The Miami Marlins will soon be under new ownership and may be compelled to shop Giancarlo Stanton and his massive contract on the trade market.
Stanton's deal, which has 10 years and $295 million remaining, carries a full no-trade clause. The Marlins had the highest payroll in franchise history on Opening Day and will rank last in the National League in attendance for the fifth straight year.
There are rumors that Stanton may be tempted by a trade to a bigger market like New York, Los Angeles, Boston or even Philadelphia.
"Honestly, I've seen just about everything around here," Stanton said. "So I'm not worried. I'm literally just worried about tomorrow, the next hour. I know how everything works around here, so I'm not surprised, and not worried about two months from now or the off-season. I'll just be ready when I need to be, because that's more distractions that I don't need."
