RE: Jeter/Bush buying the Marlins
It was just a bad idea to put sports teams in Florida. Just because you look at a spreadsheet and see a few million people live around a city doesn't mean it's a better market than somewhere else. Spring Training should be Florida's baseball niche as well as the Florida League. It's full of retirees and immigrants otherwise, at least most of everything from Orlando and south.

I am still amazed that North Carolina doesn't have a MLB team.

The Braves' new ballpark cost over $670 million.

The Marlins, who are probably one of the least-valuable MLB franchises, just sold for $1.3 billion.

So to buy a team and build a new MLB-quality ballpark requires people who have (or can raise) about $2 billion, plus an existing owner who wants to sell to someone who wants to move the franchise, plus MLB approving the move, plus a satisfactory place to play while the new team's ballpark is being built.

There's no place in North Carolina that has enough of a market to support a team. Maybe if Charlotte didn't have two teams it could work.
