Arlington, Fort Worth mayors weigh in on Rangers ownership

Now, the mayors of Arlington and Fort Worth have decided to weigh in on the saga of the Texas Rangers bankruptcy.

At a hastily called news conference on Monday, Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck and Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief said they believe that the team will be better off with Nolan Ryan and Chuck Greenberg in the driver's seat.

Standing in front of Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, the mayors said they were compelled to speak out on behalf of Rangers fans by supporting the Ryan-Greenberg bid to buy the bankrupt club at Wednesday's auction.

Both said that they are not against other potential bidders -- which apparently include Mavericks owner Mark Cuban -- but that they believe the team could reach the World Series with Ryan in charge. He currently is the team president.

Why can't the other bidders just but out already? No one wants them, not MLB, not the fans and not the club. Do they get some kind of sick, twisted pleasure out of trying to ruin this for everyone else?

Why don't the Mayors bud out? Who asked them.
