Fish Not Close To Stanton Deal, Giants Are Closest

Fish Not Close To Stanton Deal, Giants Are Closest

According to a report by USAToday's Bob Nightengale, the Miami Marlins are not close to trading superstar Giancarlo Stanton—but, the San Francisco Giants have been the "most aggressive" in that pursuit. This begs the question of whether the Red Sox are even seriously in on the Stanton Sweepstakes. While rumors have been flying all week about whether or not Boston is in play, it now appears that they are not. Stay tuned—this could all change in a matter of hours!

Joey Votto falls short in National League MVP voting by just 2 votes

Joey Votto falls short in National League MVP voting by just 2 votes

The first baseman fell to Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins in the 4th-closest NL MVP vote of all time. Joey Votto was close. He was oh, so close. In arguably his best season as a Cincinnati Red, the first baseman was just 2 votes shy of notching his second Most Valuable Player award, barely losing out to Marlins’ outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. This is the third time that Votto has finished in the top 3 in MVP voting in his career, winning the award in 2010 and getting third in 2015. While both players had outstanding seasons, and Stanton was certainly deserving of the award, it is hard...

Pitch Clock Inches Closer To 2018 Implementation In MLB

Pitch Clock Inches Closer To 2018 Implementation In MLB

Something happened at the MLB meetings in Florida today that has nothing to do with Giancarlo Stanton. We know, we know—that's very hard to believe. But in fact, MLB’s Chief Legal Officer Dan Halem told the press that a pitch clock could actually be in place in Major League Baseball for the 2018 season. Any such change—part of a broader 'pace-of-play' agreement with the MLB Players Association— would need to be finalized by early January to start this season. But, given the general consensus on the issue between players and owners, it actually has a good chance of happening. The...

Jeter's Management Style: 'If The Phone Rings, It's Not Me'

Jeter's Management Style: 'If The Phone Rings, It's Not Me'

If you had just taken over ownership of an MLB franchise with a highly sought-after mega-star, you'd probably want to talk to the dude, right? No, no, no! Not if you're a graduate of the Derek Jeter School Of Executive Leadership. According to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand, Derek Jeter admitted today that he hasn't spoken with Giancarlo Stanton since he took over the reins of the Marlins. Think of it, the media has been shopping around his $295 million asset everyplace from Boston to Philly to St. Louis to San Francisco—and the ex-captain of The Bronx Embalmers hasn't even checked in with the...

REPORT: Giancarlo 'Completely Open-Minded' On Destination

Welcome to the BizarroWorld of Giancarlo Stanton rumors. As you know, we've committed to vetting rumors so that only multiple sources make it through our "sieve". So, here goes: NBCSportsBoston (which we think used to be ComcastSportsNet NewEngland, but we're not really sure) cites "a person with knowledge of the slugger's thinking" that Stanton is "completely open-minded" about his possible landing spots—including Boston. So, that's two sources this morning with more positive assessments about Stanton donning Carmine Hose. Once again, however, take all of these reports (even the ones that...

REPORT: Red Sox Still

REPORT: Red Sox Still "In Play" For Giancarlo Stanton

You know things have gotten nutty when Giancarlo Stanton stories are being broken by local TV sports guys in Providence, Rhode Island. WJAR-TV's Joe Kayata (yeah we've never heard of him, either) cites a "source" telling him that the Red Sox are "still very much in play" for Stanton. Moreover, Kayata's source claims that the sole reason Stanton wasn't keen on Boston initially was the cold weather. Duh! Hey, Giancarlo, what the heck did you expect? We get four seasons here in New England. Deal with it. Anyway, this un-named source goes to say that Stanton's #1 choice is the Dodgers (who today...
