LA Dodgers Problems, is Mark Cuban the Answer?

 With the Dodgers and owner Frank McCourt filing for bankruptcy on Monday, I think its safe to say that the Dodgers have hit rock bottom. With the Dodgers looking like they are going to be up for sale sooner rather than later, the question instantly goes to, who? My first instinct (as probably many others) went directly to Mark Cuban. 

Fresh off his first NBA Championship and probably his most quite post season I think that Cuban is the answer for a team that has been through hell and back in the past couple of years between the divorce and some really bad signings that didn't help them. I think that the Dodgers have to sell sooner rather than later because this is all just hurting the organization and they are losing money and interest of their fans. The Dodgers were averaging 43,979 last season and they are already down to 36,074 per game now. This isn't Cuban's first rodeo in that department as when he bought the Mavs in 2000 their attendance averaged just about 16,500 per game and in the next season it jumped up to and average of 19,500 per game. This guy will put people in their seats and will make this team (or any MLB team) very competitive in the near future. 

The question is, why doesn't the MLB or any MLB team want him? I can't answer that. I guess maybe he is a loud mouth and likes to be hands on with his team. Since when is that a bad thing?

All I can say that if I was a Pittsburgh or another small market team I would give just about anything to bring this guy in. He will spend money and pay for big name players to try and bring wins and championships to your city. If you are LA, doesn't that sound a lot better than what the hell is going on there now?

I think so.
