Going Going Gone: Marlins Officially Trade Slugger Giancarlo Stanton To Yankees

More Marlins deals are possible at the winter meetings beginning Sunday in Lake Buena Vista; Castro and outfielders Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna possibly are on the trading block.

So, read all about it here, as it happens.

"We spoke about the direction of the team", Stanton said of his meetings with Jeter and the front office, per Gabe Lacques of USA Today.

The witness continued, "2 Chainz stopped the track and told everyone to take a picture [of him and Giancarlo], explaining that this was Stanton's first moment as a Yankee and that the photo was going to be worth big money after the Yankees win the World Series".

Stanton nixed deals to St. Louis and San Francisco before waiving his no-trade clause to facilitate a trade to NY.

Russell Simmons 'Vehemently' Denies Rape and Sexual Misconduct Allegations in New Statement
Simmons admitted through an attorney that he participated in " inappropriate conduct " with Dixon when she worked for him. When Russell went to her bosses for help with the issue, she said she was told it was common behavior for Simmons.

On Saturday, the Yankees and Marlins agreed to a trade that sent Stanton, the reigning National League MVP, to the Yankees for infielder Starlin Castro and minor-leaguers Jorge Guzman and Jose Devers.

The Marlins received Starlin Castro, minor league pitcher Jorge Guzman and minor league infielder Jose Devers for Stanton and will also "send $30 million to the Yankees if Stanton doesn't exercise his right to opt out of his contract and become a free agent after the 2020 season: $5 million each on July 1 and October 1 in 2026, 2027 and 2028", per the Associated Press.

NY made the Headley trade (San Diego will absorb all of the $13 million on Headley's contract) in order to clear more room under the luxury tax threshold ($197 million), giving them a better opportunity to pursue a top-end starting pitcher or third baseman on the open market. St. Louis and San Francisco said Friday that Stanton had vetoed deals to them.

Yes, after hitting 59 home runs, Stanton is already drawing 70+ HR expectations when he moves to Yankee Stadium in 2018.

Yankees to re-sign Todd Frazier? "NY is going to love him". There's a DH spot too, and that's even more free with the trade of Chase Headley on Tuesday. Ellsbury is owed $21,142, 857 in each of the next three years as part of a deal that includes a $21 million team option for 2021 with a $1 million buyout. While Florida has no state income tax, New York State has an 8.82 per cent top rate on income and New York City a 3.876 per cent top rate.
