Derek Jeter isn't putting a timetable on the turnaround he intends to engineer with the Miami Marlins, but the new co-owner is confident the franchise will get there. As a group led by Jeter and Bruce Sherman officially took over the Marlins from Jeffrey Loria on Tuesday, the legendary shortstop sketched out his vision for the team via one of his other ventures, The Players' Tribune. Atop the list was developing a "winning culture" inside a franchise that hasn't finished about .500 since 2009 or reached the playoffs since 2003. "The way I see it, doing things the right way, over and over, leads to sustained success," Jeter wrote. "I’m not just talking about wins and losses — winning games is very important to everyone — but also about developing a winning culture throughout the organization. That’s what is most important, and that journey starts today. It will not happen overnight. But our ownership group is focused on building a team that this community can be proud of." Jeter also said he believes in the organization and intends to celebrate the "culture and diversity" of the Miami community.
