NEW YORK – On the night the New York Yankees retired his iconic No. 2 jersey, Derek Jeter was asked about his bid to buy the Miami Marlins.

"There's nothing to report on that, absolutely nothing," Jeter told the New York Daily News. "I think sometimes stories and people get ahead of themselves, and there was a story that got way ahead of themselves a few weeks back. If there's something to report, I'll let you know."

Jeter was referring to a premature report by Bloomberg that stated the group he led along with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush had already won the auction to negotiate the purchase of the Marlins.
