Blank declares interest

AJC wrote:Tuesday night, Arthur Blank’s spokeswoman said the Falcons’ owner might be interested in purchasing the Braves. Today Blank’s office reiterated that through a statement:

“We are aware that the Atlanta Braves may be available for purchase, and we have been informed of this potential opportunity. As with all other potential investments, we will review any information provided when we receive it and give this opportunity consideration as warranted.

“It is inappropriate to comment beyond this, and it is premature to speculate about whether anything will develop.”


Well, sort of......

No, TBS has a contract with MLB/Braves until 2008 or 2013 or something. I think the number of games might go down, though. Oh well, thank God for mlb.tv

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
