Yankees Acquire Giancarlo Stanton

The New York Yankees were a dangerous team. Now, with the recent acquisition of 2017 NL MVP RF Giancarlo Stanton, they are outright scary.

It is assumed that roughly $260 million of Stanton’s $290 million contract through 2027 will be assumed by the Yankees.

According to the New York Post, the Marlins will receive Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro, pitching prospect Jorge Guzman and infield prospect Jose Devers in exchange for Stanton.

The Yankees were one of four teams that Stanton was considering to being traded to, the other three being the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros.

Stanton, who just turned 28, totaled 59 home runs last season which was the most since by any player since the 2011 season.

While Stanton could have been successful going to other teams, the Yankees may be the best fit for him. They are one of the youngest teams in the league and just hired a new head coach in Aaron Boone. It has been awhile since the buzz surrounding Yankee’s baseball has been as exciting as it currently is.

Not to mention that the Stanton will be batting right in front of or behind of Aaron Judge, who finished in second place for AL MVP this past season. Moreover, they are both explosive players. Thus, if a team wants to pitch around one of them they only have the face the other one in the next at bat.

This one-two punch is unparalleled to any other in Major League Baseball and the Yankees have every right to be very excited.
