REPORT: Stanton 'Completely Open-Minded' On Trade

Welcome to the BizarroWorld of Giancarlo Stanton rumors. As you know, we've committed to vetting rumors so that only multiple sources make it through our "sieve". So, here goes: NBCSportsBoston (which we think used to be ComcastSportsNet NewEngland, but we're not really sure) cites "a person with knowledge of the slugger's thinking" that Stanton is "completely open-minded" about his possible landing spots—including Boston. So, that's two sources this morning with more positive assessments about Stanton donning Carmine Hose. Once again, however, take all of these reports (even the ones that we convey) with a HUGE grain of Morton's and/or Diamond Crystal salt.
