A. Why do they think the Marlins are going to move all their best players? Another "fire sale" or however you want to describe it will not go over well with the fanbase and is a bad way to start off for Jeter and company.
The Marlins owners have no money and have made it clear they are going to get rid of all costly players.
There was a rumor that the Marlins' new ownership approached Stanton to warn him that if he would not accept any trade, virtually all other players of value would be sold off around him. This leads me to believe it might not be a full-on fire sale.
The number being floated around for the Marlins projected target payroll is about 75MM. I'm sure they'd like to keep a couple of good players, at least.
I guess what I am saying here is that if/when Stanton is traded to SF/LAD, it's entirely possible that the fish elect to keep Ozuna and/or Yelich, freezing the Cards out of any of them. Which would be horsefeathering glorious.
