Even as a minority owner, Jeter would be in for a windfall.

"He's always talked about it", Mattingly told the Sun Sentinel when asked about Jeter's plan to purchase the team. "Anything Derek wants to do, he's gonna be good at".

The report says former Florida Governor Jeb Bush heads another group that is teaming up with Citigroup to finance a bid. George W. Bush owned the Texas Rangers prior to his election to the White House in 2000.

It has not been a secret that Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is shopping the franchise. I think he would be somewhat involved.

The 76-year-old Loria went from being a NY art dealer to the owner of the Montreal Expos in the early 2000s, then sold that team, which became the Washington Nationals, in a multiparty transaction that eventually landed him the Marlins in 2003 for $158.5 million.

Jeter, who has made his home in Tampa, Florida since his 2014 retirement from professional baseball, will be eligible for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2020 and is widely expected to be elected in his first year on the ballot.
