Former Yankees star Alex Rodriguez and actress Jennifer Lopez have offered up $1.7 billion to buy the New York Mets.
A-Rod and J-Lo put together a group to bid on the National League Team, which is being sold by the Wilpon family.
The bankers handling the sale had set a Thursday deadline for interested parties to submit a bid.
A-Rod and J-Lo were both born in New York City.
The New York Post also reports that the owners of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils threw in a bid.
