    AP source: Jeter doesn't have money needed to buy Marlins

    A person familiar with the negotiations says Derek Jeter has told the Miami Marlins he still doesn't have the necessary money to buy the team but is close.

Edinson Volquez came apart in the fifth inning when he gave up four of his six earned runs. Marcell Ozuna homered again for Miami, his 19th. This is your kind reminder to Vote Ozuna into the All-Star game, which (as you will recall) is in Miami this year. He is currently fifth in the outfield balloting while the third (read: final starting) and fourth spots are being held down by the less deserving Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist. He needs has to close a gap of a little over 100,000 votes in the next eight days. You can vote five
