    Marlins Loria is selling the Marlins

    Marlins Reportedly Have "Handshake Agreement" To Sell Team - MLB Trade Rumors

    10:27am: The Marlins have a “handshake agreement” in place to sell the team to a New York-based real estate developer for the price of $1.6 billion, reports Mike Ozanian of Forbes.

    The $1.6 billion price tag would be more than 10 times the $158MM price at which owner Jeffrey Loria purchased the team back in 2002.

    ESPN's Darren Rovell identified Charles Kushner (Ivanka Trump's father-in-law) as a NY-based real estate developer who was in the bidding, but Jon Heyman says Kushner is not involved in the handshake deal.

    if the sale of the team does ultimately go through, Loria will have paid just $15.5MM of the $325MM that is owed to star right fielder Giancarlo Stanton on his exceptionally backloaded 13-year contract.
    Of course Loria was never going to be the owner who owes Stanton all that money.

    Its a shame that a scum bag like Loria gets to cash in after destroying two franchises.

    So it turns out Jared Kushner's older brother was the bidder, but now he's backing out because he doesn't want risk jeopardizing Loria's nomination by Trump to be the ambassador to France, with quid pro quo accusations. Which is silly since the quid pro quo accusation is all about Loria's $125,000 donation to Trump's campaign.
