Stanton's preferred destination is rumored to be the Los Angeles Dodgers, but both the Giants and Cardinals have reportedly made deals. It only makes sense that he'd want to go to a victor.

Morosi reported on December 3 the Marlins have agreed to the "general framework" of trades proposed by the Giants and St. Louis Cardinals for Stanton, but both deals were being held up while Stanton decides if he will agree to a trade.

Miami is looking to unload a good chuck of the $300 million remaining on Stanton's deal. Evans confirmed that the trade has contingencies, including the fact that Stanton has to approve the trade since he has full no-trade clause.

However, he felt that the best thing for him, and the federation as a whole now was to " see someone new in the job ". Head coach Bruce Arena stepped down following the loss, leaving the team now without a man in charge.


Is your team one of the seven in the running to sign Shohei Ohtani? Yes, Stanton has an opt-out after the 2020 season, but the likely outcome is that he plays out his current deal. "But our terms with the Marlins are clear". They'll need to trade Stanton to achieve that, as his contract runs through the 2028 season. They've been mediocre for years - a restart is nearly necessary. He also added that they view the Dodgers, not the Cardinals, as their biggest threat! However, for a team with a below-market TV contract, no ballpark naming-rights deal, and major troubles selling tickets, the best path to cutting costs is first and foremost trading Stanton.

In short, the Giants and Marlins have done the easy part - agreeing with each other. That's perhaps why the Dodger front office is "slow playing" this to an extent. To what degree can the Marlins be cornered into paying more of that $295 million that Stanton is owed if those San Fran and St. Louis frameworks fall apart? If the Marlins can't trade Stanton (and even if they do), they'll have to trade several other pricey players to shed salary. And beyond all that.
