MLB.com’s Marty Noble wrote a piece that the Mets should try to make a push to acquire Miami Marlins budding superstar slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
Stanton is just 23 years old and has shown mammoth power in just three professional seasons.
But hold on, the Marlins have already traded the rest of their star players. Why would the team part ways with its only young power bat?
Well, Stanton is a hot commodity right now, and the Marlins are in a position in which they certainly won’t be competitive (at least on paper) for the next few seasons.
So from the Marlins’ standpoint, building around the young slugger will make for a competitive team when Stanton enters his prime.
If he were to be traded, however, the Marlins would demand a package of a number of stellar prospects as well as cash. But as of now, we can only gauge on how many prospects or how much money it would take to get a deal done.
Obviously, all 30 teams would salivate at the chance to acquire Stanton at the right price, sin...
