06:18 AM ET 12.23 | Several teams have made offers for Giancarlo Stanton but none good enough for the Marlins front office to recommend to owner Jeffrey Loria. At least one Marlins baseball person believes the team should consider a deal, but he's not making the decisions.

No. Propects are prospects and this kid is very young and a proven monster with the bat.

The only problem in keeping Stanton is he might lead the NL in walks next season because teams will pitch around him.

Theyre desparate for ONE last hook to get people there.

This kid has already shown himself to be everything the Nationals expect Bryce Harper to be. He just turned 23 and he has 93 ML homeruns playing in a power robbing stadium. I don't know what the ceiling is on this kid, but it's extremely high.

So yes, it will take 4 to 5 top MLB ready prospects and even then he'll be a bargain. Anyone remember all those prospects Detroit traded for Cabrera? I do - barely.

But the Marlins need a new owner badly.

That's where any kind of a rejuvenation in that market needs to start.

How do you trade your best young player??? I can imagine most teams building a franchise around this kid...

As a devout Marlins fan, if Loria trades Stanton, that team will not draw flies as long as he is the owner. Sadly, he'll still make a fortune every year whether he fields little league or handicapped players due to local TV, National TV and luxury tax treasures he'll reap. He's the Donald Sterling (Clippers) of MLB. He should be shamed out of baseball and Miami for how he has treated his players, baseball, his team and his city. Unreal what he done, all legally, during his tenure here.
