Ryan and Pittsburgh businessman Chuck Greenberg have submitted a bid to buy the team.
Cuban said he was intent on retaining Ryan in any ownership scenario. nesota Twins placed slugger Justin Morneau, who suffered a concussion, on the 15-day disabled list.
“We’re not going to take any chances,” manager Ron Gardenhire said.
Morneau was accidentally kneed in the head in Toronto by second baseman John McDonald while trying to break up a double play last week.
