Cuban to Selig: "Ha!"

Despite being told he has "zero chance" of buying the Cubs, Mark Cuban knows that this is a game that won't be complete for many more moves:

"There's no reason to comment on anonymous comments from unsolicited sources. I mean it's ridiculous," Cuban said.

Cuban is in the running to purchase the team from the Tribune Co. after reportedly bidding more than $1 billion.

Others believed to be interested are a group headed by John Canning, chairman of private equity firm Madison Dearborn Partners LLC; and the family of online brokerage Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts.

"Nothing’s changed," Cuban said. "I mean it's a great opportunity."

Just remember that Bud Selig, and Jerry Reinsdorf, want John Canning to buy the Cubs because Canning has no interest in winning at all costs. And any owner that does not bid up salaries keeps salaries low for everyone. And that means higher profits.
