Giants reach deal with Marlins to acquire Giancarlo Stanton

Giants reach deal with Marlins to acquire Giancarlo Stanton

"I mean from everything we've heard he really does want to play on the West Coast". It only makes sense that he'd want to go to a victor. All of that's important because.

It seems that the Giancarlo Stanton era could be coming to an end in Miami. However, many of them won't be able to take on his contract.

The temptation is to consider that a distinction without a difference, but it does provide the player with a bit of "cover" when it comes any potential public backlash against the scuttled trade. There are plenty teams who need help in the outfield.

Is your team one of the seven in the running to sign Shohei Ohtani? He wants out of Miami because he doesn't feel they will be winning the World Series anytime soon. "But our terms with the Marlins are clear". Nearly all of them have revolved around the Giants, Cardinals, and Dodgers and the likelihood of each team acquiring the Miami slugger.




According to Craig Mish of Sirius XM, the full trade offer from the Giants includes $250 million of Stanton's contract and top prospects Tyler Beede, Heliot Ramos, Chris Shaw, and Christian Arroyo. However, the feeling is that he will probably approve the deal. When asked specifically about absorbing the majority of that contract, Evans didn't address it.

The Marlins are trying to trade Stanton, the NL MVP, and the Giants and Cardinals are the frontrunners. That's perhaps why the Dodger front office is "slow playing" this to an extent.

Todd Frazier would make a lot of sense for the Mets at third, especially since David Wright is not someone they can rely on any longer. To what degree can the Marlins be cornered into paying more of that $295 million that Stanton is owed if those San Fran and St. Louis frameworks fall apart?
