Stanton will veto trade to BoSox, Cards

Stanton will veto trade to BoSox, Cards

According to MLB.com, the Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants and Boston Red Sox are among the teams interested in acquiring Stanton. Morosi noted the conversations are "expected to intensify at" the general manager meetings in the coming week.

Stanton would undoubtedly improve the Red Sox offense, but at what cost?

The Marlins, now under new ownership that includes New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter, are said to be intent on cutting salary this offseason and Stanton still has $295 million and 10 years remaining on his current contract.

ESPN's Buster Olney reported Tuesday that some rival executives believe the Miami Marlins' prospect asking price for All-Star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is "shockingly high". The slugger made $14.5 million in 2017 but will collect at least $25 million in each of the next 11 seasons and has player options from 2021-27 and a club option in 2028, per Spotrac.

While Stanton had the best season of his career in 2017 with 59 home runs and 132 RBI to go along with a.281 batting average and.631 slugging percentage, the money remaining on his contract makes him hard to move.
