Mark Cuban Reiterates Interest in Buying Pirates

From the Post-Gazette:

I asked Cuban if he has thought of a new answer to the simplistic and relentless, "Why don't you buy the Pirates?" question.

"There is no other answer than that they're not for sale," he said. "I've let it be known through back channels that if they ever were, or if they ever were interested in taking on another investor, I'd be interested."

Cuban continues:

"That said, I think the Buccos are going to be good next year. They're starting to win at home, and that's an important step. I think they have some solid players and, with the new collective bargaining agreement, I think they can start to put their money where their mouth is."

Hopefully our hero doesn't really think that winning at home matters more than winning on the road, that the Bucs have enough "solid players" to contend or that the new Collective Bargaining Agreement is going to make a bit of difference.

It's nice to know he's still interested, though.
