    Stanton is off limit

    http://www.sportingnews.com/mlb/story/2013-11-04/mlb-trade-rumors-marlins-declare-slugger-giancarlo-stanton-off-limits

     

    Sound like the Seattle team where there were rumors about Felix the King being traded every year, but kept him.

    He'll be a FA in a couple of years....right when Napoli (who I think will be back for at least 2 years) will be coming off the books.....get him then when all it costs is cash.  In order to get him it will START with Boggy and Owens.....with probably RDLR and Renaudo thrown in.  I am ALL FOR trading some of the farm away for ESTABLISHED young MLB players.....but not the whole farm. 

    Can we just kiss the Stanton thing good bye?..............for now.

    Might be another Manny, but it appears he also misses alot of games.  How much of your farm system would you trade if he's not a gamer, at least a little in the Pedroia mould?

    Exactly...I don't think the Sox Front Office, especially Cherington, would ever consider trading away the package it would take to get him.

    I like Stanton, but paying cash for Beltran for 2 years is a good alternative. Miami remains in the cellar for two more years while Stanton's salary rises.... by then, the Miami GM may have different ideas and Stanton will be ancient at all of 25...

    Re: Stanton is off limit

    Seriously, I wouldnt mind getting him, but it is too ridiculous to unloaded farm system for him.  If Tampa can just give away Shield and another guy just for Meyer, why can Boston do it the same way too!!

    I could easily be wrong, but I wouldn't trade Bogaerts straightup for him.

    The Sox wouldn't either, Joe.  Every organization is always looking for that rare homegrown talent who they think can be that next superstar on AND off the field.  The Sox think they have one in Bogaerts & he is as "unavailable" as any player in baseball right now.

    Stanton only hit .259 last year, I'm the GM I'm not trading 5 top tier prospects. Marlins can keep him.

    I think a lot of folks think of him as a Miggy Cabrera type hitter, but I see him as more Justin Upton type.  His K/AB is ~ 1:3.  He's young ,so it should improve, but he'll have 180 Ks in a fullseason, which, BTW, he genrally doesn't have.

    And just as a point of reference, Napli had 187 K's in 2013, and we all know how frustrating THAT was.

    Yes frustrating but he was second in RBI, HRs, BB, and only 15 DPs in 578 PAs and  brought a lot to the team not in the stats . Whether he K'd or flew out or grounded out it was still just an out. In many cases a K was better than a GDP.

    I don't disagree at all.  In fact when he was in the midst of one of his "K-Runs" he was at least contributing by running up pitch counts.

    Only two players on the Red Sox grounded into more DP's than Napoli. Ortiz and (would you believe *Pedroia!*).  No doubt that his high K rate kept him from leading the team in GIDP's and kept innings going for Nava, Gomes, etc. 

    I'm just not sure that Stanton has nearly the plate discipline that Napoli has, AND if Napoli comes back do we want TWO of the K machines in the order?

    The Marlins are a mess right now.  As for Stanton, good luck to him.
