Any relation to Trump's son in law?
Yep. Daddy. The former felon.  I know one thing for sure. Chris Christie will not be part of the franchise.

NYT reporting that Jared's brother and brother-in-law are part of it, and Charles is not publicly involved.

Ok. I read ESPN earlier but maybe it has been updated.

Trump connection aside, I'm surprised MLB would approve an ownership group led by a felon

That's what I thought also. Maybe that's why other family members are taking the lead.

Brother in law?  Barron?

OT: I wish it was Mark Cuban buying :(

Why?

Never ceases to amaze me how so many people think Mark Cuban is the ideal businessman.

I cannot even imagine the amount of shadiness involved in selling this team for 1.6 billion dollars.   They draw 20,000 (probably only half bought their tickets or even show up) per game and get 30,000 people watching their games on tv.   Forbes values them at 600 million, and a lot of that is because of revenue sharing, national TV and MLBAM money.   

Selling it for a billion dollars over a probably inflated just doesn't make any sense unless it is part of a greater scam.

Why?

It's all about ROI - radio on the internet!

It's about convincing the stupidest large tech company to pay a couple of billion for it.

Nothing particularly business wise, but he's a great sports owner. He's has tried a couple times now to get a team, and has struck out. I think he'd be a great addition to the league.

Maybe Cuba is part of the deal.

Is the stadium part of the deal or is it a government-owned?

The stadium district gives them the opportunity to lease it!

Not going to link an article since they all seem to be taking a political stance on things, but it looks like the Kushner's bid to buy the Marlins is off the table. Loria is potentially going to be named as a candidate for ambassador to France and they decided it was best to walk away rather than open up any debates about tit for tat, etc.

Now that you mention it.    Loria to France would be a shock to their system.

In what way - because he makes such a big thing about 'getting out among the fans' (when all he's really doing is schmoozing with the corporate toffs in the bowl-level seats)?
