Are farm system is barren after our Bundy, Gausman, Schoop, and Machado if you still count him. Trading for Stanton could mean having to move two or three of them. We don't have a legit left field option for the future, but I don't think we can afford to trade for him.
It would be a great trade for us, but I don't see the Marlins biting.
Are you aware that they have been talking to Seattle? I would bet you that names like Danny Hultzen, Taijuan Walker, and Justin Smoak have been thrown around. Seattle simply has more almost ML ready elite prospects to trade than we do at this point. We need to have the prospects between 5 and 15 REALLY step up this year so we can be in that position next winter.

Does anyone REALLY think that Bundy and Schoop would get that trade done?
At this point we don't have enough surplus in our system to trade for him. To put a package together that would be enough to satisfy the Marlins would open holes in other areas. The teams to watch are (in order) 1) Seattle; 2) Texas; 3) Tampa.

READ CAREFULLY - we don't have anymore that they would want that we can afford to give up without hurting the team somewhere else.
