Derek Jeter: 'I Had No Feeling' About Trading Giancarlo Stanton to Yankees

The man said to be the most fearsome power hitter in baseball partied late Saturday and into the early hours of Sunday at hot Miami club Rockwell, which had teamed up with NY club 1Oak for three nights of Art Basel parties.

With their blockbuster trade, the New York Yankees took pressure off of both Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge.

Though Stanton owned a no-trade clause and reportedly turned down deals to the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals, some felt Jeter and the Marlins played their hand poorly.

On Saturday, the Yankees and Marlins agreed to a trade that sent Stanton, the reigning National League MVP, to the Yankees for infielder Starlin Castro and minor-leaguers Jorge Guzman and Jose Devers.

After helping the New York Yankees to five World Series titles, Derek Jeter might help them win another.

Stanton, who led the majors with 59 home runs and 132 RBI last season, wasn't interested in being part of the team's rebuilding process.

Take your chances on Stanton hitting more homers than Judge. He is still owed $295 million over the final 10 years of his mega-contract, and the Bombers will reportedly pick up $265 million.

It's "not crazy" to envision the team nabbing a second starting pitcher, likely via trade, before the club tries to complete a deal with Sabathia, to ensure rotation depth, the source said.

He was an All-Star previous year, as was Castro for the Yankees.

NY made the Headley trade (San Diego will absorb all of the $13 million on Headley's contract) in order to clear more room under the luxury tax threshold ($197 million), giving them a better opportunity to pursue a top-end starting pitcher or third baseman on the open market. He will make $77 million from 2018-2020, including $25 million next year. "NY is going to love him".

Yankees to re-sign Todd Frazier?

NY could trade third baseman Chase Headley ($13 million), expendable because of prospects Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar. But Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Greg Bird, Didi Gregorius, Brett Gardner, and Gleyber Torres have the potential to top that crew.
