Under the current tax law, If Giancarlo Stanton is traded to the #SFGiants and becomes a California resident, it will cost him $19.9 million in additional income taxes, per @SportsTaxMan
To clarify, I am told the #STLCards meeting is with Giancarlo Stanton’s representatives — not necessarily Stanton himself.

To conclude his first partial season as a reliever, Arturo Reyes was invited by the St. Louis Cardinals to pitch in the Arizona Fall League. The right-hander discusses his journey.
Update from Morosi:
Sources: Evan Longoria’s name not seriously involved — yet — in ongoing #STLCards/#Rays talks centered on Alex Colome. But Cardinals could look to add bat at 3B if they fail to land Giancarlo Stanton. Stay tuned.
From the Cardinals:
2018 TICKET PACKS AND ALL-INCLUSIVE TICKETS ARE ON SALE TODAY, DECEMBER 1 AT 10 A.M. CT.
(Good guesses on Florida teams.)
I am especially proud of today’s analysis, anchored by Derek Shore. The no. 32-ranked prospect in The Cardinal Nation’s top 50 countdown is a center fielder who performed strongly in the 2017 Appalachian League at the age of 19, Wadye Ynfante. ($)
Shohei Ohtani development: Multiple @MLB team execs believe Ohtani may actually prefer to sign with a club that doesn’t already have a Japanese star; Ohtani’s camp has not commented on that.
ICYMI, the Cards announced their promotional schedule for the upcoming season.
The Cards’ 2005 first rounder is still pitching at age 31.
RE-SIGNED Team Israel’s Tyler Herron, who was 9-3 with a 2.91 ERA in 2017, will stay with the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks
From Peter Gammons:
As of late Thursday, Marlins pro scouting dept. only asked for reports on 2 organizations’ prospects:Giants, Cardinals. period
Ken Rosenthal asked me to not close this thread! 😉
Meeting between #SFGiants and Stanton’s reps does NOT necessarily indicate deal is close, not when Stanton has full veto power. SF execs simply might want to feel out situation, as @Buster_ESPN said. SFG also might pivot if it senses Stanton will say no, as @hankschulman said.
For those who did not see it, here is the Morosi tweet:
Giancarlo Stanton trade development: Source says #Marlins likely would accept offer of Panik, Beede and Shaw for Stanton alone — if #SFGiants committed to paying at least $250 million of the $295 million left on Stanton’s contract.
The Cardinal Nation’s top 50 prospect countdown reaches #33 with a right-handed pitcher who dominated at Class-A Peoria in his first full-season before finding the going tougher at high-A Palm Beach, Mike O’Reilly.

I don’t know Ciuffo, but I like the thought of doing something different with a younger player vs. another Brayan Pena type who is at the end of the line. Even if Kelly stays, the catching ranks at the top of the system are not overloaded and injury help is usually needed eventually.
Matt Holliday says he would call Giancarlo Stanton to sell him on St. Louis if needed. (2 minute clip)
#34 on The Cardinal Nation’s top 50 prospect countdown is a college center fielder who became an all-star in his rookie professional campaign in the Appalachian League, Chase Pinder. ($)
Two former Oakland farmhands joined the St. Louis Cardinals as free agents during the season, and now, a pair of Cards free agents have signed with the A’s.
Yes, both sides have leverage in what is a very complex situation. That is why I was not surprised when some estimated a trade would not get done quickly. There is a lot at stake for both parties.
Former GM Steve Phillips makes an interesting observation.
That’s a bluff that is worth calling if you are Stanton. The #Marlins need to move him more than he needs to be moved. Miami can trade everyone else around him but in the end they will move him where he wants to go too. #power
Well, I hope I am not fanning the flames. I always try to look with a skeptical eye.
Too bad Don Zimmer could not be Beltran’s bench coach.
OK, I summarized tonight’s news on the Stanton trade rumors in an article. Please read it now, before it is out of date! (free)
I cannot copy the full exchange here, but I have had a back and forth Stanton discussion on Twitter with my friend Craig Mish of SiriusXM.
Here is one nugget from Craig.
I asked a source yesterday if anything had changed w him accepting a deal to STL. Source said yes. I waited to confirm. Now I am not even sure if the yes was a “forced” yes or a real yes. So crazy.
Here are our Twitter feeds:
A big question has no clear answer, per research by Eno Sarris.
David Ortiz, Jim Edmonds, Jorge Posada, Chipper Jones all played a similar amount of games per season before 28, and aged well. It’s hard to know how Giancarlo Stanton will age.
New article from the Miami Herald beat writer:
“Marlins warn Stanton: Accept a trade or you’ll be only star on stripped-down team”
