Oscar De La Hoya to buy the LA Dodgers ? Empty

The Frank and Jamie McCourt divorce trial isn't even over yet.

The Los Angeles Dodgers aren't even for sale.

Yet, there are people of influence and wherewithal around Los Angeles offering opinions about the future of the Dodgers.

Peter O'Malley, the longtime owner of the franchise, thinks the McCourts should put the team up for sale.

And now, Oscar De La Hoya would be interested -- if the Dodgers were for sale -- in buying the franchise.

"Interested? Are you kidding me? It would be an honor to somehow be involved with the Dodgers," De La Hoya told 710 ESPN in Los Angeles. "We are born, raised and live here in L.A. We are very, very interested. We would be on top of it. Hopefully something will come out of it. "

De La Hoya, a native of Los Angeles, earned a gold medal as an amateur in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. As a professional he amassed a record of 39-6 and won 17 world titles in six weight divisions. He is the founder of Golden Boy Promotions.

"First off, " De La Hoya continued about the Dodgers. "Obviously, there are a lot of problems and issues that have to be resolved. But we're right here waiting and willing."

He added: "We haven't even thought about putting a group of investors together. But it wouldn't be difficult at all.

Oscar doesn't have anywhere NEAR the cash to be a guy who could lead an investor group.

If the Dodgers were to be sold with Chavez Ravine? That's an $800 million-ish sale. In today's lending market the investors would have to come up with at least 40% of that or in excess of $300 million.

The lead guy will have to come up with $75-$100 million. I can't imagine Oscar has even half that much liquid and available.

In LA think businessmen like Eli Broad, Ron Burkle, Donald Bren, Steven Spielberg etc. The billionaires.

Oscar can't buy the Dodgers. I guess Cuban also said it's too much for him.

Sieleg is gonna do what he did with the Rangers and Cubs, make it tough for anyone other than one of his interests/people get the team.

They want to have an auction, it won't happen because if it did that would mean the person/group paying the most money could buy the team.
