Jennifer Lopez and former Yankee Alex Rodriguez are among the bidders in the New York Mets sale auction.
The couple have put together a financial consortium to make a bid on the team. The Mets are being sold by the Wilpon family and the bidding deadline is today. Lopez and Rodriguez reportedly offered 1.7-billion dollars.
The fact that the power couple are both from New York City sweetens the pot a little bit. The offers will now be evaluated by the Wilpons, who reportedly hope to close a deal by the fall.
