Giancarlo Stanton, whose longing for championship contention and mass-market stardom went largely unrequited in Miami, is about to don one of the most famous sports uniforms in the world. With Aaron Judge, Stanton could join Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle as the only Major League teammates to each hit 50 or more home runs in the same season.
And so the industry waits -- some teams with greater urgency than others. Here's a look at the players who will be impacted the most if -- or when -- Stanton is traded this offseason. J.D. Martinez Martinez, 30, is the free agent who most closely resembles Stanton's profile and productivity. Over the past four seasons, Martinez ranks third in the Majors -- behind only Mike Trout and Stanton -- in OPS+ among full-time outfielders.
Representatives for the reigning National League MVP met with the Giants and Cardinals late in the week, as each team attempted to convince Stanton to waive his no-trade clause and pave the way for a blockbuster deal. The context behind those meetings became clearer on Sunday: Multiple sources said the Marlins have agreed upon the general framework of a Stanton trade with both San Francisco and St. Louis.
Evan Longoria is certain to be mentioned as a trade candidate in the coming week. When that happens, remember this: He leads @MLB with 798 games played over the last 5 seasons. He hasn’t spent a day on the DL during that span. @MLBNetwork
On Giancarlo Stanton: Per trade terms, #Marlins won’t send #Yankees any cash during the next three seasons, as payments are conditional on him *not* opting out after 2020. @Joelsherman1 was first to report this. @MLB@MLBNetwork
#Yankees will receive luxury tax credit of $3 million per year in Stanton trade; $30 million cash payment from #Marlins is averaged over the 10 years — regardless of when payouts come, and even though opt-out exists. @MLB@MLBNetwork
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
