Mark Cuban: MLB Has Become Bud Selig's Mafia

Tell us what you really think, Mr. Cuban, sir. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban didn't hold anything back when he appeared on NBC's Tonight Show with Jay Leno. After excoriating MLB for making Alex Rodriguez's suspension time "personal", he went on to calculate his own likelihood of ever getting a baseball franchise: "I've got to tell you, with my experiences with Major League Baseball—and after all of this, there's no chance I'm getting to buy a team—it's basically become Bud Selig's mafia. He runs it the way he wants to run it. They don't want me to own a team." In 2009, Cuban was rebuffed in his bid for the Chicago Cubs and in 2010 he was turned away in his efforts to buy the Texas Rangers.
