According to sources (ok, it’s Rovell. But he’s probably not wrong), a group of investors headlined by Alex Rodriguez, Jenifer Lopez, and billionaire Mike Repole (founder of BodyArmor) are making a serious bid for the New York Mets. [CLICK HERE TO READ ORIGINAL POST]
Right after this was reported, Mr. Stool Presidente himself tweeted that he was “anonymously” contacted about being involved with a certain professional sports franchise that could soon switch hands.
Portnoy already has Barstool Sports involved in bringing NASCAR to another level.
This would make a lot of sense for the group to involve Dave and Barstool in the potential purchase of the Mets, whether it is as an investor or a sponsor/partner.
Alex Rodriguez already has ties to Barstool, as he co-hosts The Corp podcast with Big Cat. Mike Repole has been featured on Barstool Sports Shark Tank style show, Big Brain.
Either way, with or without Portnoy, a new ownership group would be welcomed by Mets fans.
