    We're preparing a "hefty" contract offer for Stanton per Joe Frisaro.

    7/100, option for 8th at $20m and 9th for $25m. [9/145]

    In year 3 of the deal, guarantee years 8 and 9, extend 7 more years at 155. [Or, 9/200, if you will]

    16 years, 300 million dollars.
  3. Hopefully those weren't his exact words

    So basically they will sign him to a big deal as a sign of good faith and find any reason/excuse to trade him at the deadline. Sounds fun.

    I still don't see him re-signing unless we vastly overpay him. I want Stanton here long term like everybody else, but I don't know if the Marlins can regain trust with him unless they start winning. This is a decently long rebuilding process we're involved in.

    It's been almost a year since the trade, and his only comment about anything relating to the organization was made about 20 minutes after it was announced. Who's to say he NEEDS to be overpaid? He might be perfectly happy as THE GUY that we build around and might accept the 7/100, which really isn't an overpayment, IMO.

    He's not going to sign unless he gets blown away with an offer, I would imagine.

    I'm not even that crazy about Stanton. Hope we don't overpay. Something like 10/350 is safe.

    I doubt he walks away from a set for life offer. Nobody does.

    Especially when he knows he will be playing somewhere else with another team paying whatever contract he signs within a year or so after signing it.

    I still imagine he'd sign. It would be foolish to turn down the kind of guaranteed money we're talking about with the risk of injury out there. He takes a 5 or 6 year deal here and when that contract is up then he's all set for the "big" deal, whether that's here or LA or wherever.

    The guy has "only" made 1.4 mil in his career so far and will get around 7 mil in 2014 probably. He would be an absolute moron to turn down a huge long term deal especially since he'd still be able to sign another large deal after it like HC said.

    Not like he would finish that contract in Miami anyway

    He needs a "trade me" clause that he can elect. It would be a first -- probably known as a "Loria" clause, forevermore.

    In any case, he'd be totally nuts not to sign any contract that is offered because somebody is going to pay him every single dime of the giant money.

    My thoughts exactly, he would sound like a rube
  18. Swartz (His projections are very accurate) has Stanton at $4.8m next year FWIW.

    Even more of a reason he'd accept a long term offer.
