It would be 4-1.
Whoa, there Cowboy! Don't get carried away. Stanton is a great young ballplayer, but no one has ever been trraded for a package like yours. It, as you said, unbelievable.Quote:

Essentially we would have to empty our farm system for a guy like Stanton.
It would be great to acquire him but it's not happening..
Sign me up for wheeler, tapia and Murphy, Duda and MDD
Stanton has the most power in baseball, he's proven, young, and cheap. He's not getting traded.
I know its 2 different sports but i think it would require something of the ilk of a Herschel Walker type trade to acquire Stanton.
He just would have so many bidders on the trade market (hypothetically) that someone would really have to blow the Marlins away.
So in other words, move along and find another OFer.
Here's an idea. Instead of gutting your farm to get one, spend a little money.
How about find an outfielder in the trade market whose salary is still reasonable, and who wouldn't require half the farm to obtain . . like Josh Willingham or Shin-Soo Choo?
Or we can just kidnap Stanton and hold him ransom for http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l91ISfcuzDw
