Yankees reportedly working on trade for Giancarlo Stanton — MLB Hot Stove

Yankees reportedly working on trade for Giancarlo Stanton — MLB Hot Stove

As for the merits of Stanton, they're obvious. The Marlins are obviously creating a gap at second base. But Stanton complicated that by invoking his no-trade clause to quash completed trades with the Cardinals and Giants, who both announced that fact Friday and thus removed themselves from this sweepstakes.

Neither of those teams is close to a deal as of Friday. It's an incredibly tough situation, and the Marlins really can't afford to screw this up. In a way, the Marlins trading Giancarlo Stanton resembles the Rangers trading Alex Rodriguez. They can kick-start the rebuild with some prospects. As such, the rumor mill is buzzing with potential free agent signings - namely Japanese star Shohei Ohtani - and trade talks, especially regarding Giancarlo Stanton and now Manny Machado. Louis would have taken on upwards of $250 million of Stanton remaining salary as well.

Matt Clapp: I'll go with the Colorado Rockies. "We felt this was a great landing spot for him, but it was not meant to be".

Nothing is finalized yet, but the potential trade would pair Stanton, who slugged 59 home runs and 132 RBIs in 2017, with Aaron Judge, who slammed 56 dingers of his own. They also got better-than-expected production from young starting pitchers German Marquez, Kyle Freeland, and Antonio Senzatela.

Late Thursday night, Craig Mish of SiriusXM added that Stanton would also approve trades to the Chicago Cubs or Houston Astros. So it's possible the Yankees - or Dodgers, who also have luxury tax concerns - can make this new Stanton dynamic work within their long-term budget goals. The Reds' Billy Hamilton, the Pirates' Andrew McCutchen, and the Red Sox Jackie Bradley Jr. have all been linked to the Giants at some point in the recent past. Do they need to tear it down completely?

I get it. Marlins fans are so sick of hearing this, rewind after rewind, there aren't many Marlins fans anymore. Sure, they returned to the NLCS last season, but they were dispatched rather easily by the Dodgers. General manager Bobby Evans said Stanton was thoughtful in their meeting about not comparing the Giants to other teams in pursuit. Are they desperate enough to do anywhere near that much between swallowing contracts of players like Castro and Headley and eating a chunk of Stanton's contract?

Into that reduced fray steps the Yankees. The Marlins won't get equal value back in any trade for their star player. And the minor-league system that a franchise like the Marlins must ride to supply talent is broken. The Giants are a few pieces away from being legitimate contenders.
