Giancarlo's leverage right now


If you're going to tear it down, you cant keep little bits and pieces. It all should go. What can be done, and in my eyes should be done, is a trade between the Rangers and Marlins with, as hard as this is for me to say, Giancarlo Stanton as the centerpiece. Texas has missed out on Josh Hamilton and Justin Upton, so the next best thing, or in reality the best of the three, is Stanton. If I was GM I offer Nathan Eovaldi RHP, Stanton RF, Henderson Alvarez RHP, and Ricky Nolasco RHP to Texas for Jurickson Profar SS, Mike Olt 3B, Leonys Martin CF, Martin Perez LHP, and Cody Buckel RHP. Before you say, "No way Texas gives up 5 of their top 7 prospects for Stanton and a bunch of scrubs," if you look at it the way I did you see an innings eater in Nolasco (Texas has other injury problems in their rotations). A young flamethrower for the bullpen or rotation in Eovaldi, and a groundball pitcher in a fly ball park that fits nicely in Alvarez also young.

The Marlins get back a shortstop, third baseman, center fielder, and two starting pitchers of the future. We shift Hechavarria to second base (I believe Solano was a fluke) and all of a sudden our infield is LoMo at first, Hech at second, Profar at short, Olt at third, and Brantly at catcher. Our outfield has Yelich, Leonys Martin, and either Marisnick or Ozuna. The rotation shapes up with a combination of Fernandez, Heaney, Perez, Nicolino, Jacob Turner or Buckel. Obviously we have a lot of depth and while not every one is an All-Star, they should make a great core for the future.*

*I don't expect Texas to automatically say yes, and pieces may be added/subtracted such as bullpen etc.
