Do we need Giancarlo Stanton? Nope, but man oh man could you imagine Aaron Judge and Stanton roaming the same outfield? The New York Daily News writes:

"According to a report, the Marlins slugger named the Yankees among three other teams he’d be willing to accept a trade. The 2017 NL home run king reportedly went so far as to even say he is “inclined” to accept a move to the Bronx.

Despite having an exorbitant price tag, the Yankees are apparently “kicking the tires” on Stanton, whom Marlins owner Derek Jeter has been actively shopping since taking over the strapped franchise.

The other teams Stanton, 28, will now approve a trade to are the Dodgers, Cubs and Astros. He took meetings with both the Giants and Cardinals last week in Los Angeles, and a deal is in place with both teams, but on Thursday it came out that the reigning NL MVP does not want to join either team."

Look, that is really all that's coming out of this report.  So don't go nuts.  But it is interesting that this guy has a no-trade clause and it's suddenly more relaxed when it comes to certain teams.  I love that the Yankees are on the "green light" list, but I worry about the Yankees willing to trade away the great prospects we have to make it happen.

It will be interesting to see... stay tuned...
