WashEx: Jeb Bush looks to Derek Jeter to help buy Miami Marlins

What a team: Jeter couldn’t go to his left; Jeb! couldn’t go right. Sad!

Once rivals in their pursuit to purchase the Miami Marlins, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is teaming up with retired New York Yankees star shortstop Derek Jeter to bid for the baseball team.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has been entertaining offers for the team, which moved to Miami in 2012 and changed its name from the Florida Marlins to the Miami Marlins. With Jeter and Bush, New York financier and manager of Quogue Capital, Wayne Rothbaum, have expressed interest in buying the team, according to the Miami Herald.

Bush, who ran an unsuccessful campaign to become the 2016 Republican presidential nominee, lives southwest of Miami in Coral Gables. Meanwhile, Jeter purchased a house in Tampa in 2014.

Derek Jeter, Jeb Bush Among Billion-Dollar Marlins Bidders

How much is an outfield bar and associated businesses worth?

At least three possible bidders have emerged to purchase the Miami Marlins baseball team including one representing the country’s most prominent political family, and one representing a future Hall of Famer, the FOX Business Network has learned.

Former New York Yankees star shortstop Derek Jeter has expressed interest in bidding for the team, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter. He is being represented in talks with Marlins president David Samson by veteran Wall Street executive and former Morgan Stanley (MS) brokerage chief Gregory Fleming, who now runs his own investment banking boutique, the people say.

Another major contender is a group headed by former Florida Governor and one-time GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who is teaming up with Citigroup (C) to finance a possible official bid, these people add.

Hannah Jeter: The Derek I Know

Congrats to the Jeter family. As for reports of the sonogram showing the girl has trouble moving to her left, that remains UNCONFIRMED.

On May 14, the Yankees will retire Derek’s number. It’s a significant moment, and one that’s had me thinking a lot about the end of his playing career — those last two years for him as a player, that also happened to be the first two years for us as a couple. Big moments have a funny way of doing that, I think — of getting you to look over your shoulder and reflect.

Big moments also have a funny way of making you look ahead.

Now, pregnant with our first child, Derek and I are looking to the future.

He already has a name in mind — he’s set on it. (We’ll see.) He’ll say when he calls me during the day:

“So, how are you and so-and-so doing?”

“That’s not the name yet, sweetie.”

Whatever her name is, I know she’ll run circles around him.

We want our kids’ lives to be as “normal” as possible. They’re going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They’re going to have to be some strong little people. We don’t want them to be defined by their dad’s name — for them, we want him to just be “Dad.” That will be the piece of him they’ll have that the rest of the world doesn’t. It will be special, and it will be theirs.

Still, though, I want them to know Derek Jeter. I feel some sadness — and Derek must as well — thinking about how our children will never get to experience that time in his life. We can show them videos, and photos, and memorabilia — I already can’t wait to show them footage of that last night at the Stadium. But I know it won’t be quite the same. I’ll tell them myself: You had to be there.

And I’m sure that both of us will be thinking about that in May.

Pipeline Inbox: Comparing Swanson to Jeter | MLB.com

Somewhere out there is a New York writer ready to make this quote, “Dansby Swanson, I watched Derek Jeter. I knew Derek Jeter. Derek Jeter was a friend of mine. Dansby Swanson, you’re no Derek Jeter.”

Yankees To Retire Derek Jeter’s Number On May 14

The ultimate honor:

Derek Jeter’s No. 2 is being retired, the last of the New York Yankees’ single digits. The Yankees said Tuesday the number will be retired on May 14 before a Mother’s Day game against Houston, and a plaque in his honor will be unveiled in Monument Park during the ceremony.

Jeter’s number is the 21st retired by the team. He won five World Series titles and was a 14-time All-Star during a 20-season career that ended in 2014 and he is sixth in career hits with 3,465. Jeter set Yankees records for hits, games (2,747), at-bats (11,195), doubles (544) and stolen bases (358).

Going to be tough for Gleyber Torres to top that.
