Cardinals become latest team to meet with Giancarlo Stanton's reps

Andrew Mc Cutchen with his son Steel

The Marlins have reportedly warned Stanton that he will be stuck on a stripped-down team in the process of a rebuild if he refuses to waive his no-trade rights and accept a new deal elsewhere. Stanton's people have received approval for a meeting with the Cardinals, but it's unclear when that meeting will take place, sources said. Through the use of his no-trade clause, however, Stanton has the power to box the debt-ridden Marlins into a very hard decision: Keep him and his $295 million contract into the 2018 season, or make a less than ideal trade with a team with which he wants to play. The Cardinals are the other team that's been most aggressive in trade talks for Stanton, while the slugger's preferred choice, the Dodgers, are still lurking.

The Giancarlo Stanton Sweepstakes took a major turn on Wednesday when SiriusXM radio host Craig Mish passed on the news that the Giants were apparently willing to take on Giancarlo Stanton's entire contract in a potential trade.

Morosi reported on November 19 that St. Louis made a formal trade offer for Stanton.

As for the Marlins, Joe Panik is still young and can hit either at the top or bottom of the order and is also a cheap option at second base. The 28-year-old holds a no-trade clause, ultimately putting the power in his hands.
