Report: Giants interested in another former NL MVP

  Report: Giants interested in another former NL MVP The San Francisco Giants’ top priority this winter is to add some pop to an underwhelming lineup. And while the Giants have primarily been linked to reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton, the team is keeping its options open. According to this one report, San Francisco is in contact with the Pittsburgh Pirates about former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen.

Now, all that's left is for Giancarlo Stanton to approve or reject the teams pursuing him. The Giants expect to know by the end of this week if Stanton is bringing his homers from Miami to San Francisco, according to Alex Pavlovic, though, that timeline could of course change.

For instance, if the Dodgers were to be more aggressive in their pursuit of Stanton, then the slugger might not want to commit to the Giants or Cardinals one way or another, since Los Angeles is his childhood home and seemingly his preference. If the Dodgers continue to show that they prefer a chance to stay under the luxury tax and reset their penalties to giving up prospects to get Stanton, however, then the Marlins' outfielder has more reason to make a decision within the next couple of days.

Report: Yankees, Marlins have discussed Stanton trade

  Report: Yankees, Marlins have discussed Stanton trade While most of the rumors surrounding reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton have involved the San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals, one American League team might be his ultimate landing spot. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Miami Marlins and New York Yankees have discussed a trade that would send the slugger further east. Heyman goes on to note that the Yankees are “on the far fringes” of Stanton talks thus far, primarily because it would be difficult for them to fit in Stanton’s $25 million 2018 salary and remain under the luxury tax threshold. Though, it’s important to note that New York does rank among the top farm systems in baseball, according to This could enable the team to offer up a higher bounty of prospects in exchange for the Marlins picking up nice chunk of the remaining $295 million on Stanton’s contract. The idea of Stanton and his 59 homers teaming up with reigning AL Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge (52 homers) has to be appealing to the Yankees. Add in Gary Sanchez (33 homers) and that would be one potent lineup. It’s at least something to think about as the Stanton situation continues to take over the MLB world and slow down Hot Stove season.

Giancarlo Stanton could be traded by the end of the week , according to NBC Sports Bay Area. This can obviously change as it goes, but Giants expect a Stanton decision by the end of the week .

The Giants believe they will receive a decision from Marlins star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton “by the end of the week ,” according to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area.

San Francisco is apparently more concerned about the Dodgers than the Cardinals, which maybe isn't a shock. The Cardinals are talking to the Marlins about Stanton and made an offer, but it also seems as if they're happy to instead talk about Christian Yelich or Marcell Ozuna should the Marlins make them available in a trade after Stanton is dealt elsewhere. Within that link is also a note from Derrick Goold that the Cards might be the team to take Evan Longoria away from the Rays, should the rumors about Tampa Bay looking to cut payroll be true. The short of it is that St. Louis has options.

With Shohei Ohtani finished with his seven meetings and a Stanton decision seemingly imminent, the offseason can finally get going, just in time for the winter meetings. Almost everything going down in the free agent and trade markets to this point has been in service of setting up a team for acquiring Ohtani, and we're not going to see any major hitters sign until after the Stanton dust has settled. That could be happening really soon, though, if the Giants' timeline has any truth to it.

Report: Giancarlo Stanton unlikely to accept trade to Cardinals

  Report: Giancarlo Stanton unlikely to accept trade to Cardinals Those close to Giancarlo Stanton would reportedly be very surprised if he accepts a trade to the St. Louis Cardinals. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, several people close to the Marlins believe there is very little chance of Stanton accepting a trade to the Cardinals — or anywhere in the midwest.Sources close to Stanton and the Marlins think he prefers a move to the west coast, and failing that, the east coast. One source felt that a move to the midwest would be his “last choice,” while another “didn’t see any way” Stanton would waive his no-trade clause to go to St. Louis.

  • Stanton might not accept a trade to the Giants or Cardinals, and the Dodgers might not give him the opportunity to bail for Los Angeles. Not for 2018, anyway, which means we might be waiting for a Stanton trade for another year. And if so, good for Giancarlo, who would be using the power of the no-trade clause he negotiated.
  • Shohei Ohtani is all done meeting with teams, so now all we have left to do is wait for a decision.
  • The Mariners and Angels acquired more international slot money on Wednesday, in the hopes of being able to increase their offers to Ohtani just that little bit more.
  • Aaron Boone doesn't like Star Wars, according to a Twitter AMA he did after his introduction as Yankees' manager. He still seems more tolerable than his brother Bret, though.
  • The Twins plan to expand protective netting at Target Field in 2018.
  • The A's were shocked by the recent orders to stop their stadium plan.
  • The Tigers made a mistake in signing Derek Norris, who was suspended during 2017 for domestic violence.
  • The Red Sox placed former first-round pick Henry Owenson outright waivers, as he just hasn't been able to put it together in the majors or Triple-A and is taking up a 40-man spot. As the Tigers are rebuilding and can afford to be wrong, Bless You Boys thinks Detroit should be interested in the left-hander.

Report: Yankees to re-sign CC Sabathia .
CC Sabathia is staying in New York. The free agent starter reportedly agreed to return to the Yankees on a one-year deal worth $10 million. BREAKING: According to a source, the Yankees have agreed to a one-year deal with CC Sabathia worth $10 million. The deal is pending a physical.— Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) December 16, 2017The 37-year-old still got it done for the Yankees a year ago, posting a 3.69 ERA in 27 starts. He’s obviously not the pitcher he once was, but he still provides valuable innings and leadership for an otherwise young, contending squad.
