    Why not get it out of the way. The season is at risk of being almost lost if it’s not up and running by 2nd week of June.

    Wait…. what, I just heard that Derek Jeter and J Lo are rumored to be interested in buying the Mets.

    You mean ARod and JLo. Jeter taking away his girl would be real news, though!

    An update.

    In the earlier deal that fell through with Steve Cohen, a majority stake in the Mets was to fetch $2.6 billion – without the SNY Network and with allowing the Wilpons to remain in control for five years.

    IF A-Rod/J-Lo (quite the name for a purchasing group) were to buy the Mets, they would likely have the best looking owners in sports. I mean who would you rather have a business lunch with, J-Lo, or Jerry Jones? 🙂

    Such a bad business baseball is that billionaires are lining up to join…

    This will be interesting for multiple reasons including the estimates of franchise values that have the Mets and Cards very close.

    Even the Card’s FO wouldn’t make a deal like this although they’ve been duped several times. I have a great dislike for the Mets but I hope that A-Rod and J-Lo can buy the team. Those two have had good luck with the deals they have made so far.

    It could be really entertaining, but MLB has a history of vetoing prospective owners they don’t like. I wonder how the others feel about the two?

    They are on the short list. NYC, and especially the press, would welcome them being the winners big time.

    The press and fans also love Mark Cuban and he was kept out. The owners don’t seem to want big personalities in their club. I wonder if the peer competition with Jeter is a factor in A-Rod’s interest. Quite a contrast in their images, though. Not that long ago, A-Rod lied to, fought with and embarrassed the game and was suspended for an entire year. While he has generally been rehabilitated in the public eye mostly because he is smooth in front of the camera, I have to wonder if the owners can forgive and forget as easily as many fans seem to have. Either way, it should be fun to watch.

    This is 2020…. Its A-ROD and J-LO man. A lot of people get excited about this… maybe the owners not so much.

    We get bonus in-season “mystery bidders” here in 2020!

    Jerry and Julia = mystery bidders? Isn’t Julia a big Orioles fan?

    I read somewhere that final bids are supposedly due 8/31.

    We can talk about the Mets being a mess, but unfortunately right now the Cardinals are pretty much in the same category.

    The Mets have been this way for years. The Cardinals problems will pass soon enough.

    Mets rotation takes another hit. Peterson, who is currently the SP2 or 3, to the IL w/shoulder stiffness.

    Not surprising to me. Cohen was close once before.
