I just read a nice little article by Tim Kurkjian about the Washington Nationals and their lack of an owner. Now, I am not an expert, and I don’t have any inside knowledge, but I don’t see any possible good reason why it has taken so long for Major League Baseball to pick a buyer. When the Expos finally got out of Montreal, it looked like they were going to have a chance to be competitive again, and they were for about four months in 2005. But by failing to get this sale done, Bud Selig has hamstrung the team again and given them absolutely no chance to improve their team for 2006. I wish all eight ownership groups vying for the sale would collude and cut their offers in half at the same time, because let’s face it, every day that the Nationals aren’t improving their team, they are getting worse, which means the value of the team is going down. This is ridiculous, and Bud needs to make a decision now.
