Definitely the strongest terms we've heard since this whole thing started. So the question is, what is the BEST package you offer for Stanton?
I'll start: One each of
Cingrani/Corcino/Travieso (Once he can be moved)
Any hitting prospect in the minors other than Hamilton
(my guess is the Fish need pitching and not up-the-middle players after the blockbuster trade)
If the Fish choose Frazier, sign Youkilis to play 3B
No no no to trading Chapman. Don't really want to trade Frazier either. Trading a major league player is a lateral move at this point. We need to add, not exchange.
I'm not down for trading Hamilton because he's basically a MLB player at this point. I would also prefer to not trade Stephenson, because he looks like he could be ridiculously good.
Aside from that, if we have the pieces, give them whatever they want. Corcino/Cingrani/Travieso/Leake, it's a lot of pitchers but that is the game's currency. Maybe that could do it. Maybe add a SS too? Maybe Didi since he would make less for longer?
