08:16 AM ET 03.14 | 'Tis the season for Final Fours. Major League Baseball is expected to reject two bid groups -- one led by Shamrock Holdings chief Stanley Gold and the family of the late Roy Disney, the other led by former YES Network chief Leo Hindery and Colony Capital chairman Tom Barrack -- before submitting the four remaining bidders to a vote of all 30 owners next week. The plans were confirmed by two people familiar with the sale process but not authorized to discuss it. ... The [Stan Kasten-Magic Johnson] bid is the highest for now, at $1.6 billion, with the other bids each worth at least $1.3 billion, according to a Forbes report confirmed by The Times. [Steven Cohen] offered $1.4 billion, including $900 million in cash.

Lord have mercy, let's get this over with! Mediocre management would be an improvement on this long-suffering bunch. Competent management would mean a pennant!

"The plans were confirmed by two people familiar with the sale process but not authorized to discuss it."

So if they weren't authorized to discuss it then why did they?

Right, because only people who are authorized to discuss matter talk to reporters.

How, exactly, do you think we get the vast majority of our news?
