Giants expect Giancarlo Stanton decision 'by the end of the week'


Back in the middle of November, Jon Morosi tweeted that teams told the Marlins that Stanton's contract is what he would receive on the open market.

It has been reported that Stanton wants to head out west and play for San Francisco Giants.

It makes sense, too. Stanton is believed to prefer a trade to the Dodgers where he would be closer to home.

The former Southampton star knows he must play first-team football if he is to stand any chance of making the World Cup squad. Given Shaw has yet to start a Premier League match for United this season, there has been speculation about a transfer.

It seems that the Giancarlo Stanton era could be coming to an end in Miami.

Is your team one of the seven in the running to sign Shohei Ohtani? Though he has an opt-out clause for 2020, Miami doesn't want to chance it. By all appearances, the Marlins are willing to take a less-than-premium return in terms of young talent in order to offload the vast majority of that remaining obligation.

Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. did a great job of breaking down the Dodgers' current straits on this front.

According to Craig Mish of Sirius XM, the full trade offer from the Giants includes $250 million of Stanton's contract and top prospects Tyler Beede, Heliot Ramos, Chris Shaw, and Christian Arroyo. He also added that they view the Dodgers, not the Cardinals, as their biggest threat!

"The specifics of the deal are not something that we feel comfortable discussing, but ultimately our hope is that if he does choose to come here, we'll be able to fold him in with a winning club", Evans said Wednesday. 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. That's perhaps why the Dodger front office is "slow playing" this to an extent. San Francisco has won a lot in the decade.

St. Louis infielder Kolten Wong used self-deprecation in his appeal. And beyond all that.
