Or will he keep it as a second home? Is he going anywhere? The Dallas Morning News is reporting (I subscribe!) that Chuck Greenberg will be replaced as the managing general partner of the Texas Rangers and CEO of the club‚Äôs operating holding company. Expect the announcement later today. Something is apparently rotten in Denmark: a source told the Dallas Morning News that¬† Greenberg left the Rangers‚Äô spring training facility in Surprise, Arizona abruptly on Saturday, this during what was supposed to be a fun-filled, happy, joyous weekend for the partners. And oh dear: Greenberg did not show to a party he and Nolan Ryan were supposed to host on Sunday.
(You what that meant when Rhonda Aikman did not show at Troy’s holiday party.)
It’s only been seven months since the MLB‚Äôs approved Greenberg, Ryan and more than a dozen others to purchase the club for more than $590 million. And the Rangers even made it to the World Series! Last April 26, Chuck Greenberg put a contract on this lovely little number at 2211 Vaquero Estates Boulevard (this video of the home is a must-see) owned by former Cowboy Tony Banks, which was listed for $3.5 million with Roxann Taylor and Associates realtors. The home had been on the market for awhile. It’s Mediterranean style, with¬† 8754 square feet and a view of Vaquero‚Äôs 17th and 18th fairways. It‚Äôs on a cul de sac and has amazing custom finish-out amenities throughout like most Vaquero spreads ‚Äî huge formals, multiple living areas, master suite with his and her closets and full coffee bar, fabulous kitchen with top of the line gourmet appliances, auxiliary kitchen, wine cellar, game room with microwave and drawer-type dishwasher, full media room, huge sparkling pool. The¬† loggia comes with a 42-inch flat screen and outdoor kitchen. One of my trusted sources tells me Vaquero is getting quite active these days, I quote: “things seem to have picked up quite a bit in Vaquero with several home and lot sells since the first of the year”. It must have helped that Forbes.com named Vaquero as America’s Most Affluent Neighborhood.
P.S: Last time I was out there, it appeared that the Greenbergs were doing some work on the house, so I did not snap pics. You don’t take a picture of a girl when she’s in the middle of a face-lift!
