Friars Sale to O’Malley Group Done…… Or Is It?
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports got the ball rolling with this this.
So who is right? Is it the reputable MLB corresondant or the local fish wrap? Chances are they both are partially correct. The likelihood is an agreement has been reached in principle for the money mentioned by Rosenthal but the “t’s” may not have been crossed and the “i’s” not dotted.
It’s been rumored a deal was close and the timing of said announcement would likely be around the All-Star break. That falls right in line with Rosenthal’s news today. Expect this to get done quickly and for new onwnership to be announced soon. As Friars fans lets hope this is the beginning of an era of unprecedented success for the team we love.
