Would you take a "Boss"

Ok granted we already had one Boss in Chicago (if you have not read the book on King Richard the first- Mayor Richard Daley to those outside Chicago...its fascinating).  But, if the random billionaire (George Soros on polish sausage perhaps) with a penchant for Cubs baseball came along and bought the Cubs.  Then proceeded to spend the necessary 200-250 Million dollars on the roster every year would YOU, as a Cubs fan complain?  

Would we be sad that we have become the evil empire, or would we just be happy to (possibly) be winning?

I have always thought the best argument for no salary cap is that in the right hands a new owner can pour their pocket book into a woeful franchise and get them back to winning, perhaps it might not be so bad here.

On a sidenote I realize our payroll is among the higher in the league, but I am talking astronomical payroll not just top 10.

Second sidenote: If anyone on this board ever becomes a rich oil tycoon/hedge fund manager, please for me, become the next Boss and buy Ichiro from the Mariners.
