If some team was going to come along and broker a deal with the Marlins that would break the spirit of young Giancarlo Stanton, I can’t say I’m not glad it was us, but I wish no ill on the poor remaining Marlins star, Giancarlo Stanton, who… uh… doesn’t quite seem to be coping well:
Agent joel wolfe says giancarlo feels “same” since unhappy tweet after trade. “It wasn’t a reaction, it’s a state of mind.”

I mean, awesome! But… aww.
And while this may seem like an awfully good time to go fishing to get him out of Miami– and hey, he already knows a bunch of guys on the Jays, right? Would fit right in!– according to a follow-up tweet from Heyman, Stanton apparently hasn’t requested a trade.
I’d still offer Miami my whole farm system for him, just to be safe.
And while I try to not be one for laughing at the misery of others, and I really do feel for the fans in Miami, I’d be lying if I said it didn’t still feel a little bit terrific how Alex Anthopoulos somehow managed to scoop up so many of the good bits of that club just as it was being blown to smithereens. I dunno…
So… there’s that.
