Imagine getting into a bidding war with Mark Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks' owner.
Chuck Greenberg, the State College Spikes owner, and Nolan Ryan found themselves in one but prevailed and are now the owners of the Texas Rangers.
Congratulations to Greenberg. The Rangers are an impressive team, certainly one to watch, in first place in the AL West. Now with Cliff Lee, they could be a playoff force. I'll be watching.
The Rangers' stadium is awesome adjacent to the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. Just a great facility and welcoming spot for sports fans.
