If anyone finds out who are the 3 promising bidders were, please post here.

Selig has to be pissed that Zell, instead of going by the script, is actually doing it the capitalistic way.
I am sure Selig will try to find a way to get his butt buddy the proper financing. God forbid someone who can think for himself on baseball matters buys the team.

Isn't Zell going to retain 15% ownership because of the capital tax hit? I believe I read that somewhere, and the trail will lead to whoever he can get along with...jmho

I would assume one of the bids would be by the owner of the Chicago Wolves Dan Levin. I read an article a couple of years ago about him and he sounded like he would be a great owner.

He said there is no reason the Cubs have gone as long as they have without winning a championship. He said he would want to spend money but spend money wisely to help build a contender. I don't have a link to the article because it was written a couple years ago but he sounded like he would be a great owner.

I cringe when I hear that. It's very hard to spend money wisely nowadays without overpaying for talent. That's become the nature of the business. Can someone name a big-time free agent in the last three years that has actually lived up to his contract?

Not exactly sure when he signed, but Josh Beckett

He was traded for Hanley Ramirez.
