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).
