Phillies involved in 'preliminary communication' to acquire Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton

Phillies involved in 'preliminary communication' to acquire Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton

An earlier report from MLB.com Friday said the Red Sox had been in on "preliminary talks" on Stanton, along with the Cardinals, Phillies and Giants.

Given the Red Sox' need for at least one more slugger, it would amount to professional malpractice for Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski not to perform due diligence for the Red Sox and explore the trade fully.

The Miami Marlins apparently have a trade partner in mind with regard to the Giancarlo Stanton sweepstakes. The league's general managers have their annual meeting next week and Stanton will surely be a hot topic in the back rooms. Reports indicate that the Marlins will have more in-depth trade talks at the meetings in Orlando.

The homeless are 'employing children and handicapped persons to seek alms at the main junctions of roads, ' the ban order states. About 6,000 beggars in the city are likely to be shifted to rehab centers and shelters for homeless during the drive.

Morosi points out that the Phillies are uniquely suited to take on the remainder of Stanton's 13-year, $325 million contract, as they now have a $6.35 million payroll heading into the 2018 season. That said, Stanton can opt out of his contract following the 2020 season, at which point he'd only be due $77 million.

The first is whether or not Stanton, who has a full no-trade clause, wants to even play in Boston. He has stated only that he would like to be part of a winning team - something he's never experienced in his eight seasons with the Marlins - and doesn't wish to be part of a rebuild, which is expected to occur in Miami with new ownership.

Stanton led the majors with 59 home runs and 132 RBIs during 2017 while the Red Sox ranked last in the American League with 168 home runs.
