I know, I know, it's ridiculous. And reality is... we do not need him, but when it comes to the Yankees... there are 2 guys that I am ready to have shipped out.  They are Jacoby Ellsbury and Chase Headley.  Now that you know that, read this...

Jon Heyman everyone:

"The New York Yankees have been on the far fringes of the Giancarlo Stanton talk to this point, and one reason for that is the difficulty it would seem to be for them to fit Stanton and his $25 million salary under the $197 million luxury tax threshold for 2018...

The Yankees would have to include some combination of Jacoby Ellsbury, Chase Headley and maybe Brett Gardner to make their tax goal still work. And while it’s a long shot, technically it’s doable.

The Marlins are said to have started Stanton talks by asking any acquiring team to take his full contract and the $295 million to go over 10 years while also giving up good prospects. But sources say they are open to negotiating off that, depending on the total take, and the Yankees have a plethora of very good prospects that could entice Miami."

There are those names again. Plus, there's Brett Gardner.  Remember when the Yankees were thinking about trading him?

Now look, getting Stanton for those 3 old guys won't happen... but Heyman is right in some regard... if the Yankees can be creative, get rid of some prospects (be smart Brian) and still manage to throw Ellsbury and Headley in, we perhaps have something.

Will Stanton ever be in pinstripes? I honestly do not think so... but hell... it's fun to think about.

Stay tuned.
