Andy Cohen Gives His Giancarlo Stanton-to-the-Cardinals Pitch

It is worth noting that Stanton is 28 years old. They've been mediocre for years - a restart is nearly necessary. Since 2012, the Marlins have not had a winning season or have shown signs of improving. Just a few weeks ago he posted a picture of him hanging out with G-Eazy. There are plenty teams who need help in the outfield. Given that the Marlins are heavily focused on offloading his contract, the second part of that formulation - i.e., luring Stanton himself - is perhaps the more challenging of the two.

One reason for a holdup in a deal could potentially be the Los Angeles Dodgers interest in Stanton. Given Stanton's no-trade clause and his likely preference to play for the Dodgers, L.A. can perhaps leverage those factors and agree to assume less of Stanton's salary obligation than the Giants and Cardinals have.

Back in the middle of November, Jon Morosi tweeted that teams told the Marlins that Stanton's contract is what he would receive on the open market. According to Craig Mish, the Giants will be offering several players in the trade. Both teams reportedly have agreed to the framework of potential deals with Miami. However due to Stanton's full no trade clause, he has the final say in whether or not the deals will be finalized.

Stanton appears inclined to wait for complete clarity [on #Dodgers interest] before fully embracing other alternatives.
Where will Stanton wind up by the time the busiest week of the off season ends? However, there is a feeling that the Dodgers could ruin the possible trade.

He could also make playing catch with a Nerf football with fans above the arcade at AT&T Park a regular thing. He brings a lot of help to the Giants and the move, if it happens, could change the landscape of the National League West in 2018.
