From what I am hearing is that the team is looking to sell between 120-150 million dollars.
The Brewer's believe it or not are probably one of the most attractive teams to buy in MLB. They have a great new stadium, a top 5 minor league
system, no long-term contracts for the new owner to be stuck with and city that is dying for new life to be put into the team. If you look at the
numbers (attendence wise) when the Braves played in Milwaukee in the 50's the city of Milwaukee outnumbered all other teams in terms of attendence.
The reason I believe that was , was because the team was good and constantly good. If we can get a owner who will put players on the field and give
this team a chance to win then Milwaukee could once again become a major player in the baseball arena. The new owner gets a hefty bonus in the debt
area which is estimated at 105 million currently. Over the next 5 years the new owner would get MLB deductions of 5 million/year towards debt
reduction. Not to mention any new owner would get massive tax breaks. Also with revenue sharing raised and the low payroll the Brewers currently have,
it would allow any owner to come in and basically do whatever he wanted to.
