Jeter, Bush In The Running To Purchase The Miami Marlins?

It's opening week for Major League Baseball, and there's been plenty of talk about a possible Marlins sale, with some big names being floated around. 

According to a report by, at least three possible bidders have emerged — former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, former Florida Governor and one-time GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush, and a third, unknown party of businessmen who have gained financial backing from Goldman Sachs.

Jeter is a former teammate of Marlins Manager Don Mattingly (dating back to 1995). Mattingly later coached the Yanks while Jeter was still playing.

Bush doesn't have a background in baseball, but his brother, George W., is a former co-owner of the Texas Rangers.

The Marlins’ current owner Jeffrey Loria has expressed interest in selling the Marlins for the past year.

The Marlins finished the 2016 season in third place in the National League Eastern Division with a 79-82 record. 

They lost their first two games of the 2017 season to the Washington Nationals. They play the Nationals again Thursday at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. at 4:05 p.m.
