Pitiful Cubs could use a maverick owner

Mark Cuban would be interested in owning the Cubs. I know this because he said so, by e-mail, responding quicker to my questions than it takes Andy MacPhail to remove his tinted sunglasses and Dusty Baker to make a pitching change. Tired of writing every week that baseball-inept Tribune Co. should sell the club and set Cubdom free, I chose to seek solutions this time and gauge the self-made billionaire's level of curiosity.

It's higher than I thought.

"If the Cubs come up for sale, it would most likely happen through an investment banker. If they produce a book, I certainly would take a look at it,'' wrote Cuban, who found time to answer even with his basketball team, the Dallas Mavericks, sitting two victories from the NBA Finals.

Why the Cubs? Wouldn't he have better things to do than fight with an old billy goat? Seems Cuban, like much of America, has a love affair with Wrigley Field.

"I've been there a bunch of times and had a blast every time. It's attractive because [the Cubs] are an institution in Chicago,'' wrote Cuban, who sang "Take Me Out to the Ball Game'' four summers ago and didn't botch it like Ozzy Osbourne and Mike Ditka.
