Giancarlo Stanton Trade Rumors: Star Won't Accept Red Sox, Cardinals Deals

Giancarlo Stanton Trade Rumors: Star Won't Accept Red Sox, Cardinals Deals

This report conflicts with a previous report from the Boston Herald's Chad Jennings, who was informed by a baseball source Monday that he's been told Stanton wouldn't accept a trade to the Red Sox or the St. Louis Cardinals, another team linked to the Marlins outfielder.

However, this being the Hot Stove season and all, NBC Sports Boston's Evan Drellich filed a report a short time later that says Stanton has not ruled out the Red Sox and is keeping an open mind.

"I do have a sense, and we'll keep that internally".

The Los Angeles Dodgers may have kicked the tires on Giancarlo Stanton, but "there is little momentum" on any trade talks with the Miami Marlins, tweets Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times. Jennings noted in an article published Tuesday that perhaps there's some flexibility in that stance, but Stanton's preference, of course, is a huge factor given that he has a full no-trade clause.

What do Insider Trends Have to Say About Gilead Sciences, Inc. (GILD)?
The biopharmaceutical company reported $2.27 earnings per share for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of $2.13 by $0.14. Alton Gregg H had sold 5,000 shares worth $325,114. ( GILD ) stock showed the move of -2.33% with the closing price of $71.15.

Stanton, 28, enjoyed the best season of his career this year, belting 59 home runs with 132 RBIs.

The Miami Marlins are under new ownership and they are looking to cut payroll.

Stanton has 10 years and $295 million remaining on his deal, and could get an additional $100,000 bonus for winning MVP.

Thus, it isn't surprising that it already appears there is a disconnect between the Marlins and interested teams when it comes to the potential compensation for Stanton. But it's a moot point if Stanton isn't willing to play in St. Louis.
