In contrast the Rockies owners care about only the budget
So says the biggest basher of the Sox.
Cuban would be willing to spend money, but he's gotta spend it right. Best I can find
has the Cubs 7th in payroll this season and they are already one of the teams to beat in the NL. He would need to develop a strong scouting and development system (as has been mentioned) because their system is one of the worse in baseball, while balancing smart spending at the big league level. He could spend all the money he has on FA, that won't make them competitive. See Andruw Jones and Barry Zito.
