    12. Carl Pohlad, Minnesota Twins: Because Twins fans apparently didn't suffer enough with a ham-handed racist in charge of the club, they got another rare treat when Pohlad took over ownership in 1984. Pohlad has refused to spend on the team, instead bickering with state officials over a new ballpark and threatening to sell the team out of Minnesota for years. When his buddy Bud Selig suggested Major League Baseball contract two teams, Pohlad offered the Twins up for slaughter. Pohlad started his banking fortune, now valued at $2.6 billion, by foreclosing on the land of Minnesota farmers during the Great Depression. State government recently rewarded his long-standing generosity by bankrolling a sweetheart stadium deal for him using taxpayers' money.

    Probably the RICHEST owner in MLB....worth WAY MORE than the hated Steinbrenner...yet he won't spend CRAP on the team.
    Give me Steinbrenner ANY DAY...at least he puts his money where his mouth is!!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    His stupid kids are just as cheap as he is so there is no chance of them doing anything good soon.
