    Cool Giancarlo Stanton Trade Rumors Thread

    Reports of Stanton to Boston "may be heating up".

    Ironically, this would mean Jeter could send the best name in today's trade market to the Yanks' arch rival.

    Nightengale is full of of it most of the time but I'd still imagine that St. Louis is one of the major players for Stanton. There aren't many teams with the prospect depth and salary cap room to make that trade work.

    I never rule out a Dave Dombrowski team when it comes to throwing prospects at a superstar. It just depends on how far into the luxury tax Boston is willing to go.

    Stanton would be a monster at Fenway but at what cost in the OF? I could see Bradley Jr. in a package with others but the other 2 B's should be untouchable at this point

    I think most teams have the prospect depth required to obtain Stanton. It all depends on how much of that massive contract they are willing to take on. I mean, if a team is willing to pay close to a quarter billion for him then they'll only need to give a few mid tier prospects in order to get him.

    I'd be in for JBJ, Sam Travis and Michael Chavis, they offer that and pay most of the money and that should get it done. I love Chavis but I'd make the move even knowing Stanton likely won't play more than 115-120 games anyear and he'll have a steep decline before the contract is up.

    The only thing that will keep Giancarlo Stanton out of St. Louis is Giancarlo Stanton.

    The Cardinals have the money, the prospects, and the willingness to trade for him.

    But at the end of the day, itís up to Giancarlo to wave his no-trade clause.

    And Iím not sure he will do that to play in the Midwest.

    For another team to take on that contract, Miami would be lucky to get a 12 pack of coke in trade.

    I think we should go after Josh Donaldson to cure our issues at 3B.. Devers can DH while learning to play 1st to replace Hanley. We NEED a right handed slugger to take advantage of Fenway and balance the lineup more

    He passed through waivers already last season without a claim. Every team in MLB already had a chance to acquire him for money only. I don't think anyone is going to trade for him without the Marlins eating at least some of the post opt out part of the contract. That means there will have to be at least one really good prospect in whatever team's package to acquire him. You can narrow the list down pretty quickly from there. Who has pitching and outfield prospect depth (what the Marlins are seeking) and room to take on that contract? It's a pretty short list. Boston (maybe if the Marlins like Groome or are willing to pay JBJ's contract), St. Louis (definitely have the pitching and outfield prospects), and perhaps SF (though I doubt they have the cap space). You can never rule out the Dodgers but he doesn't seem a good fit there other than his preference for a coast team. The Indians and Astros could be dark horses but they both have issues with acquiring him too.

    Stanton could hit 70 homers playing half a season at Fenway.
