Marlins Notes: Giancarlo Stanton

  • The Marlins need to lockup Giancarlo Stanton to a long term deal now. When he is in the lineup the team dynamics is totally different. 
  • My estamation is that a contract extension for him would be like: 
  • From Mlbtraderumors.com : “

    When MLBTR’s Mike Axisa examined the possibility of an extension for Stanton earlier this offseason, he pointed out that Justin Upton ($50MM), Jay Bruce ($51MM) and Carlos Gonzalez ($80MM) signed recent long-term deals that could be relevant to Stanton’s case. We can now add Andrew McCutchen ($51.5MM) to the list as well.”

  • On June 13 the Marlins placed him on the DL. 
  • On that date the Marlins where 7 games back of first place. 
  • The question is; if he was not injured would the Marlins be in contention? Would they have traded Anibal Sanchez, Omar Infante, and Hanley Rameriez. 
  • I think that they would have NOT been traded and I think that they would be going for the second wild card right now.
  • Also they would have traded for players to help them get further and it might have been some big name players.
