Giants, Cardinals 'in the Dark,' Longshot Team Out on Giancarlo Stanton

Giancarlo Stanton Stats | Baseball-Reference.com

Giancarlo Stanton #27 of the Miami Marlins during the game between the Miami Marlins and the San Francisco Giants at Marlins Park on August 15, 2017 in Miami, Florida.

Few players get to name their landing spot, but Stanton's full no-trade clause would, theoretically, give the National League MVP the power to decline every deal that did not send him to the Dodgers. Team officials Bobby Evans and Brian Sabean met with the Stanton camp Thursday in Southern California to make their pitch, and Cardinals executives did the same Friday. In fact, America's heartland seems to be his last choice here.

If the Giants trade for Giancarlo Stanton, their fans would know he left his heart in Los Angeles. If the meetings had occurred while talks between the teams were still fluid, the Marlins would've risked losing leverage if Stanton agreed to be dealt to one team and not the other. MLB.com's Mark Feinsand also reported that, while there has been plenty of momentum toward a trade this week, it wasn't expected to happen Sunday.
