    Marlins are looking to ship out Stanton. Rumors are Stanton wants to move to the west coast to waive his no trade clause.

    Yankees add Otani, and bring back CC, and I'll be satisfied. Maybe getting Betances out of here too. Some sucker will trade something for that walk machine.

    I read they really wanted to move him to St. Louis because of their abundance of Quality Pitching prospects..

    I don't know what scares me more as a reds fan.... Stanton as a Card, or the abundance of Quality pitching in the St. Louis Minors...

    I mean, yeah, I know Betances was bad for a good portion of the season and was completely useless in the playoffs but he's proven that he can be a really good arm out of the bullpen. Unless an offer for Betances comes along that just completely blows Cashman away, I doubt he moves him and I would be okay with that. If Betances can straighten things out again, he's valuable.

    I wouldn't just give him away, but with the depth in the bullpen, I just think it's time to move on from him.

    Also been rumored to head up to Boston. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Dombrowski gave up everything in that farm to take on Stanton and that contract. I know Stanton is legit and I wouldn't be thrilled if he ended up in Boston but honestly, even if he does, I wouldn't think that automatically makes them World Series contenders like some people do. He will continue to produce but I don't think he'll produce again like he did this year.

    Yeah right, it's like in the NFL where wantaway star players who are rumored to want to move to a warm weather city, only to end up agreeing to a move to New England because of course.

    Well, I know who WON'T be traded in a return for Stanton if the manager down there had a say in it:

    Story: MLB strips Atlanta Braves of 12 prospects, bans former GM for life http://www.latimes.com/sports/mlb/la-sp-braves-scandal-20171121-story.html

    Star prospect Kevin Maitan is one of 12 Atlanta Braves minor leaguers expected to be declared a free agent after league investigation. In addition, Braves will suffer significant restrictions in 2019-20 and 2020-21 international FA classes.

    Basically, they broke international signing rules by overpaying lesser prospects on paper but having them give the overpayment under the table to the better prospects like Maitan.
