    Sure. To the Braves for B.J. Upton, straight up.

    Make them throw in Steve Cischek and Mike Dunn. I hear they are untouchable!

      Forget the Braves.

      The Yankees, .. A-Rod for Stanton, .. straight up. Of course the Yankees would need to eat about 85% of his salary but, …… at least they’d be paying huge dollars for a young player that would likely give them the production.

      And, the Feeshe would get a gate attraction while A-Rod would get to go home.

      Of course, OG would go ABSOLUTELY friggin nuts but, .. that might be worth it in and of itself!

    Sure, what do the Feesh slavemasters really care whether fans show up or not? The other owners are carrying Scrooge and the Chihuahua around on their backs like big sacks of wet sand and for some reason the Player’s Association is sniffing at the situation like the smell interests them a little bit but not, at the moment, nearly as much as the Bufogenesis fiasco. About all that the rapidly dwindling ranks of Feesh fans can do at the moment is sacrifice goats to the lwa and hope that the bloodsucking SOB who owns the team gets incinerated by Tunguska II or hit by a block of blue ice sometime in the nearest possible future.

      A-Rod for Stanton, .. the Yankees swallow about 85% of A-Rod’s salary.

      The Feeshe get a gate attraction, A-Rod gets top go home and the Yankees are, .. to paraphrase, .. free at last.

        Assuming the Borg is willing to pay more like 95% of his salary and 100% of his salary if he gets jammed with that 100-game guillotining Bud Light is having wet dreams about administering, Scrooge McLoria might be interested.

      • bigharold - Jun 11, 2013 at 11:31 PM

        I think you overestimate Scrooge McLoria.

        Nevertheless, … A-Rod would be a Perfect Fit in Miami! Despite your head exploding over the prospect.

    To the Mets for Wheeler.

    It seems like the Marlins are trying to what the Indians’ ownership in Major League was doing. Except the Marlins just want to suck, they’re not trying to leave town or anything.

      Somebody should tell Loria he’s already in Miami, he doesn’t need to tank to get there.

  6. weaselpuppy - Jun 11, 2013 at 5:22 PM

    I reallythink it will be between Texas and STL. STL could lose a Rosenthal and Carlos Martinez plus Wong and not really feel it. Maybe the Feesh want Taveras and Rosenthal plus filler…I’d still do it.

    Texas? Yah Profar and Martin and arm…

    any way you conjugate it, both teams have deep systems, have a need as their OF production is about to age related decline and Da Feesh simply don’t have any hope until the 2016 horizon…

    Other clubs could jump in, maybe the Mets, but yeah…Stanton should go…

      Please, Mr. Loria, trade Mr. Stanton to Texas. I traded for him in my keeper league this year, and the thought of him hitting in that park with a decent lineup around him. . . well, let’s just say Pavlov’s dogs got nothing compared to the drool on my keyboard right now. . . .

    Why would the Marlins ever trade Stanton?

    • kcrobert10 - Jun 11, 2013 at 5:56 PM

      Ill give u a couple good reasons. He isn’t happy he won’t sign an extension and his value will never be greater than right now.

      • fukpittsburgh - Jun 11, 2013 at 6:35 PM

        Aside from what you read on this site, how do you actually know he isn’t happy? He’s a 23 year old millionaire living in Miami. You do the math. Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear. And he is signed until 2017 so I don’t expect an extension to get done by tomorrow. I’m sure he is disappointed about being a part of a losing team but that is the nature of the game. Not every team can buy victories like the Yankees. As far as trade value goes yes it is very high but that doesn’t mean they trade him. The Marlins are currently rebuilding with one of the more coveted farm systems in the league and after trading away all those players in the offseason (which I think was a good move), how much flack do you think they would take trading away the cornerstone of their franchise? This team will be good in a few years. Don’t bet on Stanton going anywhere no matter how much the rumor mill heats up.

      • Old Gator - Jun 11, 2013 at 11:21 PM

        No, you do the math. The Iron Giant is not making anywhere near a million – he’s making around half that much. And working for these tightwad parasites, that all he will be making until the pressure of arbitration either jacks his salary hugely (and this can happen well before he becomes otherwise free of the Feesh) or the skinflints he works for panic and trade him to save their bottomless line.

        As far as how we know he’s unhappy, it’s because he has(a) tweeted and (b) said so. He has also said, in a number of interviews, how much he would love to play closer to home in California. He is, of course, very much a gentleman and doesn’t go around ragging the team the way that nitwit Ian Stewart rags the Cubs. On the other hand, he has let it be known in other ways that he’s not happy here. When local spawrtsrighters have asked him point blank if he’s happy here, he has not once answered with a straightforward “yes.” Here in Macondo, as elsewhere, his disaffection with the organization is well known.

    We could use him here in kc. Dayton Moore needs to do this now. Ill gladly give u any prospects you guys want just name ur price. Ventura, Zimmer, mondesi, starling, Cuthbert, colon, and anyone else you want. Cuase lets be honest he would make kc a scary team to play.

  9. 13arod - Jun 11, 2013 at 8:26 PM

    fukpittsburgh stanton said he wasn’t happy a couple of months ago and he has abtration this year so he could become a free agent if he wants to get the heck out of miami
