    This would be good for the Cubs, Cuban is nothing if not motivated to win.

    What he's turned the Mavs into is amazing.

    Re: Cuban to buy Cubs??!!

    That could be interesting because it seems like the offer is very serious because it is over the valuation done last year but you could say that the team is worth more now than last year. I am a Cubs fan and I would like this deal.

    Forbes estimates team worth as $448 million and Cuban is reportedly set to offer $625 mil. Guess he really wants it!

    That would be sweet! But will the MLB ol boys clubs allow someone as outspoken as Cuban??

    That would be friggin' sweet! If the job he's done in Dallas is any inclination of how much effort he would put in for the Cubs, then it would be a great deal team. Go Cubs!

    That will be a tough sale if they even get that far.

    I don't think that the Trib will sell the Cubs, at least not to someone so bottom line focused as Cuban, who could possibly bring a World Series to the North Side. I mean when has the Trib ever cared about the actual Cub fans???

    I think we should at least give him sometype of title. We need the big doners. With his drive I'm sure he would get along great with JP. Both want titles, and he would help us with major media.

    I went to game about 9 months ago at Wrigley and this rumor was flying around then.

    This is what I was just going to post.

    Take this with a grain of salt, guys. This has been rumored for a long time now and I think Cuban actually addressed it last year and said that he'd rather buy the Pirates if he were to buy an MLB team.

    Re: Cuban to buy Cubs??!!

    I'm pretty sure the only reason that the Cubs went out and spent a bunch of money to buy guys was just to raise the "value" of the team to a ridiculous level. Then, even if the Tribune did sell, they'd get a TON of money for them.

    I heard he's also going to change the name to the Chicago Cubans. The mascot will change to a cigar in a blue dress

    Imagine how awkward it'd be then if the team were to someday have all Cubans playing...
