Red Sox going after Giancarlo Stanton?

Share

Recently, MLB.com reported that the Red Sox were among a group of four teams known to be interested in a trade for Stanton. The Phillies could be the most surprising team on this list. While the club will aim to sure-up its pitching staff and perhaps discuss trades surrounding one of their utility infielders, Maikel Franco, Freddy Galvis and/or Cesar Hernandez, improving the offense will also always be up for consideration.

Imagine the number of home runs Giancarlo Stanton might hit if he played half his games at Fenway Park. Joining the Phillies in being linked to Stanton are the Boston Red Sox, St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants.

But now, it appears that the St. Louis Cardinals have emerged as "prime players", if not clubhouse leaders, for Stanton.

Israel has denied the statement about the downed Russian drone
Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israel viewed the incident gravely and would respond to any provocation. Both Iranian and Hezbollah forces have been backing Syrian President Bashar Assad in the Syrian civil war.

A new report on Saturday takes the rumor a bit further.

Of course, any deal involving Stanton involves two key issues: the massive amount of money still owed to him, and his full no-trade rights, which allow him to accept or veto any trade the Marlins are able to hammer out. At this point it seems likely he gets traded this winter.

Morosi points out that the Phillies are uniquely suited to take on the remainder of Stanton's 13-year, $325 million contract, as they now have a $6.35 million payroll heading into the 2018 season.
