Los Angeles Dodgers‘ star Justin Turner had some phrases after studying Derek Jeter stepped down because the Miami Marlins’ CEO and half proprietor.

Jeter shocked the baseball world by revealing that the Marlins’ present path wasn’t the identical he says that they had in 2017 when he took over because the main baseball man in Miami.

“Scorching take: My sources, widespread sense and studying in between the strains, inform me that one in every of our video games biggest champions, Derek Jeter, is stepping away from a crew with among the finest younger pitching staffs within the sport as a result of possession isn’t dedicated to profitable and spending,” Turner stated.

There are a number of takeaways from his tweet.


Jeter Simply Needed To Compete

First, he sees the Marlins as among the finest up-and-coming forces within the Nationwide League, or a minimum of acknowledges that their pitching workers, which Jeter helped construct, is filled with promise.

Second, it has already been established that Jeter likes to win: maybe the Marlins, as Joel Sherman reported at present, didn’t need to give Jeter the cash they promised him to take a position on the roster, and that fueled his departure.

And third, with quantity two being a possible state of affairs that contributed for Jeter’s determination to step away, one in every of MLB’s greatest issues proper now could be evidenced: groups not attempting onerous sufficient to win.

When groups just like the Marlins don’t acknowledge their possibilities to compete as nice, they fully transfer away from any huge bills on the roster and will enter a tanking interval.
