With the stadium and territorial rights issues faced by the Oakland Athletics, it was thought that current A's owner Lew Wolff would have interest in purchasing the Los Angeles Dodgers. Wolff lives in the Los Angeles area, and it made sense that a firmly entrenched franchise such as the Dodgers might have appealed to him. Today, though, Wolff denied any interest in owning any team other than the A's. From Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times:
Although Bud Selig's takeover of the Dodgers on Wednesday could lead to a sale, Oakland Athletics owner Lew Wolff said Thursday he would not be a buyer.
"I'm not interested in the Dodgers," Wolff said.
According to the Times, a list other potential buyers could still include Mark Attanasio, current owner of the Brewers -- though he shot that rumor down today -- and current White Sox executive Dennis Gilbert, who led an effort to buy the Texas Rangers last year.
The article also lists Mark Cuban as a potential bidder, though it seems as if MLB would rather approve Frank McCourt with an alias and a fake mustache to buy a team before they approved Cuban.
