Marlins, Giancarlo Stanton Agree To 13-Year, $325MM Contract
By Mark Polishuk [November 17, 2014 at 9:11am CST]

The Marlins and slugger Giancarlo Stanton are in agreement on a record-setting 13-year, $325MM contract extension, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports. While the deal hasn’t yet been made official, Heyman reports that a press conference should be held later this week and “there is a clear understanding the deal will be finalized.

curious the Atlanta would trade Heyward when they need offense. And for a pitcher - last I knew their system was stocked with pitchers.

JJ - what do you think? You lost Shelby Miller in this deal.

Sox apparently sign hanley ramirez for 5 and 90 million. Not sure I like this move

or 3rd base - if he wants to move there.

He may have a better attitude now that he's not on the Marlins


at least your team is doing something - mine had one target and I'm hearing their backing off now. We're going to parade the same exact team out there - minus Hamels probably Mad

Reports are the Sox have signed Sandoval as well, His weight concerns me. I only want Lester back, I will trust the front office because they dont normally miss on free agents, we will see.

so if they sign panda and ramirez, it would appear that bogarts would be trade bait for someone, panda at third, hanley at shortstop and where would bogarts play. still not sure i like these deals, especially if they dump another 90 million on the panda, and not one pitcher signed.

me too, a left hander that can pitch at fenway is not a thing that comes along every day. and I still think he will be cheaper than scherzer

Lester to the Cubs, 6 yrs-155 million. Congrats Derek, you've got a new Ace. It's sad to see Jon go, I guess all of the Sox efforts will now turn to Scherzer, probably try to acquire Hamels as well.

why would they pay for Hamels when they wouldn't pay for Lester though?

I still have mixed feelings about trading him - that's the only move we have to make but the Phils don't have a great track record in getting decent prospects back.

I can see the Dodger being desperate enough to trade the farm for Hamels though.

The Red Sox have Clay Bucholz as a Starter, and he is it, they now have to pay or else it will be a 100 loss season. They were the other team in contention for Lester, but they weren't going to offer 6 years for a 31 year old pitcher(understandably). Now they will have to overpay Scherzer and sell the farm if they have to for Hamels.

He has been relatively healthy his while career, he is damn near unhittable in the postseason. Things are looking up for the lovable losers

its a good signing - even if he breaks down at the end you should get most of your money's worth

maybe the Cubs will still go after Hamels

that would be quite a 1-2 punch

I didn't realize you were down to Buckolz only.

isn't James Shields also out there? They don't necessarily need to overpay for someone.

do you have OF prospects? I think that's really the only thing they want for Hamels. We don't need middle infield, our bullpen is good (as long as they don't do anything stupid like trade one of them).

Boston is overloaded at OF, I don't want James Shields, he is not a big time pitcher, he's a 3 or 4 starter at best. If they can sign Scherzer he would be 1, trade for Hamels and he would be 2. Bucholz would be 3 and then maybe bring 2 guys up for 4 and 5.

I highly doubt that they will go after scherzer, he's gonna want 170 at least.
they will trade for a couple of pitchers, maybe james shields will come, but they won't pay scherzer if they weren't gonna pay lester.

we will see, but I am not surprised he didn't re-sign. if, by some miracle he manages to win a WS with the cubs, that will look pretty good on his resume and be something to be proud of fer sher

Absolutely, he would be the only person ever to win a World Series with the Cubs and Sox, but I think the Cubs still need to add some pieces.
