A year after moving into a beautiful new stadium, the Miami Marlins have traded away a significant part of their team that they hoped would compete for a playoff spot in 2012. After sending Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays for a plethora of prospects, the Marlins lone star in Miami is Giancarlo Stanton. And now, his stay in South Beach may be limited. The Marlins have had numerous teams inquiring about their budding superstar, including the Red Sox, Yankees, Orioles and Cubs, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Stanton himself was shocked to hear the news of his (former) teammates being sent north of the border, tweeting out his displeasure towards the trade. Alright, I'm pissed off!!! Plain & Simple— Giancarlo Stanton (@Giancarlo818) November 13, 2012 But, as Cafardo points out, the Marlins will be closely watched by commissioner Bud Selig following the mega deal, as he had to approve the trade after “thorough examination.” As the hot stove heats up, the Red Sox have put their names in the hat for multiple players, including free-agent catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli, who visited Boston over the weekend. Cafardo also points out that the Sox have been in contact with free agent outfielder Nick Swisher.
