Neither Trades With Cards Or Giants Have Stanton's Approval

Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt announced an agreement with the Marlins was in place, but Stanton will not waive his no-trade clause to come to St. Louis.

Stanton just finished the third year of the 13-year, $325 million contract with Miami.

Big news in the Giancarlo Stanton trade sweepstakes. While they technically are disallowed from having Stanton lower his contract to make it more palatable, even if he were open to the idea, it's possible they could propose additional opt-outs for him, or perhaps the team, to lessen the likely commitment (though even that may be disallowed). "When there is a need to make a statement, we'll make a statement". The rumors that St. Louis and San Francisco have engaged in serious trade talks with Miami could mean nothing if the slugger decides he doesn't want to play for either team.

Jim Bowden tweeted that he believes the Dodgers and Yankees are the most likely destinations. Here are all the latest Major League Baseball rumors you need to know. And that puts the Yankees in a unique situation, one that an aggressive general manager like Brian Cashman would have to address with ownership.

Trump says he wants Senator Orrin Hatch to seek re-election in Utah
Orrin Hatch , R-Utah, to seek for re-election in 2018 - a move which some see as an attempt to block former Massachusetts Gov. Romney fiercely criticized Trump during last year's campaign and came to personify the "Never Trump" movement for a time.

They like Stanton very much but would clearly be looking for a (good) deal if they were to seriously entertain such a move, and the Marlins will want to give the Giants and Cardinals every chance first.

As a rival exec said on Friday, "Don't forget, you'd be taking a guy for 10 years who has a significant history of injuries".

It would be hard to blame the Yankees for going hard after Stanton, given the prospect of him playing in an outfield that already has Judge, who was named AL Rookie of the Year after hitting 52 homers and driving in 114 runs in 2017. The Miami Marlins have reportedly agreed to the framework of a deal with both teams, but the National League MVP victor seems to have his eyes on playing elsewhere.

Meanwhile the Yankees, tempted as they may be, are convinced they'll get there without adding such a weapon.
