    The Marlins have stated that they’re not shopping young slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who is still inexpensive and the last consistent source of offensive production on their active roster. Of course, that hasn’t stopped teams from calling. A major league source told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe this weekend that “the Phillies, Red Sox, Yankees,…

  10. Passan: The Marlins should do a Herschel Walker trade with Giancarlo Stanton

    Nov 21, 2012, 9:31 AM EST

    Herschel Walker

    Jeff Passan takes a look at Giancarlo Stanton and the Marlins today and strongly suggests that, since they’re punting everything anyway, they trade their most valuable chip now. The basis of that suggestion: some very appealing assessments by MLB insiders of the haul that Marlins could get for him: The executives, granted anonymity because they…

    The Marlins’ latest firesale and Giancarlo Stanton‘s understandably frustrated reaction has people wondering if the 23-year-old slugger may soon be on the way out of Miami as well.

    After the mockery Jeff Loria has made of major league baseball in Miami it is impossible to call anything more clownish than his reign of terror. But if you’re so inclined, you can call Bryce Harper‘s reaction to Giancarlo Stanton‘s displeasure over the Miami Massacre a clown tweet, bro: @giancarlo818 you can always come play…

    Nov 13, 2012, 7:33 PM EST

    Jeffrey Loria

    Jeffrey Loria has long been on the short list of MLB’s worst owners, but he’s truly outdone himself now by trading Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle, just one year after signing them to long-term deals, along with Josh Johnson, Emilio Bonifacio and John Buck to the Blue Jays on Tuesday. Of course, the topper is…

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Tigers 6, Royals 3: Before the season began I said something to the effect of “if I had to bet the lives of my children on the outcome of any division, it would be the Tigers winning the AL Central.” I repeated that line on the radio a bunch of times.  I was sweating it…

    Ozzie Guillen

    When Ozzie Guillen bashed Buster Olney on Twitter Friday, he was merely criticizing the accusation that his team has given up.  On the other hand, he is perfectly willing to admit that his team isn’t any good. The Palm Beach Post has the quotes: “When you say I lose control of my team (and) they’re…
