Prospective Owners Submit Bids For Dodgers

The deadline for prospective ownership groups to submit bids for the Dodgers was Monday, and the Dodgers received "more than 10" bids per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, who has covered this story from head to toe for well over two years.

Through Shaikin, Tony Jackson of ESPN LA and Molly Knight of ESPN The Magazine, we know the following groups have reportedly submitted bids for the team:

  • Magic Johnson & Stan Kasten
  • Joe Torre & Rick Caruso
  • Peter O'Malley
  • Mark Cuban
  • Steve Garvey & Orel Hershiser
  • Steven Cohen
  • Roy Disney's family & Stanley Gold
  • Dennis Gibert, Jason Reese, and Randy Wooster
  • Joshua Macciello

This is only the beginning of the process, as Shaikin noted, and opening bids might not necessarily be what they seem:

The opening bids are not binding. As a result, according to sports business consultant Marc Ganis, a prospective owner might offer more money now than he might realistically be willing to spend.

"You'd want to bid higher to make sure you get into the next round," Ganis said.
