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.”

To grieve Jose Fernandez’s death, Giancarlo Stanton took life-changing journey

And now, nearly six months after the tragic passing of his Miami Marlins teammate, Jose Fernandez, Stanton admits that he looks at baseball through different eyes.

He has learned to “enjoy the moment,” he says, forcefully, “and understand this is the best time of my life—and have joy with it.”

How did he get to this place? Where did he turn to find the solace and healing he needed after Fernandez’s shocking death last September?

On the streets of Barcelona and the beaches of Brazil. At the foot of the pyramids in Egypt and in the alluring smell of bakeries in Paris. It was a trip that took him to eight countries on three continents last fall.

“It’s the longest trip I’ve ever done,” Stanton says, “and the most meaningful.”
