Best Memes of Giancarlo Stanton Traded to the New York Yankees

Best Memes of Giancarlo Stanton Traded to the New York Yankees

Neither player would come cheap - Martinez and Hosmer are clients of superagent Scott Boras, who reportedly is seeking contracts in the $200 million range for both sluggers - but at least would provide some spark in the middle of a Boston lineup that finished last in the American League in home runs last season. But Stanton has a 2020 opt out clause he might exercise.

Stanton is prepared to listen to a proposal involving the Yankees, according to sources.

NY exited the American League Championship Series at the hands of the Houston Astros this year, but the Yankees are the early favorites to win the World Series (5-1), according to OddsShark.

The Yankees have wanted all along to stay under the $197 million luxury tax threshold next season, and the money they received from the Marlins should help them do that. But as Stanton's control of the process has manifested through his no-trade clause, killing the potential for deals with the San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and other teams, the Yankees and Marlins re-engaged in talks earlier this week.

Of course, New York's trade for Stanton could set off a series of moves. They got one big salary off the books Thursday when they traded Dee Gordon to the Seattle Mariners for three minor leaguers.

A Stanton deal has been tougher.

The Yankees rocked baseball when they agreed to a deal with the Marlins on Saturday that would send them Stanton, the reigning National League MVP, in exchange for what many teams likely considered a pittance.

The Red Sox also could test the trade market, as the team has interest in Chicago Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber, ESPN's Scott Lauber reported Sunday, citing a source. "While we are disappointed in his decision, we will continue to make every effort to improve our club for the upcoming season".
