    Bud doesn't like boat-rocking, let alone people like Cuban who stand up in the boat and yell about the direction it's headed. I'll be surprised if this gets very far past the rumor stage.

    I think he would be great for Baseball...Love the guys passion in the NBA...sure he is a bit of a sideshow but he sparks the fans to let them know he loves the team too!

    Hey it's his money.

    If he wants perpetual losers to waste money on, go ahead.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    I didn't think the Cubs could get any worse.

    The Cubs are going to be 62.5-99.5 this year then? I'm sure Cubs fans will love not losing 100 games.

    I know it's apples-to-oranges, but the Mavs were a perennial doormat before Cuban took over. Now look at them. I like the Cubs just the way they are, thanks.

    Dude, you're forgetting about the goat. No amount of money can lift that curse. It's a goat!

    The Cubs need to attack that curse head-on. They need Steve Bartman to lead a goat out to the mound and throw out the first pitch on Opening Day. No curse could stand up to that.

    It's amazing how much money came out of that little audio thing Mark Cuban sold off before the dotcom bubble burst.
