IS LINDNER TAKING A SCHOTT TO GET REDS OWNER TO SELL OUT?
Cincinnati financier Carl Lindner "is quietly trying to
convince" Marge Schott to sell her shares in the team,
according to Bill Straub of the CINCINNATI POST. If Schott
decides to sell, her 6 1/2 shares of the Reds would be
offered to the Reds' limited partners, including Lindner,
who holds 1 1/2 shares. Sources also said it was Lindner
who advised Schott to announce her support for a renovated
Cinergy Field over a new ballpark (CINCINNATI POST, 11/15).
