Derek Jeter defends Marlins' handling of Giancarlo Stanton trade

On the same day that the Giancarlo Stanton trade to the New York Yankees became official, sources tell FanRag Sports that another member of the Miami Marlins has generated interest amongst other teams at the MLB Winter Meetings.

The slugger said the deal that brought him to NY started to materialize Thursday night, when he learned about it from his agent.

"This is going to be a great new chapter in my life and my career so I want to thank everyone involved to get this done", Stanton said.

Giancarlo Stanton is the reigning NL MVP, but he couldn't wait to get out of Miami and avoid another rebuilding project with the Marlins.

"The goal is to win", he said. They will pay the Yankees $30 million out of the $295 million Stanton is owed over the next decade - a subsidy reportedly contingent on the Stanton not opting out of his contract after the 2020 season.

He has no leverage with whatever fan base the Marlins have, no love stored up from exploits done in front of them.

"When I reached out, they were in the midst of dealing with the Yankees at that point", Dombrowski said here at the Winter Meetings.

Grand Rapids chief: Handcuffing of girl, 11, was disturbing
As for Honestie and her family, they're still upset, filing a complaint against the Grand Rapids Police Department. The cops then handcuffed the girl, patted her down and put her in the back of a police auto , Hodges said .

Neither pitcher Jorge Guzman nor infielder Jose Devers was considered a top prospect.

"Contrary to popular belief, we were not stuck with this deal", Jeter said. "The way they wanted to go was to subtract, so I let that be known that I didn't want to be part of another rebuild". "This was the best deal out of the three for our organization".

Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner had previously stated a plan to reduce payroll below $197 million next season. "We're comfortably under the threshold with some more money to spend, whenever we deem we want to spend it".

"I do feel like it's a really good problem that we have", Boone said. With a deep lineup, no one player has to shoulder all of the pressure.

When the Stanton deal came into focus late last week, Cashman called Judge and explained how the playing time might work.

The New York Yankees lineup got deeper with the acquisition of Stanton and it appears that more hitters could be added in the coming days. "This is exciting. If could you pull that off, that would be incredible". It was a major weakness for the Yankees last season as the team's DHs combined for a.235 average, .327 on-base percentage and.429 slugging percentage.
