Jeter defends Miami's handling of Stanton trade

Marlins owner Derek Jeter scoffed at the notion that the Yankees got a sweetheart deal when they acquired National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton for Starlin Castro and two prospects..

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

“So little in return? You mean, in terms, of quantity?” Derek Jeter said when asked about receiving Starlin Castro and two Single-A players for Giancarlo Stanton. “We have people in place whose job is to know about talent and I think they would disagree with you. We think we got some good prospects in return and now it is up to us as an organization to help develop them. You are right, it is the National League Most Valuable player, I don't care what prospects you get back, they won't be household names for our fan base.”

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Marlins COO Derek Jeter on how he handled the Giancarlo Stanton trade talks: “There is not anything I would've done differently throughout this process,” Jeter said. Jeter added the deal gives the Marlins "flexibility" and that he felt that Stanton did not want to be part of a rebuild.

Trade grades: Did Yankees ace Giancarlo Stanton deal?

With the most imposing middle of the order in the league, the expectation is now World Series or bust for New York. And while fans won't like that Derek Jeter dealt to his former team, that doesn't mean he failed his first test.
