Giants, Marlins put public onus on Giancarlo Stanton if deal falls through

Share

Stanton has been stuck on a losing team for his entire career.

Morosi reported on December 3 the Marlins have agreed to the "general framework" of trades proposed by the Giants and St. Louis Cardinals for Stanton, but both deals were being held up while Stanton decides if he will agree to a trade.

Miami's motivation for shopping Stanton is, of course, the $295 million he has left on the 13-year, $325 million contract he originally signed in November of 2014.

An official involved in the investigation told Reuters news agency the settlement agreed by the prince "included admitting corruption involving known cases".

Stanton's a native of Southern California, and he makes his offseason home in the Hollywood Hills. Stanton is Stanton, MLB's preeminent dinger monster, a lineup-changing force whose only equal offensively this winter is J.D. Martinez, who will also be expensive, is older, and comes without the ability to play defense. That's still the case even if the rival Giants land Stanton (and Shohei Ohtani, for that matter).

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. Though he has an opt-out clause for 2020, Miami doesn't want to chance it.

On the Dodgers' side of things, they've been over the luxury-tax threshold for five years running. Yes, the Marlins have floated threats of tearing down the team around Stanton if he doesn't approve a deal.

Reports about Giancarlo Stanton over the last month or so have been fairly lukewarm.

San Francisco is looking to bounce back from a surprising season that ended with a last-place finish the NL West at 64-98.

The good news is that Stanton is reportedly deciding between ending up on the Giants or ending up on the Cardinals, which presumably won't take him additional weeks to figure out.
