08:53 AM ET 01.05 | An MLB source who has spent time with Giancarlo Stanton this offseason said he seems increasingly smitten with the Dodgers and the Hollywood lifestyle and part-time owner Magic Johnson and has buddied up with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp. The Dodgers are the front-runner to land him when he becomes a free agent after 2016.

Come To LA, Bro.

In 2017 he is FA. That's nice. Now how about a story or two about unsigned FA's now?

Way before then Giancarlo will be traded and some team will tie him up long term to avoid him becoming a free agent in 17.

Not to mention that Kemp is unlikely to be there by then.

Or Mattingly or a lot of guys if they do not win big in the next three years. Heck, LA might not be there or the whole left coast may become an island from the Big Fault Line....

He'll be launching wicked long homahs over the Green Monstah real soon.............

Lots can happen in three more seasons; a bit premature to forecast where any player will be in the 2017 season.

He did have a down year average wise, although he did have 24 HRs. I'll wait and see what he does in the next 3 years, another player could pop up as a better choice.

Wake me when he's a FA in 2017.

Puig will be the goner!!!

Something tells me the domestic violence arrests are forthcoming soon.

This is a joke, right?

by that time Giancarlo Stanton will become a injury-prone,just wait watch and see..

Trade him Straight up for Puig. My guess is LA if they aren't already will get fed up with his reckless behavior and lack of motivation very quickly. He would be great for the Marlins fan base with the big Cuban population too
