Could the New York Yankees pull off a trade to land Stanton in the Bronx?
With both Nick Swisher and Ichiro Suzuki as free agents, the Yankees have a vacancy in right field for next season.
If you ask me, putting Stanton in right field for the Yankees makes a lot of sense, both financially and talent-wise.
Over the last six months, the Marlins have gotten rid of Hanley Ramirez, Anibal Sanchez, Omar Infante, Heath Bell, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle and Jose Reyes; plus they fired manager Ozzie Guillen after just one season.
It's safe to say the Marlins will not be competing anytime soon for the postseason.
If I am Yankees GM Brian Cashman, this is my trade proposal to offer to Marlins GM Michael Hill in hopes to land Stanton.
