It’s been reported that the Miami Marlins are willing to
listen to trade offers on right fielder Giancarlo Stanton this offseason, and
there’s been “lots of interest” expressed in the young slugger, according to
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. However, sources tell Rosenthal to all but rule
out a deal, adding that the chances of a Stanton trade are “as close to zero as
they can be.”

Their unorthodox approach has been present since their inception...

Remember Juan Pierre? The guy who’s the definition of consistent? Yeah, that’s him. He now resides in Miami with a bleak Marlins’ crop of players. At 34 years-of-age, he is not entirely irrelevant and could turn out to be a worthwhile signing for the Marlins. Yes I know, he’s not the big bopper that garners the media and headlines, but his career isn’t one to disregard...
