Another day, another update in the saga of the court-ordered sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The list of potential buyers is down to the three finalists.
According to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, the list of bidders in the hunt was cut from five to three on Friday. The remaining groups are: the group led by billionaires Steven Cohen and Patrick Soon-Shiong, the group led by Magic Johnson and longtime baseball executive Stan Kasten and St. Louis Rams team owner Stan Kroenke.
MLB owners will vote on the three remaining bidders next week before final negotiations with Frank McCourt and investment bank representatives. It is possible that we will know the identity of the new team owners within the next week.
