Stanton is going to spend more time on the DL than he will be in the lineup over the course of the next three years. If he can't stay healthy when he's young, it's only going to get worse as he ages.


He played 159 games last year.


And getting a fastball to the face doesn’t make on injury prone. This is a weird take that’s more commonly accepted on the internet than it should be.

Well, he's also got nagging hamstring issues and basically broke his wrist from swinging the bat.

Yeah, Stanton has played in 6 full seasons and exceeded 125 games 3 times.

So the Dodgers don’t get him and the Yanks are basically out on Harper now. This is a pretty perfect scenario.

Sorry if someone already mentioned this, but Rotoworld expects the Marlins to flip Starlin to another team to shed his salary

I'm thinking more like a NBA superfriend contract, but with a few player opt-outs after years 2 and 4. 6/150. That gives him FA options after age 28, 30, and 32 seasons, depending on when he's tired of winning WS and wants to then go sign the absurd parachute contract at 10-12 years at bonkers money.

There must be an unwritten rule that Starlin Castro has to be traded to a crap team after enduring a rebuild and then making it to the Championship Series. Poor guy.

Because he'd presumably be part of a package deal with Yelich since the Marlins are trying to dump salary.

I’d be down for something centered around Javy for Starlin and Yelich. Or some sort of 3-team trade where Javy ends up in Miami, we end up with Yelich and Starlin ends up on a 3rd team.

Fair enough. If we got Starlin back I’d do it but if it’s a 3 team deal I probably wouldn’t now that I think of it. I’d send them Almora or Happ and Seal boy with Starlin going to a 3rd team and us getting Yelich. With some other ancillary pieces involved all around and maybe another Marlins contract as well. Maybe something like......

Mets get: Starlin and Ziegler
Cubs get: Yelich and Volquez
Marlins get: Almora/Happ, LaStella, Nimmo and maybe some minor leaguers

That would clear between $30-35 million from the Marlins payroll this year plus Starlin and Yelich long-term on top of it. They get two young, cheap, position players that can play the OF to replace Yelich and Stanton and a 2B to replace Gordon/Starlin and probably would get some minor leaguers too.

I irrationally don't want to move Baez at all. I enjoy it far too much when other team's fans hate both Baez and Contreras for basically everything they do. It's nice to be on the positive end of that after so many years.

Starlin doesn't have negative value. And if the Marlins want to stop a complete boycott of their team, they're not going to attach Yelich, who has a ton of value, with a horsefeathers contract.

They can move the Ziegler, Tozawa, and Volquez contracts by attaching a comp pick or top 10 in their system prospects.
