A Peter Gammons report added that Stanton isn't fascinated by the idea of going to Boston, St. Louis, or San Francisco, for varying reasons.

Another barrier in trading for Stanton is apparently the "shockingly high" prospect asking price from the Marlins, along with the 10 years and $295 million left on his contract.

Stanton is coming off of a MVP-type season, in which he hit .281/.376/.631 with 59 home runs and 132 RBIs. Meanwhile, the Marlins are reportedly looking to lower their payroll before next season.
