The Bids Are In

A source gave me the following information about who bid what for the Dodgers on a condition of anonymity:

  • Mark Cuban: $1.25 Billion
  • Magic Johnson/Stan Kasten: $950,000 in small unmarked bills, non-sequentially numbered
  • Steven Cohen/Arn Tellem:  $2 Billion in Cash
  • Joe Torre/Rick Caruso:  $1.12 Billion in Yankee Autographs
  • Ron Burkle:  $1 Billion
  • Stanley Gold/Disney family: $1.3 Billion and a lifetime pass to any Disney location
  • Peter O’Malley: $500 Million (“it’ more than I got”)
  • Tom Barrack: $1.15 Billion in VISA Cards
  • Steve Garvey/Orel Hershiser/Time Warner Cable – $1.6 Billion
  • Tony Ressler:  $1.19 Billion
  • Dennis Gilbert:  $1.2 Billion with an IOU from Bug Selig
  • Alan Casden: $1.45 Billion
  • Tom Golisano:  $980 Million
  • Fox & Fred Claire: $1.75 Billion
  • Joshua Macciello $2.5 Million in a postdated I.O.U.

There you have it:  Joshua Macciello will soon own the Dodgers, I guess.

All of the above is absolutely true, except for the stuff that isn’t… which is virturally all of it!

    LOL!!!

    Nice. I am wondering how soon credible leaks will start coming out. Also I do believe there will be cerain groups merging to form a stronger more viable option.

    •John Sickels of Minor League Ball put the Dodger farm system in the bottom 10 of the majors, while the Padres’ kids were first in the National League.
