Default Stanton

Reports say his preferences (he has full no trade) are the Yankees, Dodgers, Astros, and....of course....Cubs.

That guy's homerism makes Hawk look almost objective. At least Hawk's is just during games.

So, basically he's saying he'll accept a trade to the 4 teams that arguably are the most stacked with talent and look to have the best shot at winning a WS title in the next few years. I'm not saying I blame him. He was able to negotiate a full NTC in that huge contract extension the Marlins gave him - he has every right to dictate which team he'll accept a trade to.

If he ends up on the Cubs, I'm going to puke .....though I wonder if the Cubs have enough talent left in their farm system to beat out the other clubs. Not that their system is now talentless, but I believe they no longer have any top 100 prospects.

Not that having him end up on the Yankees wouldn't also make me throw up a little in my mouth.

Too bad he's apparently rejecting a trade to the Cardinals or Giants.

...by the way, it was 10 years ago this week that the Marlins traded another superstar on a HOF trajectory - Miguel Cabrera.

For him, they got Burke Badenhop, Cameron Maybin, Andrew Miller, and a couple of scrubs.....and Andrew Miller only spent 3 unremarkable seasons in Florida before they traded him for essentially nothing. But, just wait until they get a new ballpark, things will be much better for the Marlins!

If I remember correctly, Cabrera to the White Sox was being talked about at the time as almost being a done deal just before this trade happened. Supposedly the sticking point was the Sox unwillingness to take on Dontrelle Willis's contract as part of a trade.

He blocked me on twitter because I called him out on his homerism and how unprofessional it is for someone in the media to be so biased.

One could argue that taking on Willis’ contract prevented Detroit from making the last few moves necessary to put them over the hump.

Passan said the Marlins are going to have to eat at least $50 million of that contract to move him now

One down, one to go.

I thought either Ohtani or Stanton would end up on the Cubs.

Yankees are reportedly making a big push according to just about everyone.

The Yankees screwing over Jeter is hilarious. They are reportedly going to make the Marlins take back Ellsbury, Headley, and Gardner who the Marlins will have to pay almost $70 million. Castro’s name is coming up as well and the Yankees won’t be giving them their top prospects.

How can the Yankees make Jeter do anything?

That's a horrible deal both mathematically and in terms of moving an asset for prospects.

Agreed. It’s more accurate to say Jeter would be screwing himself.
