But it's their next series that has CEO Derek Jeter atypically off his game. "I think it's your natural instinct when you move in somewhere to try to get it set up as quickly possible". Many games had a noticeably lower number of fans in the stands than the official attendance reported.
"We're not happy with it", Jeter said.
Stanton hugged Mattingly before the Marlins played the Yankees at Steinbrenner Field in a spring training game March 18. "Look, I want to get into the flow of the season as I know the players do - the routine of it - as much we can".
Jeter confirmed that the organization has changed its counting method and running the team with "honesty". That figure was smaller even than the 6,960 that turned out the same day to see the Marlins' Double A affiliate, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, for their home opener.

Still, given the small contribution of the cancer business to Shire's overall profits, Deutsche Bank analysts said this was unlikely to be a deal breaker.
"After the first homestand, our turnstile numbers were higher this year than they were last year", Jeter said. Come Monday, the Marlins will be on the road for a while - all the way until late April, believe it or not.
"Our number one priority is how we can increase the attendance in this market", Jeter said. "They're not really beating us down (on Sunday), but more like a couple (runs) here, another one, another one, another one". "We have to win these games". It's going to be a while before Jeter gets them to a competitive level again. "The guys are battling and playing hard but we gotta find ways to win more games". Obviously he's involved with the Marlins now in a completely different capacity, but I think he's earned the right to step away and not show up for every function here and there that people maybe expect him to be.
"It's still early", Jeter said.
"I think ingress and egress is an issue that we're addressing", Jeter said.
Famed 'Boys Don't Cry' lawyer immolates self in ecology protest
Mr Teena's story was the subject of the 1999 film Boys Don't Cry and Hilary Swank won an Oscar for her portrayal of him. He was an urban gardener at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden , running a large-scale composting operation.
If that deprived Stanton of getting used to his new surroundings at Yankee Stadium, his acclimation to NY has also taken place on the fly.
Quotable: "I mean, I don't think there's any insane bad blood beside what (the media) stirred up", Stanton said. We're developing a winning culture. No one's happy about the results.But I like the approach.
"I went to a spring training game when we played NY, but it would be an awkward situation for me to actually go to Yankee Stadium", Jeter said. Sometimes it takes a little bit of time, but I like how the guys are at least going about their business.
