07:51 AM ET 01.20 | On the one hand, reaching agreement on a one-year deal Friday cleared up what Giancarlo Stanton will make in 2014. But it didn't clear up the slugger's long-term future with the Marlins. For months, Miami had stated it was open to discussing a multi-year deal with the 24-year-old right fielder. Such conversations never took place between the club and Stanton's agent, Joel Wolfe of the Wasserman Media Group. The reason is both sides felt the timing wasn't right. ... Until there is a long-term resolution with Stanton, speculation will continue about how much longer he will be in a Miami uniform. Insiders and fans will maintain it isn't a matter of if Stanton will be traded, but when. Based on the club's track record of trading players, that scenario may indeed happen.

The Fish are going to have to do like the Mets did with Wright make Stanton the face of the franchise knowing they have no chance of winning during his whole career there.

There's only 3 reasons why a fan would buy a ticket to a Marlins game and he's one of them.

I don't know man, personally I wouldn't be surprised if he's gone by the end of the year.

I'd go with Stanton and Fernandez as 1A and 1B, in no particular order, and Christian Yelich would be number three.

I don't think that's part of the plan for the future. I don't think Stanton is part pf the future specifically, and I just have to hope you're wrong about the no chance of winning part.

I frequently use a debit card featuring a Marlins background and according to the majority of folks who swipe my card the Marlins are the Mariners, a pretty good team.
