Heyman | Here’s How Much It’ll Cost Stanton To Be A Yankee

How much will it cost him to say at a Motel 6?

It isn’t an exact calculation, but noted tax expert Josh Rossman of Port Jefferson Station, N.Y., says that if Stanton chooses to live in New York City, he will have to pay an additional $29 million in taxes on the $295 million remaining in his record $325 million contract.

Stanton benefited by being a Florida resident the first three years of his contract, but his backloaded part will be heavily taxed as a Yankee. Rossman estimated he could save about $11 million of the $29 million loss by living in the suburbs rather than New York City. But assuming he’s in any of the five boroughs, he’ll be slammed.

Report: Stanton trade list includes 4 teams | MLB.com

Maybe this info should have leaked out sooner. Maybe Jeter should have included Stanton in the process from the beginning.

On Thursday night, MLB Network Insider Ken Rosenthal reported Stanton is electing not to accept proposed deals to those two teams, both of which had previously worked out trade frameworks with Miami.

The report added Stanton would consider trades to the Dodgers or Yankees. Another report, from Craig Mish of SiriusXM, added the Cubs and Astros to the list of Stanton’s preferred destinations. Thus, what’s next for the slugger promises to be one of the top stories of the Winter Meetings, which begin on Monday in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Giants ‘impressed’ in meetings with Stanton…

Evans confirmed the Giants came to terms with the Marlins on a trade for Stanton that has contingencies, including the right fielder approving it. The Giants and Cardinals have been the most aggressive pursuers, though it’s believed Stanton, who has a full no-trade clause, is holding out for his hometown Dodgers to engage in serious talks.

No details on what would be going to the Marlins.

Miller: Giancarlo Stanton a Dodger? Unlikely and unnecessary – Orange County Register

Let’s be honest, the whole process is a complete mystery. Here we are debating the merits of adding a $295-million slugger, trying to determine how much – if at all – such a move would improve the Dodgers.

Meanwhile, there’s no arguing that this team’s batting order became decidedly more whole this summer when $535,000 Chris Taylor was moved to the leadoff spot.

Ridiculous? Sure, but if baseball made sense, there’d never be a day when Derek Jeter would be leading the Marlins and Alex Rodriguez’s girlfriend would be campaigning for Rodriguez to lead the Yankees.

And, if trading for Giancarlo Stanton were that easy, there’d be no excuse for missing the chance, especially for the Dodgers.

But this is one juicy, belt-high fastball they should let pass. There’s a reason players rarely are signed for 10 years or more. Unless Stanton is going to opt out, the Dodgers shouldn’t opt in.

An unpleasant alternative if Giancarlo Stanton refuses trade | Miami Herald

There are worse things than living in Miami and making millions of dollars playing baseball. I’d say Stanton has hand, not the Marlins.

According to two sources with knowledge of discussions, the Marlins informed Stanton in October that if he refused to waive his no-trade rights and accept a trade, he would remain a Marlin and team officials would look to trade off other top players to reduce payroll.

While it wasn’t presented to Stanton as an ultimatum, one source said, it shows that the Marlins aren’t without leverage in their efforts to deal Stanton and relieve them of the financial burden he brings. Stanton has said he doesn’t wish to be part of a rebuild.

Stanton, Altuve capture first MVP Awards | MVP

Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins and Jose Altuve of the Astros couldn’t be more different in stature, but they both spent last season producing at elite levels en route to Major League Baseball’s highest individual award.

Stanton and Altuve were unveiled as the National League and American League Most Valuable Player Award winners, respectively, by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Thursday.

Derek Jeter addresses Giancarlo Stanton rumors | MLB.com

That said, Jeter noted that the club has “some financial things we have to get in order,” a process that could begin with a trade of Stanton, who is owed $295 million over the next decade.

“This is an organization that’s been losing money for quite some time, so we have to turn it around,” Jeter said. “How we do that? It’s not clear. It’s easy to point the finger at him because he makes the most money, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that that’s the move that’s going to be made.

“We’re here [at the General Managers Meetings] like every other team, trying to figure out how we can make this organization better. No one has come out and said that we are specifically trading Giancarlo Stanton. We’re seeing the best way to make this organization successful, and we want it to be sustainable for a long time.”

Miami Marlins new owners plan to cut payroll to $90 million | Miami Herald

Getting a team to take the contract *and* send young controllable players back won’t be an easy task.

If the current roster was left unchanged, next year’s payroll would approach $140 million, meaning ownership would need to eliminate about $50 million to get to the $90 million target figure they presented to owners. The owners could always choose to exceed or fall below $90 million.

An opening day payroll of $90 million would have ranked 26th of 30 teams in the majors last season, ahead of only the Oakland A’s ($82 million), San Diego Padres ($71 million), Tampa Bay Rays ($70 million) and Milwaukee Brewers ($63 million).

Heyman | 7 Potential Landing Spots In Giancarlo Stanton Trade

If the Marlins are truly committed to slashing payroll to the core, Stanton has to go. As Heyman mentions, trading him after this season maximizes the get. How many teams, though, would be willing to eat the salary *and* kick back quality prospects?

As for Heyman’s thoughts on potential landing spots…if the Marlins are looking to slash payroll, I don’t see them taking Ellsbury back.

4. YANKEES
The Yankees did make a call, and while there hasn’t been a lot of internal buzz about them, they definitely could swing it. They could include Jacoby Ellsbury as a way to offset the deal (though of course the Marlins would want prospects back, too, and the Yankees have those). However, the Yankees are believed to have real interest and intention even in going below the tax threshold this winter to set themselves up nicely for the next winter, and a big deal like this would probably kill that possibility. They also don’t have a great need for a power-hitting right fielder since they have the second-best one in Aaron Judge.
