The New York Yankees shook up the baseball world on Saturday when they agreed to a trade with the Miami Marlins for Giancarlo Stanton, the reigning National League MVP.
As recently as Friday afternoon, the Yankees seemed like a long shot, but talks intensified on Friday night after Stanton invoked his no-trade clause and rejected trades to both the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals.
After news of the trade broke on Saturday, Stanton’s new slugging teammate, Aaron Judge, sent Stanton a priceless message on Twitter. For those not familiar, it is a popular GIF from the movie, “Step Brothers.”
