MLB legend Alex Rodriguez, in order to turn around the world of baseball, wanted to extend his reach to the Queens after his retirement from the sport. Therefore, in 2020, he wanted to own the New York Mets, with ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez and billionaire Marc Lore. However, together, the three of them could not compete with Steve Cohen’s $2.4 billion bid. Hence, the deal slipped away from the hands of a-Rod and company.
