    Giancarlo Stanton-The best player with very little trade value

    So Chris and I were discussing this topic a couple of days back and I thought it would be interesting to get some other opinions on the topic...

    First, I'm a huge fan of Mr. Stanton but that contract he signed essentially makes him impossible to trade even though there might not be a team in the majors that wouldn't love him in their line-up.

    So let's take a look at some points...

    He's on pace to have his best season so far and is still only 27

    Still gets some hobby love but playing somewhere else may help these prices...

    His contract runs through 2027 and has a bit over 260 million remaining...

    So the question is, would you want your team to get him on the cheap and probably eat the last few years of that contract?

    Would take him in the Red Sox in a heartbeat-4 headed monster of Bradley, Betts , Benny, and him between the outfield and DH with all under control for years to come -Wow!

    Thanks,

    How many times has he been on the DL? I would not want him at that cost. Ask the Angels about that contract they gave Albert Pujols. He is getting 26m this year and 27 next year.

    Only twice in 8 seasons has he played in more than 125 games so yes, he's an injury risk
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    I would think the Marlins are eating a lot of that contract or he ain't moving anywhere except maybe to the Dodgers. They dont seem to care what they spend

    I don't think the Dodgers are THAT insane to pick up this Tab, especially if he's showing he is damaged goods

    I suppose it depends on what the marlins are looking for in return. He's certainly an injury risk, but if he comes to someone for comparatively little in return and the marlins even eat a few mill a year I think the reward is worth it. And so it's know, I'm not a fan and the contract is ridiculous. It's not my money and I'm assuming a team that takes him wouldn't let it cripple them financially... somehow.
