Stanton In Pinstripes? Slugger Narrows List To Four Teams, Including Yankees

Stanton In Pinstripes? Slugger Narrows List To Four Teams, Including Yankees

Now, following a statement from the St. Louis Cardinals, we're starting to get an idea why. This wouldn't be the worst thing for the Marlins if it's a player on a one year deal, since they they would only have to worry about paying that player for 2018.

Ken Rosenthal reported Thursday that baseball murderer Giancarlo Stanton will not waive his no-trade clause for the Giants or Cardinals.

According to an MLB Network Radio report, Stanton would waive his full no-trade clause to play for the Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs or Astros.

San Francisco and St. Louis had been considered among the favorites to acquire Stanton, whose affinity and ties to Los Angeles also made the Dodgers a top destination _ not to mention their five straight NL West titles and runner-up World Series finish.

Far Cry 5 Delayed to Provide a "Higher Quality Experience"
When they do eventually arrive, we'll see both games launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and PC. Fans who have been anticipating the releases of Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 will have to wait a little longer.

As of Wednesday, the Dodgers had not had a formal meeting with Stanton and agent Joel Wolfe, and they probably don't need to, as the Dodgers would have to work this out with Miami.

The Marlins have been exploring trades for Stanton this offseason as they prepare for a rebuild, but Stanton has limited the teams he would accept being traded to.

Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner has said he wants to get the team's payroll under MLB's $197 million luxury tax threshold, so making a move for Stanton and the $295 million left on his deal makes little sense from that perspective. Considering all their issues, including their obvious tax issue, there's no other way they do it. The Cardinals and Giants were both reportedly expected to take on the majority of it in a trade, but it's less likely that the Dodgers or Yankees would be willing to do the same.

There are many hot takes on social media ripping Stanton for being so specific with his demands and not allowing a trade to the Cardinals or Giants, but that's his right. If they were to trade Fowler, they'd expect the same in such a deal - they'd pay only a small part of it. He wanted to be in Miami, and they're now trying to make him go somewhere else.
