Investors partly financed by state-owned institutions in China made a $1.2b bid for the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team, which filed for bankruptcy in June, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The offer must be approved by Major League Baseball and the bankruptcy court, the newspaper said.

However, the bid would face substantial obstacles, said the New York Times, citing several sports business experts.

I implore China to buy the NBA so it will free up air time for other sports in the spring.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

hahaha this is like me investing in Ping pong.
sorry . baseball isn't a game of zhong guo ren. no offense. but you guys just don't have it in your blood.
just like we Americans, as well as CHinese, can't play soccer,.....oh

Go ahead and buy the Dodgers. you will lose out on that deal for sure.

invest in real estate instead.

thats kind of funny

dodgers is a good name for a team owned by china

i like it..

although they may consider changing the name to dodgy

dodgy products

dodgy service

dodgy relationships

dodgy standards

dodgy activities

dodging away from laws

dodging accountability

dodging ethical concerns

dodging responsibilities

dodgers refers to the group and how they engage in most business practices

baseball is an awesome game for China, baseball and american football are two sports i think China could excel at

association football obviously isnt working for them

and who knows why they think basketball is their sport.. most of them would just get their heads caught under the shorts of most basketball players

but american football has positions for every kind of person, ability, and build

and baseball is perfect for normal-sized people
