Repeatedly, the Miami Marlins have stated that they are not looking to trade franchise outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, but the name is still very much a hot topic among teams as the season marches closer to Opening Day. Stanton signed a one-year deal with Miami to avoid arbitration in the offseason. Hopes are that Stanton and the Marlins can reach a deal on a long-term contract.

Multiple teams are already pulling together some strings to get a package deal for Stanton. The Boston Red Sox would have the most to offer and because of both teams’ past with epic trades, the two organizations would be perfect trading partners. Jackie Bradley, Matt Barnes, Christian Vazquez, Mookie Betts and Garin Cecchini have been brought up in a potential package deals for Stanton.

Miami has also had its eye on Will Middlebrooks to play the hot corner, something Miami has discussed in the offseason.

It is clear that Stanton could be the most fitting piece to move from Marlins considering the team’s history of letting its stars go. Miami should try to sign him to keep the fan base happy. The team does have seats to fill in a two-year old ballpark, and a hot-hitting Stanton would fill those seats.

    If Boston does not off more quality and less quantity a trade for Stanton will not happen. The Marlins were interested in Middlebrooks to pair with Stanton they are not trading Stanton for him.
