Giants Expect Giancarlo Stanton Decision This Week; Dodgers Biggest Threat

Giancarlo Stanton holds all the cards after framework for deals is agreed upon

Giants feel Stanton meeting went well but they continue to wait

Schulman believes that the Giants may have an answer on Stanton, and the fate of Japanese sensation Shohei Otani, who put the Giants on his shortlist of teams, before next Monday.

The San Francisco Giants have agreed to take Giancarlo Stanton.

MLB Network's Jon Morosi previously reported the Marlins would accept a deal of Beede, Shaw and Joe Panik if the Giants committed to paying at least $250 million of the $295 million remaining on Stanton's contract.

It is no secret that the Dodgers have been on the top of Giancarlo Stanton's list, and his full no-trade clause gives him the final say.

The Justice Department under Sessions, and DHS under Nielsen, will share in enforcing different portions of immigration law. Although several Democrats voted to confirm Nielsen, some expressed concern over the 45-year-old's experience level.


You know this, of course, and it's why teams in pursuit of Stanton must not only strike a deal with the Marlins but also persuade Stanton to approve said deal. He still has quite a few years left and doesn't want to waste them in Miami. That's especially the case now that the punishments are even more costly under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Pavolvic aslo notes that the Giants view the Dodgers as their biggest threat to the trade for the National League MVP, not the Cardinals, who have been pursuing Stanton as well.

"The specifics of the deal are not something that we feel comfortable discussing, but ultimately our hope is that if he does choose to come here, we'll be able to fold him in with a winning club", Evans said Wednesday. On the other hand, if San Francisco acquires him they could potentially be giving away quite a bit of their future in the form of both payroll and prospects.

In short, the Giants and Marlins have done the easy part - agreeing with each other. Thus, said Evans, Stanton called AT&T Park "one of his favorite places to play on the road".
