According to Variety’s Scott Soshnick, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are in the process to raise capital for a potential bid on the New York Mets. Mets ownership Steve and Jeff Wilson have been seeking a buyer for quite some time. Their attempt to strike a deal with billionaire Steve Cohen fell through back in early 2019. "Despite the efforts of the parties over the past several months, it became apparent that the transaction as contemplated would have been too difficult to execute,” said Mets ownership. If successful Rodriguez would be the second former All-Star to serve as an owner in the National League East. Derek Jeter is the first as a part owner of the Miami Marlins.
