It seems like there are new Giancarlo Stanton developments a few times a day. Well, today is no different.

Thursday morning, Jon Morosi of MLB Network tweeted that the Marlins would send Giancarlo Stanton to the Giants for Joe Panik, Tyler Beede, and Chris Shaw. The Giants would also have to pay $250 million of Stanton’s $295 million contract. As we all know, Giancarlo Stanton has a full no-trade clause. However, Morosi also tweeted that officials are “optimistic” that Stanton would accept the trade.

It’s looking like the Giants and Marlins could be close to coming to an agreement because Craig Mish of SirusXM tweeted out this on Thursday night:

If front office executives from the Giants are meeting with Giancarlo Stanton’s representatives, it is likely to sell them. Stanton has repeatedly said that he would like to be on a contending team, and the Giants are far from it.

San Francisco finished dead last in the National League West with a record of 64 wins and 98 losses, a winning percentage of just .395. That record is also good enough to be dead last in Major League Baseball, tied with the Detroit Tigers. They would also be giving up two of their top three prospects in the deal, which is definitely not good for the near future of the organization.

Being traded to the Giants would bring Stanton back to the west coast, but it would not put him on a team that is a top contender. With that said, the Marlins have reportedly warned Giancarlo Stanton that if he does not accept a trade, they will look into trading other players. Essentially whether he goes to the Giants or stays with the Marlins, winning does not look to be in Stanton’s future.

Do you think that Giancarlo Stanton should go to San Francisco or should he stay in Miami? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Works for me. I hope the dumb ass midgets invest heavily in a outfielder when they need a total retool. This will take them out of contention for another decade beyond the hole they have already dug.

  2. The Marlins can’t send Stanton anywhere. Stanton will stay in Miami and collect his 295 million, or Miami can allow him to choose another team. The team he chooses and Miami then determine who pays how much on his 295 million. If the new team throws in some talent, then Miami will eat more of his contract. The Dodgers should offer to take Stanton off their hands if Miami eats half of his 2018 contract. This helps the Dodgers with their luxury tax problem for 2018. Miami also takes a couple of bench warmers from the Dodgers to fill out their roster. Stanton is happy, The Dodgers are happy, and Miami is happy, end of story.
