No, I think Stanton can make things uncomfortable for the Marlins moving forward. I doubt he will because it's Michael Jordan 101 to be docile, compliant and agreeable in order to maximize your earnings (malcontents don't sell Hanes t-shirts).
Yet he could make the ongoing news story with the Marlins that their star player doesn't want to participate in their sham. What Loria doesn't want, and many not want to risk, is ongoing bad publicity.
