Derek Jeter is confident he and Michael Jordan will outbid rapper Pitbull and his team in the race to become owner of Major League Baseball team, the Miami Marlins.
It’s all in the hands of the Marlins according to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred as the bidders are basically offering the same amount of cash.
There’s Derek Jeter who now has Michael Jordan, owner of the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets on his team. A member of Jeter’s group expressed confidence in their chances of buying the team and with their star power things could go their way.
Then there’s Pitbull who is a Miami native that used to DJ for the Marlins before he got his big break. His celebrity would bring more of a hometown feel to the table. His team of investors include former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Shoney’s CEO David Davoudpour and Marcus Lemonis, a Miami native who starred on the CNBC business turn-around show The Profit.
