Giancarlo Stanton. A right fielder with power and youth on his side and an anger for his current team. Seems like a perfect recipe to me.
Stanton tweeted this HERE on November 13th. "OK, I'm pissed off. Plain
Albert Pujols and CJ Wilson. The Marlins screwed the fans and screwed Stanton and if I'm
Stanton, I want out.
I was mocked yesterday pretty good for even suggesting Stanton would be an
option for the Yankees. Conveniently, the mainstream media has slowly followed suit.
Boston.com cam out with there "The Red Sox need to check in on Stanton"
piece 4 hours after I posted. Bleacher Report had their "Stanton would fix the Yankees"
piece. Even Bryce Harper tried recruiting him to the Nationals, HERE. Yeah...
But I'm the idiot for writing SNAGGING GIANCARLO STANTON WILL PROVE CASHMAN GENIUS. Actually, I'm not. I'm ahead of the curve. You're
Welcome. I don't take myself too seriously, but let's be honest, this
was an obvious one.
Look, it makes perfect sense to check in on Stanton. "No" doesn't mean
"No" when the Marlins are having a fire sale. What it means is, "No",
but "Stanton doesn't like what we did in Miami, so make us an offer."
So this is where we're at. Stanton is available despite the the Marlins
are telling us. The Marlins don't give a crap about the taxpayers
because they have what they have and to keep face, they are "holding"
onto Stanton suggesting there is no chance of a trade. But there could
be, I'm sure of it, because in the end, remember these words from Jeff
Loria himself, "We finished in last place. Figure it out." That to me is
the biggest F U ever to the city of Miami, because everyone knows that patience is part of
baseball. No one knows that better than the Yankees. We get players, we
lose and we come back the next year with a few additions and more hopes
and more dreams. Many times we lose, but many times we also win too... that's because Yankee brass never does is give up on the team and the believe it or not, us fans.
my estimation the Cashman will try somehow to get Stanton in pinstripes.
Why? Because despite what many think about Cashman, know this...and
write this down... He wants to win... He really does. Loria and the
Marlins? Well, that's another story...
