Mark Cuban, Atlanta Braves Owner? Nope

How's that for a straightforward headline? You didn't even have to click it to get the entire story. Amid daydreams that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban could look to buy a certain local baseball team, the billionaire himself has commented:

David O'Brien@ajcbraves If Liberty Media sells #Braves, Mark Cuban won't pursue: " I like franchises that need a lot of help. The Braves have a great franchise."

BUT BUT BUT MR. CUBAN THE PHILLIES PURCHASE A LOT OF PITCHERS. Surely Atlanta needs a lot of help because of that.

It's a shame, since so many of the Braves ' best and adorably worst days came under the watch of eccentric rich person Ted Turner. Current owner Liberty Media thinks of the franchise as pretty much another chain of book stores. Braves fans envious of what Arthur Blank has done with the Falcons will have to hold out for Gucci Mane, it appears.
