Would Andrew Mc Cutchen Be a Fit for Giants

The ball reportedly is in Giancarlo Stanton's court. MLB.com reported the Dodgers were the only team Stanton would be willing to accept a trade to, without further consideration.

ESPN's Buster Olney reported Stanton met personally with Giants executives on Friday.

Round and round we go.

Stanton holds a full no-trade clause and must waive it in order for the Marlins to complete a deal with any team. They can't take on a large portion of the $295 million remaining on Stanton's deal. Stanton grew up 15 miles from Dodger Stadium, and it's believed he'd prefer to play in his hometown for the National League champs. But the Dodgers have luxury-tax issues and have not seriously pursued Stanton - at least not yet. If the meetings had occurred while talks between the teams were still fluid, the Marlins would've risked losing leverage if Stanton agreed to be dealt to one team and not the other. Heyman cited a source who said the Giants would "100 percent" be Stanton's preferred choice if he had to pick between them and the Cardinals.

Three Super Moons to Be Observed between December and January
Rare sighting of the first and last supermoon of the year will be observed today all over the world including Pakistan. But for those who can't wake up that early, the moon will still look bigger - and brighter - throughout the night.

The hot stove season in Major League Baseball is heating up, and with the winter meetings a week away Giancarlo Stanton might soon be an ex-member of the Miami Marlins.

The Marlins also want to move Dee Gordon, who's owed $38 million through 2020, and the second baseman would be a nice fit for the Giants, who lack speed.

The Cardinals have pitching prospects the Marlins have targeted, such as right-handers Jack Flaherty and Sandy Alcantara.
