From this morning’s Enquirer
Lot’s of information about the people involved, but the part that got my attention:
Steiner thinks his group would be ideal for the Reds.
“We’d be very innovative and enthusiastic,” he said.
If they bought all of the available shares, that would give them 51% of the team. Whilte the partnership agreement calls for Lindner to be managing partner for life, I would think this would be negotiable or able to be broken by the majority owner of the team.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
