HERRICK READY TO STEP UP TO PLATE FOR BLUE JAYS
FL-based developer Norton Herrick, who led Orlando's failed
MLB expansion bid, confirmed Friday that he is interested in
buying the Blue Jays and is willing to enter "immediate
negotiations" with Intrebrew SA, the Belgian brewer that will
assume the team along with Labatt's other entertainment holdings.
Herrick, who previously had expressed interest only in the CFL
Argonauts, told the TORONTO SUN: "We would be interested in
purchasing both. The Argonauts, there's no real value in them to
be honest, but it doesn't matter." Intrebew is believed to be
asking C$190M for both teams (Gary Picknell, TORONTO SUN, 6/17).
