The sweepstakes for Giancarlo Stanton seem to get some new rumor each day and today we have a new team to add to the list.
According to Craig Mish of SiriusXM, the World Champions Houston Astros engaged in discussions for Stanton at some point this off-season.
Mish also goes on to say that the teams were not able to work anything out and are no longer in the picture, at the moment.

It seems only the Cardinals and Giants are still heavily involved with the Marlins on Stanton, but the current "Home Run King" still hasn't decided where to go.
Since Stanton has a Full-No-Trade clause he can veto any move and that is why his future is pretty much in his hands.
Many believe Stanton will drag out the process of choosing a team in hopes of the Dodgers getting involved and ultimately ending up with his dream team.
But, according to several sources, the Dodgers do not want to add more money to their already extremely large payroll.
It was even reported that the Cardinals are a "long shot" as he "100 percent" prefers the Giants because they are on the West Coast.
On the other hand, he is not impressed with the San Francisco team either as a playoff team for years to come.
A possible trade for Giancarlo Stanton has become a complete soap opera this off-season with several teams fighting for his services. And things just got a little more interesting thanks to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports. According to Heyman, despite Stanton's representatives meeting with the Cardinals, the slugger has them as his "last choice" and he would pick the Giants "100 percent" before St.
Just imagine how the Astros line up would look if they would get Stanton in a trade.
Can someone say MLB's Warriors.
