The Miami Marlins, currently sitting in a distant last place in the National League East, are hoping to receive at least partial credit on a trade they made after the July 31 MLB trade deadline, having forgotten to get it in on time.
“Our laptop froze,” Marlins CEO Derek Jeter said. “We swear we were going to get it done in time, just the laptop froze, our printer broke, couple of us were sick in the offices, I thought it was due Aug. 1. Lot of things piled up, we swear.”
The Marlins hope in receiving partial credit they could acquire at least or two young prospects from other teams, or at least cash, or if nothing else recognition that they tried.
