Derek Jeter Reportedly Interested In Purchasing The Miami Marlins


Former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has expressed interest in bidding on the team, according to Gasparino and Schwartz, and veteran Wall Street executive Gregory Flemming is representing Jeter during the bidding. The future Hall of Famer now makes the Sunshine State his full-time home since hanging up the spikes in 2014. They are also said to be competing against a group led by former presidential candidate and Florida governor, Jeb Bush.

There is also the third group of unnamed individuals to contend with, backed by Goldman Sachs (GS). The Marlins won the 2003 World Series over the Yankees under Loria and opened a new stadium in 2012, but haven't had a winning season since 2009.

The Marlins are believed to be worth more than $1 billion.

"You always listen to anything, because that's responsible", Samson said.

"I have no comment", said Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, who was in Washington to watch his team. Earlier this year, it was widely reported that Loria was in discussions with Joshua Kushner and Joseph Meyer about a possible sale, though several issues emerged-including whether Kusher and Meyer could raise the funds needed to buy the Marlins, and discussions about Loria possibly being appointed as US ambassador to France by the Trump administration, which includes Joshua's brother Jared.


The Fox report mentioned that at least three potential buyers have emerged, though only Jeter and Bush were identified. "Jeets pretty much seems to be good at everything he tries to do".

Loria bought the team in 2002 for $158 million.

Bush's brother, former President George W. Bush, owned the Texas Rangers before becoming president.

"So I'm in the process of building a place where athletes have the tools they need to share what they really think and feel", he said on a post on the site. "I asked him if he wanted to coach and he's like, "Never".

"Talks are ongoing with other groups who are interested in purchasing the team", Samson told the Miami Herald.
