While it may make little sense to trade a dynamic player like Stanton from a purely baseball perspective, Miami's new ownership is reportedly looking to significantly cut payroll.

Olney added that those same execs feel the asking price is "somewhat out of touch with reality" given Stanton's monstrous contract.

If you were hoping that Giancarlo Stanton lands in Boston this offseason, this news will upset you. If the Marlins want several top prospects in return for Stanton, they are going to have to be willing to eat some of the $295 million he is still owed over the next 10 years.

Stanton does have a player option for 2021 and beyond, although it is unlikely he would opt out of such a lucrative contract.

It's a given that baseball contracts are going to be frightful in their final years, but Stanton is slated to make $30 million a year in his late-30s. The Miami Slugger has a no-trade clause, giving him the ability to nix any deal from the Marlins.

It will be a costly addition, but whichever team trades for Stanton will instantly bolster their lineup with a 28-year-old who slashed.281/.376/.631 with 59 home runs and 132 RBI in 2017.
