The Miami Marlins Are Giving An Ultimatum To Disgruntled Star Giancarlo Stanton

It is no secret that the Dodgers have been on the top of Giancarlo Stanton's list, and his full no-trade clause gives him the final say.

The San Francisco Giants expect that the Giancarlo Stanton saga will be complete soon.

Stanton's preferred destination is rumored to be the Los Angeles Dodgers, but both the Giants and Cardinals have reportedly made deals.

It makes sense, too.

Morosi reported on December 3 the Marlins have agreed to the "general framework" of trades proposed by the Giants and St. Louis Cardinals for Stanton, but both deals were being held up while Stanton decides if he will agree to a trade. Stanton is from Sherman Oaks, grew up a Dodger fan and also owns a home in the Hollywood Hills.

Miami's motivation for shopping Stanton is, of course, the $295 million he has left on the 13-year, $325 million contract he originally signed in November of 2014. The upshot is that taking on a contract like Stanton's would make it hard for them to get under the threshold.

Schulman believes that the Giants may have an answer on Stanton, and the fate of Japanese sensation Shohei Otani, who put the Giants on his shortlist of teams, before next Monday.

If Stanton passes on a trade to the Giants or Cardinals, then the Dodgers will be in a good spot. However, the feeling is that he will probably approve the deal.

It's previously been reported that Stanton prefers the Giants to the St. Louis Cardinals.

San Francisco is looking to bounce back from a surprising season that ended with a last-place finish the NL West at 64-98.
