Is Rupert Murdoch Going to Buy the Texas Rangers?

0802ryan Is Rupert Murdoch Going to Buy the Texas Rangers?The Post reports that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation is interested in buying the Texas Rangers. The theory goes that News Corp — which owned the Dodgers for one rather unforgettable seven year run from 1998 to 2004 — would like to offset the broadcasting fees it pays the Rangers to air their games on television (they pay $35 million a year to air Rangers games on Fox Sports Southwest) so they might as well buy the team while it it’s available in a bankruptcy court auction. Other interested bidders include Mark Cuban and former Rangers great Nolan Ryan. Bids will start at $307 million.
