Andy Cohen Gives His Giancarlo Stanton-to-the-Cardinals Pitch

Andy Cohen Gives His Giancarlo Stanton-to-the-Cardinals Pitch

Schulman believes that the Giants may have an answer on Stanton, and the fate of Japanese sensation Shohei Otani, who put the Giants on his shortlist of teams, before next Monday. This means that it wouldn't make sense for a team to take on the entire contract as well as include top prospects.

The Miami Marlins slugger is expected to decide whether or not he'll waive his no-trade clause and accept a trade to the San Francisco Giants by the end of the week, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic.

Will Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma tie the knot in December?
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's love affair has always been the talk of the town and so has been the reports of their wedding. A few months ago, there were reports of the couple having broken up but later, they all turned out to be merely rumours.

Miami is looking to unload a good chuck of the $300 million remaining on Stanton's deal. By telling Stanton that if he rejects a trade, he's going to be part of a long, messy rebuilding process. Stanton is Stanton, MLB's preeminent dinger monster, a lineup-changing force whose only equal offensively this winter is J.D. Martinez, who will also be expensive, is older, and comes without the ability to play defense. "But our terms with the Marlins are clear". That's especially the case now that the punishments are even more costly under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The upshot is that taking on a contract like Stanton's would make it hard for them to get under the threshold. Yes, the Marlins have floated threats of tearing down the team around Stanton if he doesn't approve a deal. However, if Craig Mish's report is true, then the Giants are taking on nearly all of Stanton's contract and sending over their top four prospects. To what degree can the Marlins be cornered into paying more of that $295 million that Stanton is owed if those San Fran and St. Louis frameworks fall apart? San Francisco has won a lot in the decade.
