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. "He may take a lot of time before he's ready to make that call". Stanton is from Sherman Oaks, grew up a Dodger fan and also owns a home in the Hollywood Hills.
Well being that Eazy is a Berkeley native, coming to San Francisco would give Stanton the chance to maybe start a bromance with the Bay Area rapper.
Dallas County Sheriff to officially run for Texas Governor
Valdez's campaign said she will "officially notify" Dallas County commissioners of her decision to run for governor this morning. First elected to the sheriff's office in 2004, Valdez was re-elected three more times in 2008, 2012 and 2016.
Should the Giants sign Ohtani, Evans said that they'd enable him to pitch as well as play the outfield. "But our terms with the Marlins are clear". They also view a team that hasn't necessarily been in the mix as the greatest threat. They'd like to get under that that bar at some point, so as to reset their penalty clock (the penalties get steeper the more consecutive years you're above the cutoff).
Stanton does have the Dodgers on a list of teams he would accept a trade to, however it is unclear what other teams are on the list. The upshot is that taking on a contract like Stanton's would make it hard for them to get under the threshold. However, the feeling is that he will probably approve the deal. However, for a team with a below-market TV contract, no ballpark naming-rights deal, and major troubles selling tickets, the best path to cutting costs is first and foremost trading Stanton. However due to Stanton's full no trade clause, he has the final say in whether or not the deals will be finalized. "Other scenarios as well exist that address our needs". Stanton reportedly has no interest playing in St. Louis. And beyond all that.
