Juror who voted to acquit Aaron Hernandez tells @AntonioPlanas1 that defense lawyer offered to pay for bus to have jury attend funeral. https://t.co/7RmzxvoNFm

Boston HeraldThe jury that acquitted disgraced Patriot Aaron Hernandez of a 2012 double-murder was invited to his funeral yesterday in the former NFL star’s hometown of Bristol, Conn., a juror told the Herald.

“I was invited, but I decided ultimately not to go,” said Robert Monroe, one of 12 jurors who on April 14 acquitted Hernandez of the murders of Cape Verdean immigrants Daniel de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28. Both were living in Dorchester.

“I received a message, if any of the jurors wanted to go to the Aaron Hernandez funeral, that Jose Baez would rent a bus to get us back and forth,” Monroe told the Herald today.

Monroe, 27, of Boston, would not disclose in what form, or who was behind the invite, but did say he received the message last week. Baez was Hernandez’s high-profile attorney.

Monroe is unsure if any of the jurors attended the funeral.

… Monroe said he initially was taken aback by the invitation. But also, if Baez was behind it, he probably had good intentions.

“I actually asked a bunch of my friends, should I go, and they thought it was strange. Initially I wanted to go and maybe get some closure, this whole, confusing thing … his suicide … I would have been out of place, I’m not family or a friend,” he said.

As for Baez, Monroe said the lawyer may have wanted to acknowledge their commitment to the case.

“If it was Jose Baez who set this whole thing up, I could see he recognized that we were in the same room with this guy (Hernandez), for about two months. That perhaps some of us would want that, maybe some of the religious juror members.”

This sounds like a total Baez move. It’s pathetic. Of course he’s the one behind the invite. You won the case, we get it.

And, yes, it was probably because of their “commitment to the case,” which translates to the fact that they acquitted Hernandez. If they were committed to the case but found him guilty, no way Baez would have invited them, obviously.

Monroe made the right decision to not go. He would have been WAY out of place and it would have looked like a spotlight grab. At least he understands what is and is not socially acceptable, unlike Baez.

Derek Jeter is taking his talents to South Beach.

Bloomberg reports the ex-Yankees great and former Florida governor Jeb Bush have won an auction to buy the Marlins. The value of their bid is unknown.

Earlier Tuesday, Forbes said the Jeter-Bush ticket was “running around trying to look for money.” Other bidders included a team headed by Mitt Romney’s son, Tagg, and ex-Braves hurler Tom Glavine. Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria almost sold the team to the Kushner family two months ago, but the deal fell through. Around the same time, Loria was also rumored to be named Ambassador to France. Jared Kushner is married to Ivanka Trump and serves as a special advisor to the President.

The loathsome Loria, who once dropped the Marlins payroll to $20 million, could receive nearly $1 billion from the sale. He bought the Marlins in 2002 for $158 million. Forbes says the franchise is currently valued at $940 million.

While 75 percent of owners need to approve the ownership change, it likely won’t be a problem for Jeter and Bush. Assuming the sale goes through, the failed Republican presidential candidate will finally have something to clap about.

ESPN layoffs could be announced as early as tomorrow. (Ron Chenoy/USA Today Sports)

ESPN layoffs could be announced as early as tomorrow. (Ron Chenoy/USA Today Sports)

It’s been reported for some time ESPN will undergo massive layoffs this spring. But the damage might be worse than expected.

According to the Sporting News’ Michael McCarthy, the WorldWide Leader could slash 70 employees, most of whom are on-air talent or digital reporters. This is a larger figure than the original estimation of 40-50 cuts, which media reporter James Andrew Miller mentioned last month on Richard Deitsch’s Sports Illustrated podcast.

Citing multiple sources, McCarthy says ESPN’s campus was “eerily silent” Tuesday and that it’s the “dead calm before the storm.” ESPN staff writer Paul Kuharsky, who covers the Titans, was laid off Monday.

On Facebook Tuesday, Deitsch said the majority of layoffs could come as early as Wednesday. Disney holds its second-quarter earnings call May 9.

The Sporting News also reports many ESPN anchors are offering to take pay cuts so they can keep their jobs at the network. The company is reportedly offering talent the choice to walk away with 50 percent of their pay, or hold out for what they’re owed and likely be sidelined from TV.

It’s no secret that ESPN has been hemorrhaging subscribers. In February 2011, the network was available in more than 100 million households. As of December 2016, that number was down to 88.4 million. The decreased advertising revenue coming out of Bristol is one of the reasons why Disney, ESPN’s parent company, reported lower-than-anticipated first quarter earnings earlier this year.

On the Deitsch podcast, Miller also mapped out what he thinks ESPN’s new weekday lineup will look like. Following the re-airing of Neil Everett and Stan Verrett’s west coast “SportsCenter,” he expects Mike Greenberg to host his own variety show from 7-10 a.m. Miller said he believes Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre will get their own afternoon show, with the afternoon block of programming staying in place along with Jemele Hill and Michael Smith’s “SC:6.” Scott Van Pelt’s solo “SportsCenter” would still air at midnight following live game coverage.
