Cuban appeared on "TMZ Live" Tuesday ... claiming the Dodgers are still an enticing franchise ... but the organization appears to be so messed up financially, that it could be impossible to turn around.

Cuban says he will take a closer look at the team -- and insists, "If they're fixable and the deal is right, then I'm very interested."

I'll translate what Mark Cuban said for the financially impaired:

"If they're dirt cheap, I'll snap them up in a Texas minute."

Its time for the Dodgers to ignite. Its the only way to save the club. Just like in the movie Major League, "you got to win the whole thing". Their way of responding to this on the field will bring back the fans. Anyone heading to Vegas? I would drop money on the Dodgers to go all the way.

If I were Cuban, the way MLB treated him when the Cubs were for sale, Id make them beg for his help. Then laugh and walk away.

Hopefully the Dodgers won't die-off. They've been an LA monument for decades.

Butt, I'd throw in $25 if Mark just bought the Lakers and got them the Hell out of town :>

The Dodgers are not sucessful now, because hard working Americans of all races, would rather not attend a game at the park, due to safety and the gangs the team/sport attracts. Thats why we need Football here, so Baseball can become classy again.

And whats with the dudes finger next to Cuban? Is it broken or plastic or what.....?

lmao at impossible to turn around. Any baseball team in L.A. is a franchise worth investing in. The Dodgers averaged over 50K in attendance for years before this season. He's just angling for a lower price tag.

As a Mavs fan, I'm not sure how I feel about Mark buying the Dodgers...his attention to the Mavs will definitely be affected....but it will save a team. Oh, well, it's his decision.

The team is worthless. Now add in the 100 MILLION the Dodgers will be liable for (the guy who was beat senseless due to reduced security to save money). Pay Cuban to haul the team off.

I saw that picture of Mark Cuban leaning back and having a big belly laugh, and was sure it was about Ryan Dunn's murder-suicide. The story didn't match the photo at all... =(
