    OK, so they got to dump a few million in salary, but Bruce is a pretty productive hitter and the guy they got back is the epitome of a non-prospect...I just see it kinda like the Martinez trade (though less extreme), the comp pick they could've gotten was probably more valuable than what they got back in this deal.

    Report: Jeff Loria agrees to sell the Marlins to Derek Jeter and Bruce Sherman for $1.2 billion

    The Miami Herald reports that Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has agreed to sell the team for $1.2 billion to a group led by New York businessman Bruce Sherman and, more interestingly for baseball fans, former Yankees star Derek Jeter. There are over a dozen other investors as well.

    The Herald reports that Major League Baseball is supposed to receive the formal agreement today.

    While Jeter has gotten all of the press until now, Sherman, a venture capitalist, is the money man and will be the “control person,” which is MLB’s term for the owner who makes all the decisions for the club. It is he who will be referred to as the team’s owner. Jeter, while wealthy by baseball player standards, could not carry the majority of cost (he’s reported to be contributing $25 million to the deal). He’ll be in charge of business operations and baseball operations, the Herald reports. How hands-on he will be remains to be determined.

    Stanton Hits 250...

    There’s not much we can say about Giancarlo Stanton‘s incorrigible home run habit that hasn’t been said before. On Friday night, he hit the 40-home run mark for the first time in his career and has been steadily increasing his tally since then, tacking on No. 41 during Saturday’s 4-3 win over the Rockies and adding No. 42 on Sunday.

    Stanton’s league-leading 42nd blast came on a 3-2 pitch from German Marquez in the third inning, tying the game 3-3 on an opposite-field 359-footer that just cleared the right field wall.

    his agent wants mlb to not have wet bases anymore because of his injury where his foot slipped off the base and jerked his knee and sent his body flying in the air awkwardly.

    Or maybe he should run the bases properly so he hits the front of the bag instead of the back. What an insufferable douche.

    it was a weird play as the pitcher almost ran him over. the whole footing part was just odd. he's lucky he didn't snap his acl and mcl in 4 places. that's how bad it looked initially.

    Stanton just crushed another HR... his 6th game in a row with a blast and #44.

    a decent Tier I pitcher in his heyday. He started to get rocked the last 3 years and his velocity on his fastball dropped to under 88-89 mph.

    The Sox are in the midst of a huge multi-day telethon they do every year for the Jimmy Fund...the kid who threw it was a random cancer survivor.

    A little more than random as he has pitched for them a few times before.

    LOL. Throwing out a ceremonial first pitch and "pitching for them" are not the same thing. Point being, he's a kid who beat cancer, which is awesome, but he's not a celebrity or anything...I'm sure Cat wasn't asking the question to find out the background on the kid's illustrious first pitch career.

    ^^ i didn't know who it was and thought it was a celebrity, but i didn't recognize them or the name on the back of the jersey. hey any cancer survivor is better than being a celebrity! you beat a disease! that's no acting there!
