The final four in the Dodgers' bidding appears to be set.It's on its way to getting really interesting really soon. And it can't come soon enough.
Major League Baseball is expected to reject two bid groups — one led by Shamrock Holdings chief Stanley Gold and the family of the late Roy Disney, the other led by former YES Network chief Leo Hindery and Colony Capital chairman Tom Barrack — before submitting the four remaining bidders to a vote of all 30 owners next week. The plans were confirmed by two people familiar with the sale process but not authorized to discuss it.
The other remaining bidders: hedge-fund billionaire Steven Cohen; St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke and a partnership between Memphis Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley and Ares Capital co-founder Tony Ressler, a minority investor in the Milwaukee Brewers.
