Report: Stanton won't accept trade to Red Sox or Cardinals

  Report: Stanton won't accept trade to Red Sox or Cardinals If Giancarlo Stanton is going to be on the move this offseason, it appears two of the previously rumoured landing spots for the slugger have been crossed off his list. Stanton won't accept a trade to the Boston Red Sox or St. Louis Cardinals, a source told the Boston Herald's Chad Jennings.

The Giants are willing to take on Stanton ' s entire contract in a trade, Sirius XM's Craig Mish told Tim McKernan on "The Morning After," which he said makes San Francisco the favorite to land him, with the St. Louis Cardinals in second place.

The San Francisco Giants appear to be one of the front-runners to trade for National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton and they may be the favorite to do so because of one particular reason.

The Giants are willing to take on Stanton's entire contract in a trade, Sirius XM's Craig Mish told Tim McKernan on "The Morning After," which he said makes San Francisco the favorite to land him, with the St. Louis Cardinals in second place.

San Francisco appeared to be emerging as a favorite to land Stanton about a week ago, according to a source of MLB.com's Mark Feinsand, and offering to take on the $295 million remaining on his contract could be the most intriguing offer for a Miami Marlins franchise interested in reducing payroll.

Jeter confirms Marlins listening to offers for Stanton

  Jeter confirms Marlins listening to offers for Stanton New Marlins CEO Derek Jeter says the team is listening to trade offers for slugging outfielder Giancarlo Stanton and says Miami must make changes to stop losing money. Ahead of the first major league owners’ meeting since Bruce Sherman’s group bought the team last month and put the former New York Yankees captain in charge, Jeter said he has not spoken yet with Stanton. Jeter says "a lot of this started when he came out and expressed publicly that he didn’t want to be part of a rebuild." Stanton is guaranteed $295 million over the remaining 10 years of his contract.

And, the Giants are reportedly ready to open their wallets and then some for Stanton . San Francisco's front office is willing to take on Stanton ' s entire monster of a contract to acquire the superstar in a trade, according to Craig Mish of SiriusXM Radio.

In light of that, a report came out a few minutes ago that suggests the Giants — clearly in on Stanton since the season ended — are the clear favorites at this point. From @CraigMish on @TMASTL re: #STLCards and # Stanton : I have been told the #SFGiants are willing to take on the entire contract

Stanton apparently would not accept a trade to St. Louis in July, according to Mish, but was a maybe on San Francisco. Although Mish said things may have changed, he believes the Giants remain the front-runners despite Stanton's reported first choice actually being one of San Francisco's rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Giants reportedly offered the Marlins a trade package of second baseman Joe Panik, outfield prospect Chris Shaw, and right-hander Tyler Beede in exchange for Stanton and Dee Gordon.

The 28-year-old Stanton has been a hot offseason topic with as many as seven teams showing trade interest as of mid-November. The reported interest is of no surprise after the outfielder hit 59 home runs and drove in 132 runs for the Marlins last season, securing his first MVP and fourth All-Star appearance.
