Pittsburgh sports attorney Chuck Greenberg, who leads the investment group that was selected for exclusive negotiations to buy the Rangers from Hicks Sports Group, said the new ownership group will infuse cash into the budget for player acquisitions for the 2010 trade deadline if approved by that time.
Money for player acquisitions going forward won't be a problem either, said Greenberg, as long as it's the right move and helps move the Rangers toward a championship. He said the ownership group has already shown a committment toward doing what's right for the team when he rounded up some extra money to add to his bid Tuesday in trying to ensure approval from Tom Hicks.
Greenberg also said he has some ideas to improve Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, including the video board, has he tried to make being a Rangers fan a "compelling experience." That starts with putting a good product on the field.
"The goal is really simple, and that’s win," Greenberg said. "Our intention is to make smart decisions that achieve those goals. ... If additional moves need to be made, we need to be smart about it. We want to win, and we want to bring a championship to the Metroplex as soon as possible."
