Giancarlo Stanton prefers Giants over Cardinals

Giancarlo Stanton prefers Giants over Cardinals

The context behind those meetings became clearer on Sunday: Multiple sources said the Marlins have agreed upon the general framework of a Stanton trade with both San Francisco and St. Louis. In fact, previous suggestions were that the Giants themselves might be favored to land the slugger. And although the Los Angeles Dodgers reportedly are Stanton's first choice, it's the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants that recently have emerged as the most likely landing spots. The biggest catch here may be the money aspect, with the Marlins insisting that whomever wants to grab Stanton in a trade assume responsibility for at least $250 million of the remaining $295 million that is still left on his mammoth contract.

The Giants and Cardinals each showed trade interest in Stanton, dating back to before the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline. The Dodgers have not been beating down the door for Stanton.

Miami's season ended a little over two months ago, so the team has acted quickly to try to move its best player. The Dodgers are enamored with Stanton's power, but are concerned about the luxury-tax implications of trading for him. MLB.com reported the Dodgers were the only team Stanton would be willing to accept a trade to, without further consideration. Why would they if he's determined to play for them and no one else?

Stanton would help the Giants in the home run department as they finished dead last in home runs in 2017.
