Why did MLB approve a foreign owner?
Derek Jeter, a lock for the douche bag Hall of Fame and part of the Miami Marlins ownership group, has declared that the team is based in the British Virgin Islands in order to avoid paying the City of Miami profits related to the sale of the team.
Why did MLB approve the sale of a team to a foreign entity? Baseball is an American game and the teams should be owned by Americans, not money-grubbing scum bags interested only in padding their bank account.
When will MLB force this maggot to sell the team?
Jeter is, was, and will always be a piece of crap.

The Ultimate Douche Bag and one of his scum bag partners founded Marlins Teamco last year just so they could avoid paying fees associated with the sale of the team. The group that actually purchased the team includes Bruce Sherman, Michael Jordan, and the Ultimate Douche Bag.
Sherman's company, Private Capital Management, has a history of making bad investments and business decisions. Sherman turned $31B in assets into $2.4B in 4 short years, and Jeter has turned the Marlins into a AA team in 4 short months.
That said, it will take epic mismanagement for MLB to force a sale. Frank McCourt had to bankrupt the Dodgers before MLB would step in so Jeter is going to be given a lot of rope before he hangs himself.
Jeter is nothing but Brian Cashman's little b i t c h and the Yankees will cover his backside for as long as they can because the Marlins have a coupel of players they may wind up needing later in the year.

The city of Miami built that failed venture a state of the art stadium using mostly tax dollars to finance its construction, yet they have the audacity to complain when the ownership structures itself to avoid paying back any taxes?
Should've just let that team relocate, the fairweather "fans" in South Beach will never support a baseball team.

They didn't - a company registered in the British Virgin Islands is minority owner. It's just a maneuver to try to get a trial moved to a Federal court.

He's not selling the team to anyone, you idiot. Its just a legal loophole to get out of paying taxes. They are still, for all intends and purposes, a US based and owned operation, they just don't pay taxes in the US.

The actual claim is one of the companies that comprise the Marlins is based in the BVI. This was a pre-existing structure before ownership was transferred.
