Derek Jeter's first big move as Miami Marlins owner could be to stick it to his old franchise.
As every Major League Baseball general manager gets together in Orlando, Florida this week, the status of Giancarlo Stanton is the hottest topic. With the Marlins looking to clear salary and rebuild, baseball's best slugger is likely the first domino to fall this offseason.
When executives and media touched down over the weekend, the hottest rumor in the sport involved Jeter and an old Yankees rival--the Boston Red Sox.
According to a report from the Miami Herald--and backed up by The Boston Herald--the Marlins and Red Sox have had discussions about a deal that would send Stanton's massive power and contract to the defending AL East champions.
