SI ranks Sternberg fifth-best owner

Stuart Sternberg was ranked the fifth best owner in baseball by Sports Illustrated. The top four were: The Red Sox's John Henry led group, the Angels Arte Moreno, the Cardinals Bill DeWitt led group, and the Yankees Steinbrenner family. The criteria used by SI to evaluate owners included: * Team's success or failure on the field. * Willingness to spend money to improve the team. * Stability and capabilities of the front office and management. * Amenities at the team's venue. * Club's culture and interactivity with fans. The bottom five, according to SI, from worst first are the Orioles' Peter Angelos, the Rangers Tom Hicks, the Royals David Glass, the Marlins Jeffrey Loria and the Nationals Ted Lerner.
