Jeb Bush out of the running for the Miami Marlins



Jeb Bush struck out a second time in his attempt to buy the Miami Marlins.

A partnership he formed with Wayne Rothbaum dropped out of the running, the Miami Herald and Associated Press reported yesterday, with a cause unclear except billionaire Rothbaum had gotten "impatient with the process after bidding $1.17 billion."

Bush had formerly partnered with Derek Jeter but their bid fell apart and Jeter is now vying for the team with Miami businessman Jorge Mas.
