Twitter was out in full force after news broke that the Miami Marlins had been purchased by a group led by New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter. Everyone was having fun with the news, and we combed the depths of the Twitter machine to find the best for you.
While Jeter is the focus of much of the praise and range, soon-to-be former Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria caught a lot of hate.
Someone at @PlayersTribune is getting fired for letting the Herald beat them on the Jeter-buying-the-Marlins scoop

If I was running The Players Tribune, I'd take the guy assigned to cover the Marlins sale and bust him back down to preps.

Jeter putting up 2.1% of money needed to buy Marlins but getting main say over baseball/business ops is a bigger steal than his Gold Gloves

Jeter gonna pay 25 mil & be the boss of a 1.2 Billion dollar sale, all time off the field player

Jeffrey Loria won two World Series titles while helming the Marlins and still may go down as the worst owner in MLB history. Impressive. https://t.co/Jgg1SLhhOy

As a #Mets fan, I truly hoped Jeffrey Loria would've owned the Marlins for eternity.

After over a decade since the Marlins owned Jeter and the Yankees in the '03 World Series, Jeter now owns the Marlins. #poetic

Wait 'til Jeter sees what they charge for a tiny coffee though

Oh goodie, we get to hear about Jeter nonstop again.

You think the first thing Jeter does is go make himself a 1997 World Series ring so he can have a 96, 97, 98, 99, 00 set?

Derek Jeter now owns the Marlins.. in related news, Chase Utley still owns the Mets.

New marlins ownerships first act should be taking a sledgehammer to that center field monstrosity.
