Spring Training is right around the corner, and just like it will be a hot topic during the season, the chatter has already begun about Giancarlo Stanton‘s future with the Marlins. He’s been long rumored to want out of Miami, with his hometown Los Angeles Dodgers always seeming like the favorites to land him.
This week we learned that Stanton has apparently changed his tune about being a Marlin longterm and could look to sign an extension if the Marlins continue to show they are headed in the right direction.
I still think it’s unlikely that Stanton agrees to an extension with the Marlins anytime soon, and I believe the Marlins could look to trade him, maybe as soon as this offseason.
I wanted to open up the polls for Marlins fans and get your feelings about what the Marlins chances of signing Stanton longterm are:
You are Giancarlo Stanton. You are enormous and powerful, and you pick your teeth with spinning 15-foot-long fiberglass marlins. People fear and respect you, and one day you will be extraordinarily wealthy.

Every year, a class of young and talented players emerge in MLB, giving their respective clubs newly-found hope in what the future will hold. While many men might shoot through the minor leagues as a prospect, only the cream of the crop who have designs on making it to the top actually will. Perhaps no one made a bigger impact on their club in 2013 than Miami Marlins rookie, Jose Fernandez.
Here at Marlin Maniac:
For Miami Marlins’ fans, 2013 was filled with many frustrating moments. The pitching staff routinely delivered stellar performances that the offense was simply unable to support. Finally, in the last game of the season, the pitching staff had been through enough. Henderson Alvarez took the hill and the rest was history.
