Agree. Stanton is the one guy, maybe the only 1 guy who can restore order to the Cards offense. Scott

I agree, this type of deal makes sense and there is a scenario where both clubs benefit. The challenge is for the deal to ever see the light of day. Other than money, there is no reason for Miami to get rid of Giancarlo Stanton.

Have them throw in one of their other outfielders and give them some of our logjam talent for their. They save face and cut payroll. We could do a Pham/Grichuk or Pham/Piscitti and throw in Wong. Why have a chase for at bats? Maybe then Bader can get a look at some point next year.

[…] because they smell a deal.  It seems obvious that, unless the Cards can get a lot for him, they should keep him around.  I don’t figure that Seattle would give up Michael Pineda for him or anything of that […]
