The Miami Marlins have reportedly not been willing to trade star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, but would be willing to trade him during this year's offseason, but with the Marlins rebuilding process going better than expected, will they trade him at all? Danny Knobler of CBS is reporting that the Marlins are moving further away from trading star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. While they may not be interested in moving him, it isn't keeping teams shy of asking about him. According to Knobler, one team frequently calls them and asks about Stanton. The Texas Rangers. Each time the Rangers have asked about him, the Marlins have told the Rangers every time that he is not available. The Rangers' interest in Stanton is simple. They want a big power bat in that lineup to fill the void of Josh Hamilton's departure. Losing a guy like Hamilton cannot be easy, but filling his spot with a younger, fresher Giancarlo Stanton would make the Rangers better than they were even with Hamilton. If the Marlins are serious about their future, they would keep Stanton, as he is only 23-years-old. Stanton has the kind of bat that could hit 500 career home runs, if not more. I'm not saying he will, but I am saying he has that kind of potential. It is not often you see a player like Stanton in the big leagues, so it is understandable why the Rangers were interested. On the year, Stanton is hitting .251 with 10 home runs and 27 RBI's. Keep in mind that Stanton has only played in 50 games this year. In his first three years, Stanton has hit an average of 31 home runs per year. He has serious potential and it appears that the Marlins want that potential to be a part of their team for the future and who could blame them?
