Red Sox Trade Talks Over Giancarlo Stanton 'Heating Up,' Report Says

Red Sox Trade Talks Over Giancarlo Stanton 'Heating Up,' Report Says

Red Sox owner John Henry and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski confirmed as much last week.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports is reporting that the Red Sox are not aggressively pursuing Stanton - at least yet.

"I would not get specific on any player but try to do our due diligence in every regard", said Dombrowski.

They were again indebted to Rodriguez on Sunday when he cleared a goal-bound header from Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans . Switzerland were quicker and stronger and started to create the better chances, but could not finish Northern Ireland off.

The first is whether or not Stanton, who has a full no-trade clause, wants to even play in Boston. Reports indicate that the Marlins will have more in-depth trade talks at the meetings in Orlando.

We know how quickly things can change during the Major League Baseball offseason, but it would make sense for the Red Sox and other teams to consider options outside of a player who is not a free agent and is still owed $295 million over 10 years.

Stanton, 27, has 3 more seasons before he can opt out of his deal with the Marlins, making $77 million in that time.

Next week's General Manager Meetings could provide further clarity on just how interested the Red Sox are.

Another NL team looking into Stanton, among other big hitters, is the Cardinals. Other teams could be in the mix as well, or enter the fray later.

Imagine the number of home runs Giancarlo Stanton might hit if he played half his games at Fenway Park.

It is to be noted that this is not the first case of violence against the workers of the right-wing group in the state. However, CPI (M)'s Thrissur district unit refuted the allegations charging the party with a role in the latest murder.

The Cardinals appear to be the early favorite to acquire Stanton, however. Top among them in the free agent market are J.D. Martinez, Eric Hosmer and Carlos Santana. He has stated only that he would like to be part of a winning team - something he's never experienced in his eight seasons with the Marlins - and doesn't wish to be part of a rebuild, which is expected to occur in Miami with new ownership.
