Stanton to the Yankees

Is it official? 

This is all I've seen

I don't think so, but no need for the doom and gloom. I think Stanton is worth about what he is being paid and the Yankees are going to give up value to acquire him.  Sure it makes their line-up scary but I'm not sure it's a win for them long term.

Hey maybe it'll be enough to push the Orioles to sell short term assets, which is the smart move anyway.

Sadly, Stanton's no-trade clause gives him so much power that someone (be it the Yankees or Dodgers or someone else) are going to get him for far less than he's worth, asset wise.

Even under new ownership, the Marlins remain an absolute disaster for Major League Baseball.

Will they be able to acquire him and get under the luxury tax threshold?

Not without offloading salary I believe.

The Yankees are talking about including Castro and/or Headley in the trade.  Ellsbury is unlikely due to his no trade clause.

Won't they still have money for Manny or Harper? And now they don't need a right fielder, just a third baseman 

True, but I'd think they might prefer Harper only because he is a left handed bat. But not sure if he could play CF.
