Kansas City Royals Reportedly Being Sold

Chicago Cubs

As we saw with the Marlins’ sale, when an MLB organization turns over ownership, the ripple effects throughout the league can be really significant, both in terms of the economics of the sale and in terms of the inevitable organizational overhaul.

So this is very big news:

This looks like it will be a slightly unusual sale, with the new owner a known quantity to the league (he’s already a minority owner of the Indians), and also being something of a privately-negotiated sale – rather than seeking out a bidder.

Whether a sale will mean an organizational overhaul for the Royals, specifically, remains to be seen. The current org is very happy with their front office, which is going through another rebuild. Maybe Whit Merrifield will accidentally hit the new owner’s car with a ball, and the owner will demand he is traded to the Cubs for the cost of repairs.
