Still, some insiders are scratching their heads over the terms of the purchase, which call for A-Rod and Lore taking an initial stake of just 20 percent, plunking down some $300 million with an option to buy the rest of the team within 18 months. That’s well short of the initial cash trove of nearly $2 billion that A-Rod, Lore and a cadre of investors had reportedly amassed for their Mets bid. Indeed, sources close to the situation said that while A-Rod and Lore can make the initial payment, they’re still scrambling to raise the $1.5 billion they need to close the deal, and aren’t yet close to that number.

Here’s the deal … Jeffrey was at Casa Amigos bar in Scottsdale when he “fell and hit his head,” according to police. They say Jordan then became combative with security who were attempting to escort him out of the bar to receive medical attention. Scottsdale PD, who were in the area for an unrelated call, were summoned to assist. Cops interviewed bar staff, and eventually deemed the incident “medical in nature,” not criminal. An ambulance was called to transport JJ to a hospital.
