The Cubs are not about to become Cuban's, contrary to an Internet report.

Mark Cuban, the billionaire blogger, entrepreneur and owner of pro basketball's Dallas Mavericks, on Wednesday shot down a Radar Online report that said he is "is set to offer $625 million to buy the Chicago Cubs from Tribune Co."

"Not true," Cuban said by e-mail.

Radar quoted "a source familiar with the matter" as saying Cuban is "desperate to buy the Cubs" and "wants this so bad." It said it got no response from Cuban, who responded to a Chicago Tribune inquiry concerning the report in less than 15 minutes.

"I have no idea where they got their info," Cuban said.

Tribune Co., which owns the Cubs, the Chicago Tribune and other media properties, is currently exploring options to boost shareholder value.

This whole Cuban buying the Cubs rumor seems to pop up on the net every 6 months or so.

Does anyone really think Selig will allow Cuban to own a team after seeing his antics in the NBA?

He would rival Steinbrenner. NBA has a salary cap. Can you imagine what he'd spend in Chicago?

No we don't.

We need a front office that understands the importance of OBP, and a manager that knows how to put together a lineup.
