Jeffrey Loria is apparently willing to fulfill every Miami Marlins fan’s dream and sell his fledgling franchise.
However, it’s unlikely to happen anytime soon because he’s floating the team’s price at $1.7 billion, according to Forbes:
A couple of years ago Loria reportedly was being contacted by several wealthy people to buy the team but had no interest in selling the Marlins.
Bankers say Luria has not hired an investment firm to work the deal and is likely just floating a $1.7 billion price tag.
The news comes days after we proudly (and accidentally) posted Loria’s active cell phone number on the internet, causing him to cancel the line after telling random callers to “fuck off.”
It is unquestionably Slice Miami’s greatest contribution to the community.
The Dodgers sold for $2 billion in 2012 but Miami’s nowhere near the market that Los Angeles is. Forbes valued Loria’s club at at $675 million in March, about 40 percent of Loria’s insane figure. Surely he’ll part for sizably less, right?
