Marlins would like to trade Giancarlo Stanton to Cardinals

Marlins would like to trade Giancarlo Stanton to Cardinals

The league's general managers have their annual meeting next week and Stanton will surely be a hot topic in the back rooms.

Imagine the number of home runs Giancarlo Stanton might hit if he played half his games at Fenway Park.

An earlier report from MLB.com Friday said the Red Sox had been in on "preliminary talks" on Stanton, along with the Cardinals, Phillies and Giants. The same can't quite be said for the rest of the group: the Giants have almost $167 million on the books for 2018, second only to the league-leading Dodgers, while the Red Sox rank fourth ($146.27 million) and the Cardinals rank sixth ($135.23 million).

The helpless woman repeatedly pleaded with the traffic constable to stop the speeding auto , since her infant was ill. The policeman reportedly also claimed to have a video to counter the other side's version.

But now, it appears that the St. Louis Cardinals have emerged as "prime players", if not clubhouse leaders, for Stanton. According to a November 9 report by FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, the Cardinals are "believed to be the team the Marlins would most like to make a deal" for Stanton, citing the organization's top pitching prospects in Alex Reyes, Sandy Alcantara and Jack Flaherty.

Second, any trade for Stanton has to deal with the massive $295 million over the next 10 seasons remaining on his contract. That said, Stanton can opt out of his contract following the 2020 season, at which point he'd only be due $77 million.

Heyman also cited the Phillies may be a "tough sell" to get Stanton to waive his full no-trade clause to join them, given they are likely in for "at least another year of rebuilding".
