What exactly is the situation with the team's ownership stance right now, are they in receivership/bankruptcy kentatm?
they are in bankruptcy which is why the Ryan/Greenberg group may end up losing the team.
apparently, Hicks wanted $40 million more from R/G and he wasn't going to get it. He kept asking MLB to allow him to open bidding again and they wouldn't.
Some lawyer (dunno if it was an MLB or a Hicks lawyer) decided to put the team into bankruptcy so MLB has lost most control over what they can do. The deal would already be done had that not happened.
