Jeb Bush tried to buy the Marlins, but Jeffrey Loria turned him down

I think this would have been worse . . .

According to a source, Bush made a “large offer” to buy the team this offseason, but Loria told him he’s not selling. A second source said Bush had put together a group of wealthy investors, with Venezuelan media mogul Gustavo Cisneros among possibilities mentioned.

2. I think him buying it would have ruled out a run...

And since I'm not a Marlins fan, I wish it had happened.

3. Why would he?

The Marlins have been one of the most profitable franchises in MLB for quite some time. Even last year when they "broke the bank" they did pretty well.
