I'm interested in knowing how is recent conversations have gone with Samson, Loria and the front office. Assuming he doesn't trust any direction they set, he probably needs reassurance and won't sign on for too long.

Obviously hoping it works out.

Well I know its just one measly interview on a random day in spring training but that's definitely the most positive and straightforward we've heard Stanton in over a year.

Most other interviews have been "eh yeah Im happy, I guess, maybe, sorta ehhh actually I don't wanna talk about it." Maybe they just caught him in a really good moment.

Maybe to all of the above. Trying to sign him right after the debacle of 2012 would have been counter productive. And I can't blame him for not wanting to talk long term contract now. Trying to force something on him right now would also be counter productive. It would be like telling him that him and his reps are too stupid to know what is best for him. We know better, so shut up and sign on the dotted line. Better to let him take his time and just see how things transpire. He knows he's getting another hefty raise again next off season no matter what. The real question is whether or not he wants to stay here.

He'll go where the money is; the Marlins won't have it. They already blew their chance to sign him affordably.

I think this is absolutely the last chance that the Marlins have to prove to Stanton that they are moving in the right direction. If they can some how be competitive this year and start to push through on expectations and Loria mans up and actually decides to invest some real money into this team, then I think there is a good chance Stanton sticks around for years to come.

Now another 100-loss season and another fire sale and we can start seeing Stanton jerseys going on deep sale before too long.

If we have another 100 loss season, Stanton won't have a choice cause he'll be the first one shipped out to initiate the next fire sale.

There is nothing to really sell off right now.

Well they can move Stanton, but yeah other than that there isn't a lot to trade.

Juan Rodriguez indicates that if the Marlins offered a contract along 8 years/146 mill should be about the right number to sign Stanton but if they wait to the off-season it will likely be rejected by Stanton

I just think a resolution has to come soon, because Jose and Yelich, honestly, should get extended as early as next winter if Miami is serious about keeping a home grown core.

Those are more than fair offers to extend him...

I would be surprised if this team offered him Mike Trout money. I think that's high anyway.

Stanton is not going to sign a contract for that "low" amount to wipe out all his free agency years and not give a second opportunity at a large mega contract, which is the whole point. Trout will be a free agent in his prime. This cannot be emphasized enough. The Marlins would have to step up to a $175-200 mil deal for 8 years (assuming he is awesome and what we all expect).

A much more realistic scenario if this is going to happen (which I think not and they trade him) is a 4-5 year extension at a lot of money, $20 million annual range. This allows him to be a free agent in prime (29-30 years old) to get an insane deal, and that kind of money sets him up for life and then some. There is still something to be said about a player 3 full years away from free agency where they'd sacrifice a few free agency years even if the Marlins have overwhelmingly blown it. That's where the focus needs to be with Stanton. Get 2-3 free agency years and feel happy you get those because you neglected to sign him 2012-2013 like a bunch of idiots.
