Stanton most likely won't accept a trade to Boston or St Louis, wants to end up in California. Looks like the Giants are pushing the hardest.

I have to say I am fully enjoying all of the "we don't need you on this championship team anyway" hot takes from Cardinal fans reacting to Stanton not wanting to go there

Big fan of them just making up character issues as a reason why they don't want him.

Boras has spent the day at the GM meetings cutting WWE promos for his clients, it's pretty amazing. He's mostly spitting nonsense, but he's still going to make them a billion dollars this winter.

@jonmorosi

Source: #STLCards and #Marlins officials discussed Giancarlo Stanton trade concepts today at the @MLB General Managers Meetings in Orlando. @MLBNetwork

This was not very long ago. Y'know, just so they can get everything all figured out and Stanton to just be like, 'Nah'.

Yup, the joys of a full NTC. They can have all the talks they'd like.


It also came out today that Jeter has left Stanton completely in the dark over this. So I can't imagine they think he'll just drop his demands of where he wants to go for an organization that isn't willing to work with him.

Ohtani won't be posted until early December, due to the posting agreement not being agreed upon, yet. If this follows history, agreement was made in 2014 on Dec 10, Tanaka was signed in late Jan.

I really don't want the team to get Stanton, they have enough issues to worry about then trying to land him.

Either way the Marlins are kinda fucked, with having to move that salary and only a few teams Stanton wanting to go to.

The Marlins ownership group's lack of cash is being under reported in all this. They're going to end up getting eh prospects to just clear the deal. They straight up can't afford to keep him.

Maitan looks like a given. And then anyone else they were directly involved with is a possibility. Also looks like they'll be treated as if they went over the IFA limit, so they can only sign guys for the $300k bonus.

Beltran would definitely bridge that supposed gap between the players and manager that they used as the reason to let Girardi walk. He was the main active player who pushed for Spanish speaking players to receive a translator like Asian country players do. While also being their translator with the media in the meantime. And the English speakers all love him.

Also hope the interview expansion gets Cone an interview.
