With the news that Dodgers owner Frank McCourt had reached a settlement agreement with Major League Baseball to sell the team, speculation has already commenced in earnest about potential bidders for one of baseball's jewel franchises. Among those mentioned in early speculation has been Red Sox chairman Tom Werner, who bought the Sox along with principal owner John Henry in 2001.
Though he did not explicitly rule out the possibility of bidding, Werner -- a longtime television executive who resides in Southern California -- suggested that he is not eager to part ways with Boston.
"I am very happy in Boston (except for a few days this past October)," Werner wrote in an e-mail.
Bidding on the Dodgers, according to multiple reports, could be in excess of $1 billion.
