Cuban's Chances of Getting Cubs Go from "Zero" to Something Less
As several readers have noted in the Comments, Mark Cuban has been charged with insider trading by the SEC "over his sale of shares in Internet company Mamma.com after he learned it was raising money through a private financing."
If any of the clowns who were already resolved to vote against Cuban's quest to buy the Cubs were looking for a pre-emptory "I told you so," I guess they have it.
Interesting point made last week by Jim Memolo on WGN Radio, who was reacting to that anonymous source who told the Sun-Times that Cuban had "zero chance" of getting a thumbs-up from Major League owners:
Here is a guy who, from all indications, would do everything he could as Cubs owner to ensure the team's success and thus, live up to the highest standards of competitive integrity, and MLB wants absolutely nothing to do with him. In San Diego, meanwhile, the fans and MLB are watching the Pads get stripped bare because the guy who owns the team is being sued for divorce.
