“So little in return? You mean, in terms, of quantity?” Derek Jeter said when asked about receiving Starlin Castro and two Single-A players for Giancarlo Stanton. “We have people in place whose job is to know about talent and I think they would disagree with you. We think we got some good prospects in return and now it is up to us as an organization to help develop them. You are right, it is the National League Most Valuable player, I don't care what prospects you get back, they won't be household names for our fan base.”

So the Jets have dropped six of their last eight, their unofficial team MVP (Josh McCown) could be done for the year and now they have to go on the road again to face the Saints. Worried about the team getting demoralized? "No, not at all," Steve McLendon said. "Why would we worry about the team falling apart or anything like that?"

Jets C Wes Johnson said Josh McCown became the team leader on the first day of OTAs in the spring, when he organized a players-only practice. Now McCown (fractured left hand) could be lost for the final three games. Said Johnson: "I have all the confidence in the world in Bryce (Petty) ... I'm not worried about him at all. I'm actually excited for the opportunity he could get."

Marlins COO Derek Jeter on how he handled the Giancarlo Stanton trade talks: “There is not anything I would've done differently throughout this process,” Jeter said. Jeter added the deal gives the Marlins "flexibility" and that he felt that Stanton did not want to be part of a rebuild.
