SNAGGING GIANCARLO STANTON WOULD PROVE CASHMAN GENIUS and told me that the Marlins would "never be willing" to unload Giancarlo Stanton and further aggravate Marlins fans... well, they are willing and they most likely will "unload him." Why? Because baseball is a business and it was clear to me when they unloaded the full Marlins team to Toronto... if the price is right, everything is negotiable...everything, including Giancarlo Stanton.
Jim Bowden of Sirius XM, read HERE, tweeted that the Marlins Assistant GM Dan Jennings WILL in fact listen to offers for Giancarlo Stanton. Couple that with Giancarlo Stanton irritated with that blockbuster trade with the Toronto Blue Jays and it seems like a perfect opportunity for Yankee brass to work the phones feverishly as to get this 23 year old right handed right fielding stud, just in time for the Opening of the 2013 season. The Yankees have alot of guys they could offer, and as I stated in my piece THE HURRY UP & WAIT OF MY NEW YORK YANKEES, a trade may be the best way Yankeeland will get what they want. This opportunity almost seems like an odd scheme, almost like Cashman knew this was happening and didn't jump on guys like Raul Ibanez or Eric Chavez or Nick Swisher or Shane Victorino on purpose. This my friends, feels right.
Many disagreed with me when I suggested an offer would be, could be and should be made by the Yankees on Stanton. Many suggested this idea was silly because the Marlins would "never be willing to part with Stanton." Well... they are willing.
Trust me...Don't think for a moment that Brian Cashman's finished. You heard it from Jennings's mouth, courtesy of Jim Bowden... things are happening. Let's hope the Yankees are in the middle of it, just in time for New Years.
