Yesterday, I wrote how MLB is one step closer to forcing the sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers and that I was personally rooting for Mark Cuban to be the next owner.

Putting aside the fact that even if Cuban was interested, MLB probably wouldn’t let him buy any baseball team, Cuban came out yesterday and basically withdrew his name from consideration.

The primary reason he gave is because the Dodgers are such a mess and he’s not sure what would be included or not in the purchase. This is because Frank McCourt has divided the Dodgers into separate entities.

So, if Mark Cuban is on the fence about even attempting to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers because you don’t know if the parking lots and Dodger Stadium itself would be included in the purchase, would anyone else be interested?
