I don't see the fish trading Stanton anytime soon as there is really no reason to. Unless he is mad enough to really want out immediately, even then they are going to want a ton, and rightfully so.
A lot of you are wasting your time talking about Phillips and Bruce... Miami just did a salary dump... If you haven't read the news lately (Sarcasm) so they are not going to move Stanton for players making $10 Million +
So, when the Marlins obviously decide to trade Stanton like when they traded Cabrera... You're going to have to give up prospects and probably take on an extra Salary... Like Nolasco who makes $11.5 Million in 2013...
Well, IMHO if the Reds had to give up Corcino, Lutz, Soto, Leake, and whoever else cheap to get Stanton and take on Nolasco's salary for 2013, well I would absolutely do that... But you're going to have to come up with a similar package to Detroit's package for Cabrera and Willis... Cameron Maybin, pitcher Andrew Miller, catcher Mike Rabelo and minor league pitchers Eulogio De La Cruz, Dallas Trahern and Burke Badenhop going to Marlins...

So if DiDi is indeed of interest to the Diamondbacks... Please Walt, Pull the trigger for Justin Upton to play left instead of paying Ludwick $7 Million to $10 Million per year!Clear 'Backs will lobbytalk Upton if Gregorius, Bogaerts, Simmons or Profar is avaliable, whivh none on, thus far
if what wildman walker says on the "Old Red Guard" saying 2 Reds sources saying Reds about to get Ellsbury for Stubbs and Corcino. Then Reds could deal for Upton.WOW that would make our offense awesome.
WOW that would be huge. Then they only have to fix the bench
This Jacoby rumor/non-rumor/whatever Wildman is carrying on about certainly is interesting.
