Marlins Way: Will The Injury To Giancarlo Stanton Slow The Trade Rumors?


The Giancarlo Stanton lottery seems to be heating up as of late with trade rumors coming in nearly on a daily basis as this point.  For those Marlins fans still holding out hope that the team will keep Stanton and build around him, Peter Gammons offered up an encouraging nugget on twitter saying that team is “not interested” in trading.

With the team getting off to a dismal 2-10 start, the play on the field has done nothing to decrease the trade rumor frenzy as the media searches for anything interesting regarding the Marlins to report on.  Maybe the shoulder injury which sidelined Stanton for the entire three game series this weekend will slow things down on the trade market.
