Derek Jeter: 'Unpopular decisions' likely lie ahead for Marlins

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(MIAMI) -- Ginacarlo Stanton's future with the Miami Marlins may be up in the air. Derek Jeter and new controlling owner Bruce Sherman spoke publicly for the first time about their group's $1.2 billion purchase of the Marlins.

Jeter praised Stanton for his "unbelievable season" after Stanton lead the majors with 59 home runs and 132 RBIs but remained noncommittal when asked about Stanton's future with the team.

"We do have to rebuild the organization," Jeter said. "It starts with player development and scouting. We will build it from top down and bottom up."

The status of manager Don Mattingly and team president Mike Hill also have yet to be determined.
