Social media reacts to the New York Yankees reportedly acquiring Giancarlo Stanton from Miami Marlins

Just a few months after the Yankees came within one game of going to the World Series after what was supposed to be a rebuilding season, the team just got some major fire power when reports came out that the team had a deal in place to acquire NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton from Marlins.

 

Social media went crazy and people found it highly suspect that, the new ownership group fronted by Derek Jeter, sent the one of the best players in the entire league to his former team.

Fresh off his 59 home run season, Stanton rejected trades to the Giants and Cardinals and once that happened, the Yankees saw a grand opportunity and Jeter came through in the clutch once again. Stanton hit .281/.376/.631 (165 OPS+) in 2017.
