Exclusive Interview With Josh Macciello

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to sit down for an exclusive interview with Dodgers bidder Josh Macciello. There has been a lot of discussion on whether his bid is for real or should he be taken seriously by MLB. Josh and I have talked on and off camera and I can verify everything that he presented to me that day. I saw

  • Proof of funds –  HSBC HK with a deposit of $10 Billion available Free and Clear. Funds are being transferred to the U.S. and will be available 2/20/12
  • The $2.2 Billion bid to purchase the Dodgers that was put into escrow
  • Background information on his partners Fred Furrow and Myung Ho Lee
  • Email messages from The Blackstone Group
  • Messages from a potential baseball business partner that he cannot name at the moment

I can verify that his bid is legit and in the hands of MLB at the moment. Will they accept it, that remains to be seen, but I have no doubt that everything that was presented to me was real. I do hope that MLB lets him participate in the auction. We need the best people to move forward. We need the people that are going to care about the team, the fans, the city and bringing championships to Los Angeles. The bidders that are seeing this as another business transaction need not apply.
