In another embarrassing fire sale, the Miami Marlins may be looking to flip one of the best players in the Major Leagues.

If any of these five teams can swing a trade for Stanton, they immediately become instant contenders in 2013. 

Even though the Miami Marlins are claiming to have no interest in trading young slugger Giancarlo Stanton, there are five teams with the ammo to change Jeffrey Loria's mind in an instant.

The always-embarrassing Miami Marlins front office can now turn their focus onto trading their disgruntled superstar for a bunch of top prospects, expiring contracts, new stadium or whatever it is they want to do. 

Not the way you want your best player to feel about your team. And to be honest, he had every right to feel that way. But I digress. 

Back to actual baseball transactions, there are five teams that have the ability and guts to pull off a trade for this once-in-a-generation talent.
