Marlins Put a Record $300M Deal for Stanton to Decide on

Miami Marlins have targeted Giancarlo Stanton potentially as their huge part of future, willing to make a record-breaking offer with the right fielder. If consummated, Stanton will surpass Miguel Cabrera’s $292 million extension and become the first $300 million player in baseball.

The runner-up for National League MVP and the Marlins have been discussing on the 10-year contract, confirmed by MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro. Fox Sports’ Ken Posenthal first reported the deal on Thursday night. According to him, “The two sides are discussing a deal that would be for at least 10 years and at least $300 million, according to major-league sources. Stanton’s representatives also have discussed shorter contracts with the Marlins, and the mere fact that the sides continue to talk is a sign of progress. Stanton’s agent, Joe Wolfe, declined comment.”

Earlier this week, Michael Hill, Marlins president of baseball operations, spoke of recent negotiations between the two side as “positive”. He stated: “I think we all recognize as a team, we had a better year.” “We’re having continual dialogue,” Marlins general manager Dan Jennings said. “I wouldn’t say we’re close to anything.”

For the 25-year-old man, that will be a huge decision and no one but himself knows for sure where his heart lies. Nevertheless, if the contract is signed, Stanton is expected to stay in Florida at least through his age-34 season.
