So why wouldn't they consider trading a great ballplayer now (when they're not going anywhere) for a chance to have one or two outstanding players and a couple more quality regulars down the road, to help them get back into the picture?
    That package may get their attention, but then you'll have another team come along and blow that package away. The market will push the price up to top prospects.

    Figures that year, the Mets had 2 draft picks before the Giancarlo Stanton pick and those 2 picks i think arent even in our system any longer. The pick went to the Marlins right before our 3rd pick in that draft.
    Half of our problems is the scouting department, thats why they get paid the big bucks and fail miserably at their job. Thats why it was a bigggggg surprise they went after Nimmo, usually they always want kids ready to fly through the ranks, never have patience, i see that paid off over the years

    Guys, if we want Stanton, we'd probably have to give up Wheeler, as Stanton made $480,000 in 2012 and is due for only a small raise as he isn't yet eligible for arbitration. In other words, he going to be a cheap legit #4 power hitter for the Marlins. It would be pretty hard for them to let him go, and we'd have to blow the Marlins away.

    BUT I have an idea. If we get d'Arnaud in the Dickey trade, why not just trade d'Arnaud and another non-Wheeler prospect to the Marlins for Stanton???? Or at least offer that.

    But you all have to understand. The Marlins would have to get blown away, as they seem to be doing their typical rebuilding for a run 4-5 years from now. These packages of Familia/Mejia/Flores will not do the trick.

    Guys this is way to early speculation on players we haven't even gotten yet. Wait til TUE before you start trading Snydergaard...and why all the hype about an A ball pitcher---we have three guys now who have stuff like his higher up in the organization...is this guy some guaranteed star? I want Gose...not another pitcher two to three years away.

    Is Stanton under control through 2016 by Miami?

Having all that hitting like the Yankees and the Rangers aren't guaranteed a World Series without good pitching. I'd loveeeee Stanton but not at the expense of over paying with pitching. I'd rather overpay with bats.
    Then you are not getting Stanton.

    Its not worth it for us. The price would be too high. I rather keep what we got and add a FA or two in the coming years to beef up the OF.

    Stanton is good, but I rather not trade the whole farm for Giancarlo.

    Guess I wasn't too far off about flipping Noah and other prospects to get an outfielder. I aimed high for Stanton even before trade was official. Stanton is a stretch but hey you never know. I was ridiculed though for flipping Noah before we even got him.

    I would think Syndergaard, Familia, Nimmo, Flores, Fullmer, Duda and Tapia could potentially get it done but our farm would be crippled.

    Quality over quantity.

    Niese, Wheeler, Syndergaard and Flores might get it done.

    Giancarlo Stanton- Can we flip Noah and Flores as a starting centerpiece for Stanton?

    If Miami wanted Syn they could have included him in that huge trade they just made and I am sure the Jays asked about Stanton and didn't have enough to get anything going. JMO though.

    Way too much. They can keep Stanton. If it takes that much for him what would it take to get a Buster Posey or Mike Trout then? The entire minor league system?

    Miami is going to ask for the stars, the sun and the moon for Stanton. It's going to require some team liquidating their farm system for his services.
