'General framework' in place with both Giants, Cardinals on Stanton deal

'General framework' in place with both Giants, Cardinals on Stanton deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers have also been linked with interest in Stanton.

The Marlins have deals in place to trade Giancarlo Stanton to either the Giants and Cardinals. The question now is whether Stanton will waive his no-trade clause and go along with either.

Although this news makes a Stanton trade seem imminent, it's important to remember that he remains in control of his destiny.

The Dodgers' president of baseball operations, Andrew Friedman, is monitoring the Stanton talks with other teams and is aware that an opportunity might emerge over time, according to ESPN. The Dodgers are enamored with Stanton's power, but are concerned about the luxury-tax implications of trading for him.

But from what it sounds like, Stanton is willing to wait until the Dodgers are officailly ruled out.

The 27-year-old receiver expressed his interest in staying in Philadelphia when talking to media members last week. It allows the Eagles to take advantage of a period before Wentz would start earning money on a second contract.

With the December 11-14 winter meetings approaching, trade talks involving Stanton could come to a head in the coming days as the scaling-down Marlins are eager to shed most, if not all, the remaining $295 million of his contract.

Sunday, Jon Paul Morosi of MLB Network reported the Marlins indeed agreed to trade frameworks with the Giants and Cardinals.

If it comes down to the Giants and Cardinals, then we're by far the favorite.

One team that is showing decreased interest in Stanton is the Boston Red Sox, as SiriusXM's Craig Mish reports they have chose to end their pursuit of him.

The Giants have reportedly offered second baseman Joe Panik, two promising minor leaguers (right-hander Tyler Beede and first baseman Chris Shaw) and two first-round draft choices for Stanton, who won the NL MVP honors while hitting 59 home runs with 132 RBIs last season.
