Chuck Greenberg back in the picture?


Pittsburgh attorney Chuck Greenberg's proposal to buy the Texas Ranges has hit a few road blocks, and this morning Nolan Ryan expressed new doubt about the purchase of the team.

Greenberg, a finalist for the Pirates presidency in 2007, approached the idea of buying the Pirates a couple years ago, but was "brushed off" by Nutting.  

If the Rangers sale doesn't go through - could this give new life to Greenberg and any ambitions to buy the Pirates?   I don't know if you could call the Pirates value of $289 million (Forbes) discounted, but it would certainly be much less expensive than the Rangers sale, and one could argue, with a significant potential for growth (read: better team).  

Any thoughts on Greenberg possibly getting back in the picture?  Or is it just another Cuban/Lemieux/Burkle dream?  The latest SI article on the Pirates has the recent investments in the team (Latin America, facilities, building analytics department, etc) as fueling speculation that Nutting is preparing to sell the team - any credence to this idea?
