Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade Framework With Cardinals, Giants

Sirius XM's Craig Miss reported on Thursday night that the San Francisco Giants were meeting with Stanton's agents in Los Angeles.

A trade for Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton might be in the works. Stanton grew up 15 miles from Dodger Stadium, and it's believed he'd prefer to play in his hometown for the National League champs.

Execs from the Giants and Cardinals met in recent days with Stanton's representatives, and Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports that Stanton himself was present for both meetings.

But the Dodgers, who paid $113.5 million in competitive balance tax penalties from 2013-16 and are estimated to pay more than $30 million this season, might be hesitant to commit to Stanton, who has $295 million and 10 years remaining on his contract. He'd need to approve any deal because of his full no-trade clause.

Some people took a dim view of the models using the n-word, no matter how unintentional it apparently was. Requests for comment made to Victoria's Secret, Cardi B and Kloss were not returned by publication time.

The Marlins are reportedly only willing to pick up $45 million of Stanton's contract to make the deal work.

A trade framework was a logical precondition for the Marlins to grant the Giants and Cardinals permission to speak with Stanton. "Another opined that he'd 100 percent' take the Giants over the Cardinals if that's the choice", Heyman noted.

That's another factor, the state of the Giants and whether they can convince Stanton the team has a bright future despite the team-wide struggles starting after the 2016 All-Star break and a core of players advancing in age - the Dodgers' core is far younger.

Stanton would help the Giants in the home run department as they finished dead last in home runs in 2017. Second baseman Joe Panik has also been mentioned.
