    Pikup Androppov: So Jeb! Bush and Jeets bought the Marlins… gotta do a better job than Loria did right?

    Dave Cameron: The story really got oversold; they entered into an agreed-upon price if they can raise the funds, but neither of them has $1.3 billion, so it’s nowhere near a sale yet.

    this would give me pause about Jeb Bush's bid if I were Marlins fan

    "When the Marlins struck a tentative deal with Bush, their understanding was that Bush had his investors lined up. But in the past week, three prominent South Florida residents who requested anonymity said a Bush associate contacted them asking them either to invest or suggest potential investors."

    Skeptical Bush has the coffers, or has the potential co-investors lined up, to compete with the big teams.

    One thing to round up $1.3b, whole other issue to then operate alongside the Dodgers, Cubs, and Yankees. Esp in a market that has unique money generating circumstances, few built-in advantages. I was talking about the latter...not the former.

    Jeter is supposed to run the baseball side whereas Bush runs the business side. But they are saying today that Jeter hates watching baseball and isnt the pat riley type who will be in the stands watching the games closely and making moves based on what he sees so I would hope he brings along somebody to handle the baseball stuff.

    In the herald today they talked about an infamous story where A rod went to Jeters house and was trying to put on a game to watch and Jeter doesnt even have the MLB package shocking A rod

    • B) Jeter, despite his impeccable reputation and Hall of Fame-caliber career, has never shown much interest in watching baseball games, according to published reports.


    From Joel Sherman’s New York Post column on Sunday:

    “Here is the oddity Jeter might have to work most to explain: He was a man who all but bragged that he never watched baseball, and now he wants to buy one of the 30 teams at a moment when Commissioner Rob Manfred is obsessed with getting people to watch the sport.


    “Jeter mentioned his distaste for watching baseball many times during his career. As an example, in his book “The Yankee Years,” Tom Verducci relates that the baseball-infatuated A-Rod was at Jeter’s apartment and was stunned Jeter did not have the MLB TV package. Mike Borzello, the Yankees’ bullpen catcher at the time, witnessed the exchange.

    “It was just so funny because Derek will never watch a baseball game other than the one he’s playing in,” Borzello said. “They’re just complete opposites. I remember Alex’s reaction to it was like, ‘How is that possible?’ ”

    One source in contact with the Bush group said Jeter wants to be in position to hire the key people in the Marlins’ baseball operations department and actively involved in operations but has shown no interest in scouting a lot of games and hasn’t said how involved he plans to be in trade decisions.

    But if Bush buys the team – and then Jeter replaces Michael Hill as the man running baseball operations – the former Yankees great might want to subscribe to MLB’s out-of-market TV package, at the very least.

    Bill Gates could buy them and they aren't going to operate like the Dodgers or Yankees. In most cases, operating budget is dependent on income, not ownership.

    Does a team President really have to watch a ton of baseball? I assume he'd have a GM and a staff if scouts to do that. The President is responsible for hiring the right people to crunch a lot of numbers and watch a lot of baseball.

    Entirely dependent? No. If that were the case every team would be operating exactly in the same proportion to income.

    Very few operate above their income. It's sports to us, but it's still a business to the owner.

    They aren't losing $100m or more, which is what it would take for the Marlins to operate on the level of the Dodgers or Yankees. The Yankees and Dodgers have $500m income while the Marlins have $200m. It's a massive gap that not even Paul Allen would bridge.

    I dont think it is possible to lose money in the NBA. The teams may divert revenue to other businesses. The Blackhawks owner also owns the liquor distributor that sells all of the alcohol to the games and that money doesn't go to the Blackhawks. They lose money every year but the owners are doing just fine with the overall business.

    Would you want to watch baseball if you played 180 baseball games/year?

    He probably doesn't watch porn either because he has sex 480 times/year, that doesn't mean he doesn't know his way around a vagina.

    The financials of every team in the NBA got leaked a few years ago, and there were 9 teams operating in the red even with the revenue sharing. The Nets lost over $144 mil that season because they paid out mountains of luxury tax money and were ineligible for any revenue sharing due to the size of their market. No idea if there are side businesses and licensing agreements that didn't make it onto those revenue calculations.

    Jeb Bush pulled back from his partnership with New York Yankees icon Derek Jeter in part because the two couldn’t come together on how they’d set up the hierarchy and who’d be the “control” person, people familiar with the situation say.

    But while there was a basic disagreement on that major issue, folks still paint the parting as fairly or mostly “amicable,” and more importantly some involved with the sale see Jeter as not only a viable alternative but even “the favorite” to win the team.

    “I believe Jeter’s in position to get the deal done,” one person familiar with the discussions said. Bush was said by sources to be planning to chip in only $10 million – less than 1 percent the sale price – so it’s hard to understand how he could ever think he’d be in control. While it isn’t known how much Jeter plans to invest, he is seen as the best possible vehicle to raise money in baseball as a universally beloved and respected figure with five rings and no blemishes on his record.

    The Bush departure (and he has told people he exited over the control issue) doesn’t seem to have dampened Jeter’s desire or effort to be part of an ownership group, and many people do still see him as having a realistic chance despite some financing concerns. Nor has it dampened the spirits of some connected to the Marlins, who seem to still seem to prefer his group.

    MLB, which also is undoubtedly excited about a possible Jeter ownership, would want any incoming group to have close to $900 million in hand, and word is that “both groups are still trying to solidify things,” according to someone in the know.

    The main rival for the team, the Tagg Romney-Tom Glavine group, has been thought to be the more solid of the two groups financially, and while it isn’t certain how much is lost in Jeter’s group with Bush dropping out, it may not be much. It isn’t known whether any or many investors who were tied with Bush will join with Jeter, but Bush, who tried once before and came close to buying the Marlins (he is thought to have had a big financial backer then for what was believed to be a purchase of around $900 million), had a few investors but apparently didn’t raise very much money in the scheme of things.

    Marlins people seem to have known about Bush’s coming departure, which was first reported by AP, for weeks, and it hasn’t seemed to have dampened their hopes one iota for a Jeter group – and though they obviously need two viable groups to remain the bidding, others do share in that optimism.

    It isn’t known why the Jeter group seems to be preferred, but while it’s nice to have a baseball legend, it’s quite likely that the reason is that he’s seen as having a good chance is that he may be seen as being more amenable to the $1.3-billion asking price, or something close to it.

    Bush had denigrated as “fake news” reports skeptical about his chances to buy the Marlins, and ultimately, those reports proved to be correct. He may not have been low on energy, but he was decidedly low on funds
