Rumored Red Sox Deal With Miami Smells Fishy

Stanton To Fenway? Not Likely.
MLB.com's beat writer in "The Fun And Sun Capital of The World" (Joe Frisaro) is throwing out a "fishing line" to Boston fans about a potential blockbuster deal between Miami and the Carmine Hose. Are you ready? Boston would send "four or five" of its top prospects to the Marlins for 23-year old slugger Giancarlo "Don't Call Me Mike" Stanton. While snaring Stanton would be exciting, there is no way that Ben Cherington would ever part with a package of Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley, Jr. , Allen Webster and Henry Owens. Let's throw in the lease to Fenway Park while we're at it. Maybe we can even ship the Green Monster (the wall, not Wally) down to South Beach so the 'beautiful people' can play handball off it. With all due respect to Mr. Frisaro, he should get out of the heat—it's affecting his judgement.
