And what makes you so sure that this piece of shit Jeter knows how to do this?  He's never done it before.  So far he has botched everthing he's done including this trade. 

he hasnt botched anything.  the pr isnt great, but who gives a fuck about pr.  he is overhauling a terrible franchise and trying to create a new relationship with the community. He could probably explain moves better, but i could really care less about PR, i want to see a winning baseball team put together competently and with an ability to win consistently and they have shown with their moves so far that that is what they are trying to do.

 

Also, Jeter isnt running the baseball operations side.  Denbo and Mike Hill are so you can stop blaming jeter for baseball moves.  He's not even going to the winter meetings.   And im not sure how jeter botched this trade when the marlins were put into a no win situation because Loria gave Stanton a NTC.

"And then there are the Marlins. What else can you call this trade other than an abject disaster for a franchise seemingly committed to being a pointless mess for the rest of its existence? Jeter can’t be faulted for the no-trade clause that Stanton used to blow up his plans; that was the parting gift of Jeffrey Loria, steadfast in his devotion to screwing the fans of south Florida. But no one forced Jeter to work out trades before even knowing if Stanton would approve them, and no one made him offload his franchise player despite Stanton’s refusals destroying Miami’s leverage. Conspiracy theories will follow Jeter trading his best player to his old team right after taking over, but it’s not that complicated. This is just an owner completely in over his head getting worked by someone far savvier.

Pity, then, Marlins fans, who have stuck by this team through firesale after firesale only to be rewarded with yet another, and this time by an ownership group that looks poised to do less for the franchise than even Loria. By dealing Stanton, Jeter and company have showed that all they care about is the bottom line, not the product on the field. The result will be a completely awful and unwatchable team that should, to Jeter’s great joy, cost nothing. The Marlins will be burned down for the insurance money under the guise of rebuilding and getting rid of onerous debts that the owners would claim impeded winning. But a team in one of America’s largest media markets shouldn’t have to sell off its best assets for pennies on the dollar or punt on fielding even a nominally competitive squad. This is a terribly sad day for baseball in Miami, and a shameful moment for MLB, which never should have allowed Jeter and Bruce Sherman to buy the team."
