Giancarlo Stanton Calls the Marlins a 'Circus' in Farewell IG

The Marlins may have new ownership but they’re still the joke franchise we’ve come to know. The organization had yet another lowlight this past weekend when they gave NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton to the Yankees for Starlin Castro and two prospects just to get out of the slugger’s fat contract.

A better deal probably could have been had if the Marlins played their hand differently (maybe actually talking with Giancarlo or trading away all his teammates first) but Derek Jeter and the new brass went ahead with this underwhelming move.
Giancarlo said goodbye to his Marlins fans on Monday, and he couldn’t help but take a shot at his former team in the process.

The caption (author bolded the Marlins dig):

Thank you to the Marlins Organization & the amazing city of Miami! The city that adopted me at 17 with open arms. I’ve loved this place over the years and it will always be special to me. I appreciate All my teammates & coaching Staff that battled day in and day out I feel for u fans, you’ve stuck with me as we’ve shared some roller coaster years. I’ve always tried to be as professional as possible during the unprofessional , circus times there! Regardless of the Ups&downs, I’ve grown n learned a lot as a Person/Player. So for that I give thanks, I hope there are better days in Miami . The city & the people are too great not to be! Stay positive & much love ! ————————————— As for NEW YORK CITY !!! I am officially a YANKEE🔥🔥 I can’t wait to spark this new chapter in my life, & keeping it Lit 🗽

Not sure how you should feel about that if you’re a Marlins fan. The guy basically acknowledges that the franchise is a hellhole and ends the note by celebrating his move to the Yankees with flame emojis. Oh, and it’s only going to get worse for Marlins supporters because there are more quality players to trade:
– Christian Yelich
– Marcell Ozuna
– Newly acquired Starlin Castro
