The Yankees bolstered their lineup with the addition of Giancarlo Stanton. But the Marlins threatened to keep him in Miami for life.

 

Nothing this offseason will come close to the Giancarlo Stanton trade to the Yankees. New York gave up practically nothing to acquire Stanton, who rejected offers from the Cardinals and Giants. News broke after the trade became official on Monday that the Marlins wanted to decide where Giancarlo would land. 

 

Talk about calling a bluff. Stanton’s agent, Joel Wolfe, said that the slugger wasn’t even phased by his former clubs remarks.

 


The reasoning to why the Marlins wanted to keep Giancarlo out of New York are obvious, knowing that is was one of the cities he wanted to go to. They tried to push him to a place where they would get good prospects in return, not pay a lot, and make sure he wasn’t a threat.

With the addition of Stanton, the Yankees are now the new World Series favorites, at 5-1. At the end of the day, Stanton basically told the Marlins to get lost and is now a Yankee. That lineup in the Bronx is going to be exciting for the future.
