There are three bidders remaining to become the new owners for the Dodgers. The remaining groups are: (1) the group led by billionaires Steven Cohen and Patrick Soon-Shiong; (2) the group led by Magic Johnson and longtime baseball executive Stan Kasten; and (3) St. Louis Rams team owner Stan Kroenke. Now they will be the last three standing to try and obtain ownership of the team.
