Stanton In Pinstripes? Slugger Narrows List To Four Teams, Including Yankees

Stanton In Pinstripes? Slugger Narrows List To Four Teams, Including Yankees

MLB Network's Ken Rosenthal reported the Los Angeles Dodgers are also on the list, while Craig Mish of SiriusXM said the Houston Astros and Chicago Cubs are in the running.

According to the latest trade rumors, Giancarlo Stanton, pictured at Marlins Park on October 1, 2017 in Miami, Florida, would accept a deal to the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs or Houston Astros.

There are many hot takes on social media ripping Stanton for being so specific with his demands and not allowing a trade to the Cardinals or Giants, but that's his right.

The Marlins have even agreed to trades with both teams, but they would need Stanton's approval to make a trade official, and it doesn't seem he's going to make that happen (at least at the moment).




The St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants might no longer be the favorites to trade for Giancarlo Stanton. The four teams on Stanton's list made up this year's ALCS and NLCS, and they are all expected to compete for the 2018 World Series. And the Astros just won the World Series and are now projected to win 97 games in 2018 with their roster at the moment, so why get desperate and take on this contract if you don't at all have to? He led the league in home runs, RBI, extra-base hits and slugging percentage.

A lineup featuring Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, and Giancarlo Stanton would be one of the best in Major League Baseball.

The Dodgers too have luxury-tax issues, but their new ownership has proven willing to spend practically anything in search of the franchise's first championship since 1988, and after coming oh-so close this past season, may ultimately view Stanton as someone who puts them over the top. They were second in the NL in runs scored. Where do you think Stanton will be playing next season? But the Dodgers are also reluctant to increase their already sky-high payroll, having exceeded the luxury tax over the previous two seasons.
