It was speculated that for the Cardinals to get Stanton, they'd have to offer Taveras, Miller, Rosenthal and a lower prospect. The first 3 would be the top 3 prospects in the Reds organization, although all of those would be up with the big club.
Idk if it'd take that much but it'd definitely take more that what most reds fans think it would take to acquire Stanton. Idk if the marlins would even want Hamilton. Isn't their best prospect a center fielder?
Plus the reds take back nolascos salary too. Most people said that'd be an overpay. I could actually see the fish wanting more.
