I think we could offer Murphy, Duda,Fulmer,Mejia,Tapia and Montero and cash for Stanton. Put Wright at 2nd.Flores at 3rd
Yeah I know I'm getting flamed but Marlins historically have made some head scratching trades being on the bad end of that.
"I think we could offer Murphy, Duda,Fulmer,Mejia,Tapia and Montero and cash for Stanton."
More isn't always better.
'yea they will ASK for Harvey, Wheeler, etc....doesn't mean they would get them'
Then were Not getting him.
Guarantee you Texas would be willing to offer Profar+ top flight pitching prospects for Stanton.
He's cheap, he's 23, and he's already put up scary numbers. The Mets would HAVE to give up Wheeler+ to even be on the phone with Miami.
And I would pull the trigger right now. You're talking about the cleanup hitter for your team, who also plays good defense, for a decade. It's a no-brainer.
"Then we're not getting him."
How could you possibly know that? In you OPINION it would cost Wheeler...and maybe you're right...but there is no way of knowing until a trade actually happens.
harvey, wheeler, & tda are untouchable to me at the moment...i just wouldnt do it - not even for stanton...i respect that you disagree but im not gonna move those guys
im also iffy that texas would move profar, though i think theyd move andruws or any other person in the entire organization to get him
i think that synd, fulmer, nimmo, flores at least opens a dialogue and id probably do it, even though the system would be in shambles again after that trade (though we'd still have montero & tapia)...not sure its enough though to actually get him...
If you want Stanton you will have to give up: 1) Either Wheeler or D'Arnaud; 2) either Nimmo or Syndergaard 3) either Flores or Fulmer and 4) either Harvey or Niese.
The deal would be 4 for 2. They would throw in a decent prospect.
