    'The Red Sox, Cardinals, Giants and Phillies are early contenders to put together a trade for Marlins superstar Giancarlo Stanton, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports (on Twitter). There has been “preliminary communication” regarding the right fielder between each of those teams and the Marlins, according to Morosi, who adds that talks are likely to “intensify” at next week’s general managers meetings.'

    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    I can't believe the Yanks and Dodgers aren't kicking the tries or waiting to swoop in at the last minute and steal the spotlight.

    I know both teams have expressed an interest in lowering payroll, but Stanton is "the man."

    This could become something pretty amazing:

    2016: Price

    2017: Sale

    2018: Stanton

    The Yankees are getting under the threshold to make a run at Harper. If we got Stanton, we’d have little room left to stay under the cap and improve the club.

    I honestly think we may make a big move for a pitcher via trade. We shall see

    I'm just happy that Sox are able to pursue high ceiling players.

    $25M a year is much less than Harper will get on the open market.

    I get the idea of going under the limit is a priority, and it will be easier to do so this year than next.

    I'll ask you this, is there any way that you can get Stanton and stay under the limit?

    1) The Marlins might pay part of his salary, if they can get a better return (which no team can do better than the Yanks)

    $22M Ellsbury
    $13M headley
    $13M Gardner
    $12.5M Robertson
    $8.5M S Castro

    I'm thinking the Yanks are at least considering "finding a way" to do both: get Stanton and reset the tax.

    2) Can you cut salary elsewhere? (Trade and eat part of vet contracts you hold now.)

    More players than we would want to believe are real jack-holes. This is going to cost Beckett some big bucks and possibly some jail time. Accountability for athletes is something foreign to them.

    • In a lengthy piece for the Providence Journal, Tim Britton urges against many reactionary moves suggested by Red Sox fans. The body of the article includes 24 fan suggestions for Dave Dombrowski that Britton sought out on Twitter. Among them are cases for why Boston shouldn’t trade for Giancarlo Stanton, why signing Eric Hosmer doesn’t make sense, and why they should neither shop David Price nor move him to the bullpen permanently. While many such suggestions from fans have obvious flaws in logic, Britton’s piece is well worth a read for his detailed perspective on each subject.

    Hey Tom,

    Who gives a hoot what you think. It is hard for me to believe that you draw a paycheck for writing this garbage. Do some journalistic work. Make some phone calls. visit Fenway. Get some real information about the plans for 2018. If you are just going to print your unsourced opinions, come here to TalkSox and duel it out with Moonslav and others, and let a real reporter/sportswriter have your job. We message board types look to print media for hard news to discuss, not weak-ass opinion.

    Oh and btw Tom, you are wrong about getting Stanton. He would be a huge get.

    Your criticism of this journalist got off on the wrong foot when you got his name wrong (a mistake you repeated in the closing).

    Maybe it was deliberate as he is a nonentity.

    'Giancarlo Stanton trade talks between the Red Sox and the Marlins “may be heating up,” according to a report in Saturday's Miami Herald. “They're definitely in play,” said the major-league source about the Red Sox, according to the newspaper.'

    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
