Mark Cuban: "No Call From Mets"

Mark Cuban told Newsday on Monday that several investment groups interested in buying the New York Mets have reached out to him in recent days, but he’s still waiting for the only call that matters to him.

But he said he wasn’t interested in joining forces with any of them, at least not until he hears from the Mets that they’re interested in pursuing a partnership with him.

And the Mets, he said, haven’t called.

Last week, the Dallas Mavericks owner seemed intrigued by the prospect of owning the Mets, describing them as “a great franchise in a great city” and calling it “a great opportunity.” But Cuban said he was finished with pursuing major-league teams after failed bids to buy the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers in recent years.

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."
