Mark Cuban Talks About Not Owning The Dodgers

Mark Cuban has tried to buy a trio of baseball teams and by all reports hasn't come particularly close to breaking into the MLB brotherhood. Cuban used his Access Hollywood connection to explain the shortcomings of his latest bid for the dodgers.

It just didn't work out. I wanted to buy a baseball team; they were selling a media rights deal [...] told Access Hollywood Live's Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday. "It just wasn't going to work out." [...]

The economics got so out of control because the Dodgers' TV deal's up for bid and so there's a lot of groups coming in going, 'This TV deal's worth so much money that we're gonna pay whatever it takes to get the Dodgers.' And so they're buying the TV rights deal first and the team second.

Rumors still linger from from Cubans attempts to buy the Cubs and Rangers that other owners don't like the idea of him joining their ranks, but as these deals get more complicated - and we did see this at the end of the Rangers and Astros processes - MLB is often going to have to accept whoever can put the deal together financially. Cuban wasn't that guy this time, but given the number of attempts he's already made, he may pull it off eventually.
