Digging into Chuck Greenberg.... Is he the right choice?

I was looking at Chuck Greenberg's wikipedia again to find out that his son goes to Ohio U.  Apparently he's in my year and my major.  there's only about 17,000 people at the school, so most people know most people or at least heard of them but Ive never heard of him.

 

But anyway, I thought it was interesting that Greenberg was the reason that the Penguins are still in Pittsburgh since he helped make Mario Lemieux the majority owner after the team was in debt to him.

Obviously, everyone knows that he has supposedly been successful with his minor league baseball team..

But I think this makes the Rangers instantly a small market team, with the payroll seemingly not going any higher than it is now.  I guess I'm just used to owners that have the money to spend and are willing to spend.

 
Am I the only person that is scared that this might turn into another Jeffery Loria situation?  I could see Greenberg try to turn this into a money opportunity like many owners do. 

 

Its just interesting that he has no ties to Dallas or anything Texas related.  He is a huge Penguins and Steelers fan..  Does a Dallas sports team have any meaning to his wealth or is it just another thing in his Greenberg sports portfolio?

 

I guess we have to wait and see, but the facts don't look promising...
