REPORT: Stanton 'Advisers' Pushing Trade To Red Sox

He's baaaack! WJAR-TV (Providence, Rhode Island) sports guy Joe Kayata has a new twist on the Giancarlo Stanton Sweepstakes. He reports that while Stanton would prefer a move to the LA Dodgers, his "advisers" are pushing him to accept a deal to Boston. Why? Supposedly, the juicy marketing lure of 19 Stanton VS. Judge match-ups per year are too much to pass up. Honestly, we're skeptical about whether this report has any foundation. But it is fun to speculate that—behind the scenes—Stanton might be being urged to ignore his aversion to cold weather and head to Fenway.
