Giancarlo Stanton Newsbeat

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.”
