Yankees to land Marlins' Stanton - experiences

Yankees to land Marlins' Stanton - experiences

With other possible trade options evaporating, the Marlins talked extensively with the New York Yankees on Friday about Giancarlo Stanton, as Miami continues to scramble for ways to reduce its massive debt, according to sources.

Miami also sent NY $30 million to help offset Stanton's staggering contract, which will pay him $295 million over the next 10 years. There won't be a more devastating trio in baseball than Stanton, Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez. The center fielder is owed about $68.4 million through 2020, and like Stanton, he has a full no-trade clause.

Throughout the Stanton trade saga, the Marlins dealt from a position of weakness.

NY exited the American League Championship Series at the hands of the Houston Astros this year, but the Yankees are the early favorites to win the World Series (5-1), according to OddsShark.

Said Cardinals chairman and CEO Bill DeWitt Jr.: "We had an agreement to acquire Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins, subject to him waiving his no-trade clause". Stanton led the major leagues in home runs this season with 59, in runs-batted-in (132), extra-base hits (91) and slugging percentage (.631).




Stanton had a no-trade clause in his contract and last week turned down prospective deals to St. Louis and San Francisco. The deal is sure to get a legion of fans that already dislike the Yanks railing against Jeter sending Stanton to his old team.

The Yankees have wanted all along to stay under the $197 million luxury tax threshold next season, and the money they received from the Marlins should help them do that.

In eight seasons with the Marlins he is a.268 hitter with 267 home runs and 672 RBIs.

The primary benefit of the trade for the Marlins is financial relief.
