-Uh, about that 'Free Giancarlo Stanton' column ... I take it all back | FOX Sports
Some might suggest that is a good idea, considering the column I wrote about the Marlins on July 24, entitled, "Free Giancarlo Stanton." "C’mon Marlins, get on with it already," I began.
-Giancarlo Stanton's opt-out may not be bad news for Marlins - CBSSports.com
At first blush, this would seem to be a troublesome wrinkle from the Marlins' standpoint. They'll pay dearly to lock up Stanton until his late 30s, but then Stanton can simply tear up the contract if he decides he can do better on the market. However, if Stanton winds up opting out, it won't be bad news for the Marlins -- at all.
-Giancarlo Stanton may actually prove to be worth reported $325M contract - MLB - SI.com
Baseball is reportedly on the verge of having its first $300 million man. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has reported that the Marlins have an agreement in place with slugger Giancarlo Stanton for a 13-year, $325 million extension, the largest in the history of North American professional team sports. If it plays out to its conclusion, the contract would run through 2027, though an opt-out clause could open the door for Stanton to receive an even bigger payday.

The Marlins are no longer pinching pennies, and Giancarlo Stanton won't be, either. Stanton agreed to terms with the team Monday on a $325 million, 13-year contract, Miami owner Jeffrey Loria said. It's the most lucrative deal for an American athlete and averages $25 million per season, or $154,321 per game.

Will be curious to see how many premiere players will want to join #Marlins lineup w/ Stanton. Suddenly #MarlinsPark could be trendy— Joe Frisaro (@JoeFrisaro) November 17, 2014
Key here, Stanton deal allows young team to grow together w/o urgency to win it all in '15. #Marlins now have 6-yr window— Joe Frisaro (@JoeFrisaro) November 17, 2014
Now that #Marlins have signed Stanton to record deal, I have just one question: when will they be trading him? #trackrecord— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) November 17, 2014
Marlins' 13-year contract with Giancarlo is done, according to involved person. Fox reports opt out is after 6 yrs with full no trade clause— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) November 17, 2014
In what world do the Marlins lock up their star right fielder and the #Braves trade theirs for next to nothing? This one, I guess.— Joe Morgan (@joe_morgan) November 17, 2014
Congrats to the Marlins for committing to pay Stanton twice as much as they were willing to put toward their new stadium.— Jason Collette (@jasoncollette) November 17, 2014
