It’s been reported for a couple of months now that Jeffrey Loria wants to sell the Miami Marlins, with a recent report being that he wants to close a deal by the end of 2017. Multiple potential buyers have been mentioned but there has been no real traction on a deal yet.

Throw this into the rumor mill:

The obvious joke if Jeb buys the Marlins is that the 2018 team slogan would be “Miami Marlins: Please clap.” But really, that’s a better bit of fan service and marketing than Loria has ever done.  He sues his own fans on a regular basis for cryin’ out loud.

No one wanted to put another Bush in the White House, but at least the last one who owned a baseball team was pretty popular when he, you know, stuck to baseball. Kindly entreating them to applaud would be a major improvement over the current regime.
