    Long time no post but I’ve been advocating it for yrs the royals need this guy even if it just one year.

    ^^^ the Royals will not go after this guy. They have OF that can play… one of the best OFs in the league defensively.

    He’s going to go to a big money team at some point… if he goes to Boston, how many HRs does he hit over the monster? Or Baltimore… or any other friendly left field?

    Stanton will be traded to the Dodges for Yasiel Puig & top pitching prospect.

    Cashboy poised to strike with his only talent and skill, the Yankee checkbook.

    kc: and that’s about all they’d get him for. He wants to go back to the west coast, period. Sure, money matters, but either one of the LA teams would pay him what he’s worth and my gut feeling is that the Giants would bid hard for him, too. San Diego, it’s hard to tell – although he would be a franchise player there, a new foundation for them.

    It’s true that aside from wanting to go home, and from doubting that the Feesh have the financial will to win, the Iron Giant wouldn’t trust Scrooge McLoria as far as he could throw him. He saw him lie to Mark Buehrle about not salary-dumping him. He saw him lie to Jose Reyes about the same thing. He also knows that Scrooge lied to Carlos Delgado about the same thing back in 2005. Why on Earth would he or anyone else believe that lying sack of excrement now? And why would the Iron Giant commit to being stuck working for him beyond 2016 when he might well be salary dumped himself, to somewhere he really doesn’t want to be, when he can tough it out for another two years and be free to sign exactly where he wants to go? It wouldn’t make sense.

    The Feesh may indeed seek to move him first – it’s Scrooge McLoria’s classic, if nauseating, modus after all – but any prospective trading partners are going to want to talk to the big guy to assess how willing he’d be to make a long term commitment. If he’s not willing to commit beyond his arbitration years, let’s face it, they might still take him on but they won’t be as enthusiastic about parting with the stud EYPs the Feesh like to recycle through their Soylent Green facility in the front orifices of Macondo Banana Massacre Field.

      At least Scrooge & the midget are keeping a low profile this year. Give them credit for that. No way there going to pay Stanton 30 million a year for 10 years.
