Giancarlo Stanton Could Soon Be Traded To The Giants Or The Cardinals

Report Giants Remain in Contact With Pirates Regarding McCutchen

If the Los Angeles Dodgers are Giancarlo Stanton's first option, there has to be another option for the reigning NL MVP if talks between his Miami Marlins and the Dodgers continue to fail picking up traction. The biggest catch here may be the money aspect, with the Marlins insisting that whomever wants to grab Stanton in a trade assume responsibility for at least $250 million of the remaining $295 million that is still left on his mammoth contract.

Although this news makes a Stanton trade seem imminent, it's important to remember that he remains in control of his destiny. He'd need to approve any deal because of his full no-trade clause. The player's reps have already met with the San Francisco Giants' brass and were granted permission by the Miami franchise to pursue similar conversations with the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Giants have many holes to fill including the outfield, third base and the bullpen as they try to bounce back from an embarrassing 98-loss season.

That n-word was too loud and clear for there only to be one black girl in this room", wrote the writer Mikelle Street. Additionally, it is the longest running No. 1 track in Billboard's Hot 100 history from a solo female rapper.

One team that is showing decreased interest in Stanton is the Boston Red Sox, as SiriusXM's Craig Mish reports they have chose to end their pursuit of him.

If it comes down to the Giants and Cardinals, then we're by far the favorite.

Stanton would help the Giants in the home run department as they finished dead last in home runs in 2017. His contract allows him to opt out after the 2020 season, which would guarantee only three seasons with his next team. The Marlins are said to have interest in second baseman Joe Panik, who won't be a free agent until 2021.
