Giants, Cardinals 'in the Dark,' Longshot Team Out on Giancarlo Stanton

According to Fox Sports, if Stanton isn't dealt to either the Giants or the Cardinals over the next few days, the reason could be that the Dodgers have gotten involved in trade talks with the Marlins. In fact, previous suggestions were that the Giants themselves might be favored to land the slugger. The player's reps have already met with the San Francisco Giants' brass and were granted permission by the Miami franchise to pursue similar conversations with the St. Louis Cardinals. In fact, America's heartland seems to be his last choice here. As Morosi highlighted, though, Stanton has the ability to all but cease ongoing trade negotiations if he wants to hold out until another team enters the mix. Stanton can control where he goes since he has a full no-trade clause, and as such, he is waiting to see how much interest the Los Angeles Dodgers have, according to MLB Network's Jon Morosi. Flaherty is rated as St. Louis' No. 3 prospect, and Alcantara is ninth. But he's taken a deliberate approach in considering his options, in part because he wanted to make sure the Dodgers - his preferred destination - have every opportunity to get involved.

The Dodgers have been somewhat hesitant on Stanton due to their desire not to exceed the $197 million luxury tax threshold or add another nine-figure contract to the books beyond Clayton Kershaw's.

Charles, Mo., on November 29, President Trump referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as "Little Rocket Man" and "sick puppy". The claim was not proven and experts have cast doubt on the country's ability to master such technology.

Stanton has $295 million remaining on his 13-year deal worth $325 million. Stanton could ask that the opt-out be moved to a different point in the contract, as a condition for waiving his no-trade clause.
