Silver Lake's proposal to acquire a minority stake in Yahoo (YHOO +0.4%) may seem unappealing at first, but it may be the company's best option, argues Henry Blodget. Unlike TPG Capital's bid, Silver Lake's offer comes with Marc Andreessen attached, and it also features plans to overhaul Yahoo's much-criticized board (I, II) and U.S. operations. Blodget is skeptical Alibaba's rumored bid will ever materialize.
