About Mike Stanton, means nothing, I just like reading it.

excerpt from ESPN Insider rumore central....http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/features ... 1205#14880
Quote:
One outside-the-box idea is the Pittsburgh Pirates. They have young takent, including shortstop Alen Hanson and right-handers Jameson Taillon and Gerrit Cole. Both Cole and Taillon are generally considered among the top few pitching prospects in the game.

Since Stanton isn't making big money -- and won't for a few years -- the Bucs' payroll limitations aren't a concern in a move for Stanton.

The Pirates, however, are looking to compete in 2013 and 2014 and most of their assets are likely to be spent on adding starting pitching.

If I'm NH, I'd offer a HUGE package for Giancarlo Stanton. I mentioned it as soon as he tweeted his discontent. Taillon/Marte/Hanson and more? Sure. The guy will be a HR king and give the Pirates maybe the best 3-4 hitters in baseball for the foreseeable future.

^ Uh huh. It would be nicer if he were lefty but I'd give them almost whomever they wanted for Stanton. Most prospects don't turn out to be as good as Stanton, no matter where they are rated. And if someone does, oh well - Stanton is still awesome.

It would take more than that though.

Probably Taillon or Cole/Marte/Hanson/Bell/Tabata and/or Snider
