This past offseason, the Miami Marlins went through their own version of Extreme Makeover.

A new name, a new logo, new uniforms, a new manager, a new stadium and a gaggle of new players that cost owner Jeffrey Loria over $190 million.

However, as President Barack Obama famously said during his 2008 campaign, "You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig."

What's more, ESPN's Buster Olney dropped a bit of bombshell on Tuesday, saying that if the Marlins become sellers at the end of the month, they would be willing to discuss every player on the roster, including Giancarlo Stanton.

Stanton, just 22 years old, is under team control through the 2016 season and not even arbitration-eligible until 2014. Those facts alone put his value through the roof.
