MLB Owners Vote To Accept Ryan and Greenburg

Major League Baseball owners polled themselves at their Minneapolis meetings yesterday and they agreed to accept the new proprietors of the Rangers.  Last week, of course, the Ryan-Greenburg duo out-dueled Mavs owner Mark Cuban to acquire the right to buy the bankrupt Rangers from Tom Hicks.  But under Major League Baseball rules, the other owners can always black-ball any potential owner they don’t like.  Thus, yesterday’s vote, although a formality, makes it official and it was unanimous to okay the new ownership team.
