NO GLASS WARFARE IN K.C.: CEO WON'T RE-ENTER BID PROCESS

          Royals Chair David Glass reiterated that he "will not
     resurface in the bidding process" for the Royals, despite
     Frank Oddo's decision not to pursue the team and as George
     Brett's "interest continues to waver," according to Jeffrey
     Flanagan of the K.C. STAR.  Glass said he was "disappointed"
     in Oddo's decision, but there was "no way" he would get back
     in the process (K.C. STAR, 10/11).  Local Royals bidder
     Jerry Green was profiled by Diane Stafford in Sunday's K.C.
     STAR.  Green, Chair of K.C.-based Union Bank, is backed by a
     "much, much larger out-of-town investor" who Green says "was
     approved" by MLB for a previous franchise bid.  Stafford
     wrote that Green primarily wants "to save the team" for K.C.
     and that he "would be happy if the Brett group wants to
     combine their bid with his" (K.C. STAR, 10/12).
