Dodgers Sale 2012: L.A. Billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong Likely To Join Magic Johnson, Stan Kasten Group

As a new ownership group and the Los Angeles Dodgers continue to court amongst themselves, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman is reporting that Los Angeles billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong will likely join the group of Magic Johnson and Stan Kasten as possible suitors for the Boys in Blue:

They most definitely won't be alone at the negotiating table though, as upwards of 12 groups have come out of the woodwork as potential buyers of the Dodgers, including Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, sports ownership savant Stan Kroenke, former manager Joe Torre, and YES Network CEO Leo Hindery, just to name a few. This could get ugly.

I imagine the sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers going something along the line of an episode of 'Storage Wars.' A screaming frenzy of bidders, except billionaires will bid against millionaires and there will be a lot more zeros involved. Should be a good time.
