While it appears that it's a matter of when and not if the Miami Marlins will eventually trade outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, ESPN's Jayson Stark says that when isn't going to be this season. Stark says we can all cool it on the Stanton trade chatter, as he's spoken with several general managers who are convinced the Marlins won't be dealing the slugger this season.
"I don't think they're going to trade him," an AL
exec said. "I think Jeffrey is totally dug in on that. They control him
for three years. They like the young players they've got coming. I don't think
there's any chance they trade him. Not this summer. Not this winter. Maybe
You can probably disregard the ever at the end of the statement from the unnamed executive, even though Stanton is clearly a player teams are giddy to build their franchise around. The Marlins aren't most clubs, and they've showed a penchant for trading away players others covet, including Josh Johnson, Hanley Ramirez, Miguel Cabrera, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Emilio Bonifacio.
It won't be surprising to see Stanton dealt this winter, but for the time being it appears that the Marlins are focused on moving other players such as Ricky Nolasco, Steve Cishek, Mike Dunn and Juan Pierre.
