In fact, the two-time All-Star and 2015 National League batting champion was blunt in his assessment of the Miami Marlins' offseason moves.
"It's terrible," Gordon told the Sun-Sentinel. "It's almost -- I'm not even going to say almost. It's embarrassing. It's embarrassing. I don't want to bash anyone, but what's happened is not good."
The Marlins' new ownership group, which includes Derek Jeter, has already traded NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton to the New York Yankees and fellow All-Star outfielder Marcell Ozuna to the St. Louis Cardinals as well as Gordon.
"No disrespect to anybody, but those are your best three players. You let them go," the 29-year-old Gordon said. "Not because they underperformed. But because of something you (new ownership) can't take care of."
Outfielder Christian Yelich and catcher J.T. Realmuto reportedly are unhappy and are seeking trades.
