“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.”

The debate over Jack Morris was one of the most contentious in Hall of Fame history, and while the writers ultimately rejected Morris, he's now going to Cooperstown -- and he'll be joined by Alan Trammell, his longtime Tigers teammate. Morris and Trammell were elected by the 16-person Modern Era Ballot committee. Trammell should have been elected long ago, a player who ranked eighth all time among shortstops in WAR. Morris doesn't have much of an analytic case with a 3.90 career ERA, but he does have Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. This time, that was enough to get him the support he needed.

Yankees

Nearly a year to the day that Yankees GM Brian Cashman anointed the Boston Red Sox “the Golden State Warriors of baseball,” it is Cashman who is on the verge of completing a Kevin Durant-type move for a team that was one game away from his sport’s championship last season in acquiring Giancarlo Stanton. Even with Stanton, the Yankees are expected to remain below the luxury tax, which means they could still very well be players for Manny Machado or, as crazy as it sounds, Bryce Harper during next winter's free agent bonanza.
