Why LA is Still the Favorite to Trade for Stanton

Arron's Assessment: Waiting for Giancarlo

SiriusXM host Craig Mish tweeted on Thursday night that the Astros and Cubs are the other two teams, but aren't as high on the list for Stanton as NY and Los Angeles.

In doing so he is refusing to go to either the Giants or Cardinals, the two teams that had worked out parameters of a trade with the Marlins, and on Friday both of those teams reacted to Stanton's power play by essentially saying they were no longer interested.

If they lose out in the Stanton sweepstakes, then Longoria and other pieces could immediately help them.

According to Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic and FOX Sports, Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is pushing for a trade to his hometown Los Angeles Dodgers or the New York Yankees.

The Cardinals also said Stanton had declined to accept a deal to St. Louis. However, the 27-year-old outfielder declined to waive his no trade clause, blocking the trade.


Expect Stanton's future destination to be the main topic of interest at the Winter Meetings, which begin on Monday in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

In 2017, Stanton batted.281 with 59 homers, 132 RBIs, 123 runs, 1.007 OPS and.376 on-base percentage as he won the National League MVP Award.

The Astros likely do not have a need for Stanton considering Josh Reddick is signed up for three more years and they have George Springer in center field in addition to both Derek Fisher and Kyle Tucker presenting intriguing prospects in the future.

And Cashman, who just agreed to a new five-year, $25 million contract extension, has talked Hal Steinbrenner into adding on payroll before, delaying the Yankees' oft-stated goal of getting under the luxury tax.

Since Stanton would now approve a trade to the Yankees, it would behoove NY to at least continue to inquire about what it would take to get him.
