The Miami Marlins shook up the baseball world this past weekend when the team agreed to trade Giancarlo Stanton to the New York Yankees. According to former Yankees shortstop and current Marlins CEO and part-owner Derek Jeter, the organization didn’t have much choice.

Jeter addressed the media Monday at the start of MLB’s Winter Meetings in Orlando, explaining that the 2017 NL MVP didn’t want to be a part of Miami’s rebuilding efforts.

“Prior to us acquiring the organization, we had heard that Giancarlo had said that he would not want to be part of a rebuild. Those sentiments were relayed to us after we took over the organization. Understand, you don’t want to have someone that does not want to be part of the organization. He signed his contract, a well-deserved contract. He had a no-trade clause in his contract. He earned it. He negotiated it. From that standpoint, it is what it is,” Jeter told reporters.

“We met with him. We talked to him. We spoke to him about our plans going forward, and he wanted to continue to continue his career elsewhere.”

Jeter said he related to Stanton that #Marlins wanted him "to be with us," but that Stanton wanted to move along. #yankees

Mike Hill said initially went to 4 clubs Stanton expressed would waive no trade for: #Yankees #Dodgers #Cubs #Astros. No traction. So engaged others/worked out deals with #SFGiants #Stlcards. Stanton refused, so re-engaged with others and that is when #Yankees deal was forged

Hey Twitter, I asked Jeter what his feelings were about trading Stanton to the Yankees, Jeter said he had "no feelings" about trading him to the Yankees. It was just the best of the three options. (Of course, Stanton vetoed the other two.)
