I don't see the Yankees trying to get Giancarlo Stanton. With Aaron Judge in right field, and the money that is owed to Stanton in that monster contract, it doesn't make much sense.  So know that when you read this latest report attributed to Jon Heyman, but written by writes:

"...According to WFAN baseball insider Jon Heyman, the Marlins and Yankees had a brief discussion about Stanton during the General Manager Meetings in Orlando Florida.Now, just how serious the Yankees are about potentially acquiring the best power hitter in the game, a guy coming off a 59-home run season who is a favorite to win the NL MVP Award when the announcement is made on Thursday night, is not really known. Heyman characterized the discussion between Marlins GM Michael Hill and the Yankees’ Brian Cashman as nothing more than Miami asking if New York has interest in Stanton and the Yankees’ responding that they would listen to the Marlins’ proposal.

So, it’s safe  to say discussions between the sides are in the very early stages."

Don't read anything into it yet, please.  I'm not. It's flashy, it's interesting and I firmly believe it will amount to nothing.

Thanks Jon Heyman.
