Jeter-led group reportedly front-runners to buy Miami Marlins.
There are reportedly three bidders looking to purchase the Miami Marlins, including a Derek-Jeter led group which has placed a $1.2 billion bid and is considered the front-runner to buy the team from owner Jeffrey Loria.
The report suggests Jordan is kicking in very little cash, although Jeter sees MJ as a role model in how to become a successful sports executive. Jordan is just one of about 15 investors in the Jeter camp bidding for the Marlins.
Loria and the Marlins are not expected to name a winner of the auction by tonight's All-Star Game in Miami, though everything is expected to come to a conclusion next week, according to the Post.
