Giancarlo Stanton says he has no 'crazy bad blood' with Derek Jeter

Giancarlo Stanton says he has no 'crazy bad blood' with Derek Jeter

His slider, which Boone said wasn't great in the loss to Boston, was the final pitch in four of his eight strikeouts, with the other four punchouts coming on fastballs of at least 98 miles per hour. "I'm just being honest with you guys, so that's why I'm not going".

Despite hitting two homers in his first game in Yankee pinstripes, a couple of five-strikeout games and a 7-for-42 hitting start stirred up plenty of venom directed at Stanton from the local fan base.

"I went to the Spring Training game when we played NY", he said.

Stanton was 0 for 3 with two more strikeouts, a bases-loaded foulout, a walk and a hit by pitch, prompting more boos from restless Yankees fans.

"I don't think there is any insane bad blood besides what you guys stirred up", Stanton told reporters over the weekend during the Yankees' series in Detroit, referring to the reports that the Marlins threatened to keep him during their rebuilding process if he didn't accept proposed trades to the Giants or Cardinals.

Beginning a nine-game trip, the last-place Marlins dropped to 4-12. "You struggle, you pay". It's a day-in, day-out place.

The last time Jeter stepped foot in Yankee Stadium he was having his number retired and his plaque adorned in the stadium's famed Monument Park last May. During past spring trainings, the Yankees' former captain always was invisible except for a Captain's Camp dinner with prospects as a favor to Gary Denbo, then the organization's director of player development and now the Marlins' director of player development and scouting. "We have to grow those numbers, but I think reporting it that way gives us an opportunity to show some growth over time". Jeter, of course, played 20 seasons with the Yankees, retiring following the 2014 campaign. "So I was disappointed the same way the fans would be or Mr. Steinbrenner would be disappointed".


"It's like growing up in the same family with the same parents", Mattingly said. "We both came through the system".

"I mean, I don't think there's any insane bad blood besides what (the media) stirred up", Stanton said. It's the only thing and you don't really have any money in the bank. He is hitting.295 with six RBIs and his first home run for the Marlins will be the 100th of his career.

Caleb Smith, who was part of another trade with the Yankees, starts for the Marlins. He allowed five runs, five hits and five walks. Shuck had been recalled from Triple-A New Orleans prior to the game.

Coming into this series, Aaron Judge was the Yankees' top hitter with 18 hits, 13 runs and nine RBI, while Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorious had 14 hits apiece.

New York RHP Sonny Gray worked on mechanical adjustments to his windup before the game.

Catcher J.T. Realmuto is moving closer to being added to the major league roster after a back injury has sidelined him since March 11.

I'd like to bet against the Yankees right now, but at home against the Marlins is not the right spot.
