Miami Marlins Derek Jeter upset with HBO interviewer


The halo surrounding MLB star Derek Jeter ended when he was partly in charge of the Miami Marlins. Selling the team’s stars caused that the popularity of the renowned player was affected while specialists around the world criticized the move, as it has proven to diminish the squad in the current season.

Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter refuses to believe that he and the new group owner of the team are approaching this season with a stagnant mentality. Jeter, in an interview for HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," airing on Tuesday, was questioned whether the team had that mindset after swapping their best players in the offseason.

"Tanking? What is ... tanking?" Jeter said. When Gumbel defined it as "not doing everything possible to win the games on ... every day", Jeter, who smiled throughout the exchange, went on the offensive. "We're trying to win the games every day”, Jeter said of the Marlins, who are 5-15 after exchanging stars Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna and Dee Gordon during the offseason. You all certainly remembered the storm. " “When you take the field, you have an opportunity to win each and every day. Each and every day. You never tell your team that they’re expected to lose. Never.”

While Bryant tried to intervene, Jeter continued, as ESPN recently reported. “Now, you can think — now — now, I can’t tell you how you think. Like, I see your mind. I see that’s how you think. I don’t think like that. That’s your mind working like that.”. We have two different mi– I can’t wait to get you on the golf course, man. We got– I mean, I can’t wait for this one.... You're mentally weak." During the interview, when Gumble tried to ask Jeter if he really expected the Marlins to be contenders "as currently configured," Jeter used a different Word.

"You’d never tell your players that you are expected to lose. You don’t do that. You should take that as a slap in the face as a player. You should take that as a slap in the face.” Jeter, who said he was "enjoying what he was doing" with the Marlins, was asked again if he expects the Marlins to compete. “I do. I do. If I don’t believe with the– in the players that we have on the field, who’s going to believe in them?” Let us remember that Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria agreed to sell the franchise for $ 1.2 billion to a group led by New York businessman Bruce Sherman and former New York Yankees star Derek Jeter. Jeter was supposed to give the Marlins cachet and a former player universally respected in baseball. However, as soon as the new management began selling the team’s stars, furious analysts and fans criticized him vigorously.
