I highly doubt just Chapman would be enough to acquire Stanton, but I'd at least see what it takes. When it comes to a young, cheap talent like Stanton, you've got nothing to lose by asking, however long the odds.
LOL. Beat me to it. But any mention of getting Stanton seems to be taboo on here.
Miami has that Cuban fan base. And I've been nervous about Chapman's arm durability too. I'd inquire and see what it would take. Chapman can swing both ways - starter or reliever.
