From "Dodgers bidders cut to Cohen, Magic, Kroenke" by Bill Shaikin at the LA Times:
The field of Dodgers bidders was cut to three on Friday, and a winner could be identified as soon as next week.
The three finalists: a group led by hedge-fund billionaire Steven Cohen and Los Angeles billionaire and philanthropist Patrick Soon-Shiong; a group led by Magic Johnson and veteran baseball executive Stan Kasten; and St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke.
The parties eliminated: a partnership between Memphis Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley and Los Angeles investor Tony Ressler; and a bid by Stanley Gold and the family of the late Roy Disney.
Maybe you've read how Cohen's bid includes the threat of Tony La Russa in an executive capacity, which would presumably scare away progressive-minded management. Which is why it's disappointing Lakers minority shareholder Soon-Shiong partnered with Cohen and not Magic. With Cohen the frontrunner, we can't expect Frank McCourt to do the right thing for the city of Los Angeles and choose Magic...but we can hope.
