The Hot Stove season has already seen the Miami Marlins make one major trade. Might they make another huge splash by trading Giancarlo Stanton before all is said and done?
It’s highly unlikely that they will, as Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reported a couple weeks ago that trading Stanton is not in Miami’s plans for the immediate future.
However, Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe has reported that the Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles, Chicago Cubs and many others have inquired about Stanton. If the Marlins decide to trade him, they’ll have a ton of suitors to turn to.
Meanwhile on the free-agent market, Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM radio is hearing that Zack Greinke’s people expect him to become the highest-paid right-hander in baseball history, and Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com is indicating that the chase for Mike Napoli is down to three teams.
Whenever there are offseason rumors that need discussing, myself and B/R Pop Culture Lead Writer Gabe Zaldivar are on the case. We gave our takes on Stanton, Greinke and Napoli this week, and our ramblings were caught on video once again.
