Mark Cuban Won't Chase Mets


According to ESPN's Ian Begley, Mark Cuban does have interest in ownership of a MLB team but does not want to be used as bait for a higher potential offer in the bidding war of the Mets. "If they want to contact me, if they have an interest and they think I'd be a good owner, I'd take their call and I'd be more than happy to discuss it," Cuban said Wednesday night before the Knicks-Mavericks game. "But I'm done chasing and bidding on baseball teams." Cuban the owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, had previously bid on ownership of the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers. Both of whom he lost to other ownership groups. Any sale would be limited to a 20-25% stake in the team and not SportsNet New York or Citi Field. "It's a great franchise in a great market. So I'm sure there's going to be a whole lot of interest. But I'm not going to, whether it's here or the Dodgers for that matter, I'm not going to put myself in a bidding situation. I did that twice and learned my lesson."
