(FoxBix) — The owners of the Boston Red Sox are mulling a potential sale of the storied baseball franchise, and have even begun quietly shopping the team to potential buyers, the FOX Business Network has learned. The team is owned by the Fenway Sports Group, which also owns the English football team Liverpool FC. While no final decision has been made about a potential sale, and the talks appear to be in the early stages, executives at Fenway Sports are debating whether they have the financial resources to run both teams, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter. The Red Sox have publicly denied that they are for sale. Reached Thursday, a spokesperson for the team said of the potential sale that “there is no truth to that rumor.” However, there has been talk for some time that the team is informally gauging interest in the club. The price tag eyed for any potential sale would be a steep one, according to people who have spoke with Red Sox management: $1.3 billion. Forbes cites the value of the Red Sox at around $1 billion.
And so it begins. The exit strategy that you knew was eventually coming the second this ownership group took over. Listen I’ve been saying all along that this ownership group will sell you down the river for a fucking nickel. They are nothing but money hungry carpetbaggers. They don’t give a shit about Boston, the fans or anything about the community. They came here with only one agenda and that’s to get rich off us. That’s it. Anytime they say anything different they are lying. That’s why I always puke when these clowns start their song and dance about how they came here for the tradition and passion etc. No you didn’t. You came to this city to make a buck and you’ll leave when somebody offers you a good deal. Hey I ain’t mad at them. I mean keeping Dr. Creepy’s trophy wife happy can’t be cheap. Just don’t pretend to give a fuck the fans. You never did. You never will.
