    Stanton a Ratbird?

    A scenario I do not care for. It would be nice if just once the Reds didn't have to go into the offseason scrounging for crumbs.

    We need an off-season discussion thread.

    That said, Stanton has a full no trade and it's been said he only wants to go to the west coast.

    You should probably try to switch teams, then. The Reds are never going to be players in the free agent market unless baseball changes the entire way teams make and share money.

    Hasn't it been rumored Stanton won't approve a trade to anyone in the mid west?

    He'll be traded to the yankees for a bucket of day old shrimp.

    I assume his stance on that changes when he realizes there may not be a viable west coast suitor for his services.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    What do you want exactly. The Reds to trade for a $300 million outfielder?

    The Giants seem like good suitors too.

    IT seems like a good fit unless the Marlins want actual young talent back. The cupboard is bare in SF. If it's a straight salary dump or if they could involve another team somehow, I could see the Giants as major players.

    I am sure Yankee fans/lovers hope that Jeter will just give Stanton away in a Chapman like deal.

    Is there some sort of actual hard news or rumor that says Stanton might be traded to the Cardinals?

    There ass an MLB Trade Rumors article that came out today that the Cardinals said they would be willing to trade one of their top pitching prospects if the marlins would pay some of the balance on Stanton’s contract.

    I’m too lazy to search for it right now.

    Your lack of proofreading speaks to this.

    Not talking about free agency only, just about always playing the poor relation. Can't convince me that a 3rd-tier starter or bargain bin middle reliever is the most they can sign OR trade for. Not talking about a Stanton, Darvish, Arietta or even a Martinez-level trade/signing. They're at rock-bottom and still can't afford to add any significant pieces by the way they talk.
