Proof Tom Hicks has CASH

Uh, yeah.  I'm confused.  The Rangers have been operating under this weird budget which won't let them crazy overspend for good/great players (which means we don't get many good/great players) because they want to keep "financial flexibility" and because they just can't afford to spend like the Yankees/RedSox/WhiteSox/Angels (all of whom are above $100 million).

And then I read this:

Here was my play-by-play reaction when I found saw the headline:

  1. Is that TOM Hicks?
  2. Holy crap! He's really going to do it!
  3. Well, I guess he's interested in a league where you really can buy your way into the top 4 (unlike baseball).
  4. WHAT THE HELL!?  Where does he get $225 million in CASH?!  I mean, really, that much in liquid assets?  Remind why it is again that the Rangers are committed to developing players and acting like their the Twins and A's?  Because if the Stars are losing so much money that they had to shut down the league for a year, it kind of makes you wonder where all the money is coming from.
I think we're being duped.
