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).

Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton wins HR, RBI titles | MLB.com

“It was tough not to think about,” Stanton said of the home run attention. “But at the same time, if I hit 60, you guys would be sitting here saying, why didn’t I hit 61 or 62? I’m fine with the way my season went.”

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.

Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton a franchise player | MLB.com

This is overly simplistic. Economics matter.

You do not trade a player like Giancarlo Stanton. You just don’t. You don’t even consider it. That’s an option the Miami Marlins should take off the table regardless of who owns the franchise.

Instead, you do exactly the opposite. You build around him. Around his talent. Around his personality and his presence. You build around the credibility he has accumulated during eight seasons in South Florida.

Passan: Free Giancarlo Stanton: Why the Marlins need to trade baseball’s home run king

What would Jeter do?

For the next 16 days, the Marlins can present contending teams with an alluring possibility: Trade for the hottest hitter alive, a 6-foot-6, 250-pound machine whose 10 home runs in his last 11 games give him a Major League Baseball-leading 43 this season. Stanton cleared waivers on Sunday, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports, allowing the Marlins to deal him to any team through the end of August.

Giancarlo Stanton’s 43rd homer sets club mark | MLB.com

Does this season keep him from getting traded or help him get traded?

“He’s that good,” second baseman Dee Gordon said. “He’s one of the best players in the game. And he’s healthy. He’s killing people. He was averaging like 35 homers and he didn’t even play 150 games those years. For him to be able to play this whole year is pretty cool.”

Home Run Derby slugfest: Yankees’ Judge joins Marlins’ Stanton in lineup

Marlins Park is one of the stingiest ballparks in the majors in terms of yielding home runs. Only AT&T Park in San Francisco has permitted fewer home runs since Marlins Park opened in 2012.

But it might not stand a chance in the Home Run Derby on July 10.

On Monday, an array of sluggers — most notably New York Yankees sensation Aaron Judge — agreed to take part in the slugging contest that serves as an appetizer to the All-Star Game one day late

With defending champion Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins set to retain his title, it shapes up as perhaps the biggest heavyweight slugfest in Home Run Derby history….

The Marlins’ Justin Bour, Yankees’ Gary Sanchez, Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger and Twins’ Miguel Sano are also planning to participate. Colorado outfielder Charlie Blackmon and Kansas City third baseman Mike Moustakas round out the field.

Heyman | Could Marlins Consider Trading Stanton?

A $100 million offset? If that’s what’s needed, he will never be traded.

One rival GM says flatly that the record contracts means they are surely “stuck with it,” but several others suggest that a $100-million (or so) offset could be appropriate and make a trade work. One rival GM also suggested it’s possible the Marlins could even try to pair a much more cost-efficient player, such as J.T. Realmuto or Christian Yelich or Marcell Ozuna, with Stanton, to make accepting his contract more palatable for a taker.

Giancarlo Stanton says frustration level is “highest ever”

Giancarlo Stanton should be a happy man, what with a $325 million contract that sets him up for life.

But all that money—guaranteed to the decimal—isn’t putting a smile on his face. He is fed up with losing, and losing is all he’s ever known as a Marlin.

Before taking the field Thursday at Dodger Stadium, before the Marlins tossed another loss into the raging bonfire, Stanton said his frustration level is reaching new heights.

“It’s probably the highest ever,” Stanton said. “It’s higher than me being the worst player on the field for a month, the worst player in the big leagues for a month, last year.”
