The New York Yankees are once again the “Bronx Bombers” of Major League Baseball. Yesterday, the Yanks acquired NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton in a blockbuster trade that will surely make them a force in the American League and a favorite to win the World Series in 2018.
The New York Yankees and Miami Marlins have agreed to a trade that would send reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton to the Bronx, according to ESPN and multiple reports Saturday.
Yankees infielder Starlin Castro would go to Miami as part of the deal, a source confirmed to ESPN after it was first reported by The Associated Press. New York would also send prospects Jorge Guzman and Jose Devers to the Marlins in the trade, according to multiple reports and first reported by the New York Post.
Stanton, 28, is owed $295 million over the next 10 years. The Yankees would be on the hook for $265 million of that, with the Marlins kicking in $30 million as part of the deal, according to multiple reports and first reported by The Athletic.
After the Stanton trade made the rounds on the Internet, Yankees slugger Aaron Judge took to Twitter and posted this hilarious GIF from the movie Step Brothers on his feed.
