Rodriguez and Lopez are planning to put up a relatively small percentage of cash necessary to make a deal. However, they are actively looking for big investors who can invest somewhere between $25-$50 million.

They would then seek financing from a bank for the remaining balance. A-Rod and J Lo have reportedly retained JPMorgan Chase to raise capital.

The Mets have been mismanaged for years. They are not the Yankees, which have a status as the baseball crown jewel of the Empire State. That means there is only upside if the celebrity duo aligns with the organization.

The Mets are reportedly worth around $2.4 billion. However, many others have valued the team in the $1.5 billion range. Hedge fund manager Steve Cohen was previously in negotiations to buy the Mets in a deal valued at $2.6 billion, however, that fell apart in February.

If A-Rod is a former New York Yankees player and J Lo is from the Bronx. Not the typical NYC ownership look with rival boroughs but a facelift is a facelift.
