    Could this mean there will soon be one less 'loser' to drain money from the theme parks?

    I don't have much of an opinion one way or the other concerning disney's sports teams- keep or sell, but I find it curious that a sucessful business man would want to buy a team that loses millions each year- even in a world championship season. The team was never a winner or money maker for Gene and I don't see where Disney mis-managed the team. Their team payroll is relatively low and still manage to win the Series.They are located in a large population area. TV revenue is guaranteed. It just seems that sports loyalties the the Anihiem area are directed towards LA. Maybe he's buying for ego, similar to Dallas Mavs owner Mark Kuban. Must be nice to have that kinda money.
