MLB Trade Rumors: Yankees still alive in Giancarlo Stanton trade talks

MLB Trade Rumors: Yankees still alive in Giancarlo Stanton trade talks

"Unfortunately we were not able to convince Stanton to waive his no-trade clause and join the Cardinals", team president John Mozeliak wrote. According to the Cardinals, they did not make Stanton's list.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have quietly kept their hand in the sweepstakes for Giancarlo Stanton, who is believed to have them as by far his No. 1 choice on his unofficial list of trade preferences.

Mueller's budget tops $3.2 million so far in Trump-Russia probe
In a statement, the special counsel's office said it will release a similar expenditure report after March 31, 2018. Mueller has issued indictments or received guilty pleas from four former Trump campaign associates.

The San Francisco Giants also announced Friday they were no longer in the mix to work out a trade for the Marlins slugger and NL MVP after having reached the parameters of a deal. His top choice has always been the Dodgers.

But logically, the only two teams likely to have the prospects or the motivation to get Stanton would be the Dodgers and the Yankees. Stanton will make $25 million in 2018 and has $295 million remaining over the last 10 years of his contract. They also may still need to sign another starting pitcher (after already giving Tyler Chatwood a three-year, $38 million deal on Thursday) and multiple good relievers in free agency.

3 dead, 15 hurt in New Mexico high school shooting
The school of about 900 students was cordoned off as authorities cleared the buildings and teens were taken to another location. The school is located in the Four Corners region and is near the Navajo Nation, about 180 miles north of Albuquerque.

There's still no definitive timetable for a Stanton trade, but it could easily happen during the upcoming winter meetings. Do they get desperate enough to eat a significant portion of his contract, to the point where the Dodgers - or even the Yankees - can't say no? The Yankees are trying to keep a handle on their payroll, and owner Hal Steinbrenner recently reiterated the team's desire to field a roster beneath MLB's $197 million luxury-tax threshold.

There are many hot takes on social media ripping Stanton for being so specific with his demands and not allowing a trade to the Cardinals or Giants, but that's his right.

As he did so, Pro Bowl Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown yelled the word "Karma" over and over in the background. Seeing an opportunity to take a free shot at Burfict, Smith-Schuster stuck his helmet into Burfict's jaw on a block.

All eyes have been on the Marlins and Stanton's possible trade.
