Giants expect Giancarlo Stanton decision 'by the end of the week'

Giants expect Giancarlo Stanton decision 'by the end of the week'

Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area tweeted on Wednesday that the Giants are expecting an answer from Giancarlo Stanton by the end of the week.

You know this, of course, and it's why teams in pursuit of Stanton must not only strike a deal with the Marlins but also persuade Stanton to approve said deal.

Giants executives met with Stanton last week, with Evans describing it as a "good meeting". "But our terms with the Marlins are clear".

The Giants remain Stanton's second choice behind the Los Angeles Dodgers, but may win the sweepstakes by default as the Dodgers have reportedly not made an offer for the NL MVP, and are supposedly looking to continue to cut payroll rather than add to their luxury tax bill. However, for a team with a below-market TV contract, no ballpark naming-rights deal, and major troubles selling tickets, the best path to cutting costs is first and foremost trading Stanton. The upshot is that taking on a contract like Stanton's would make it hard for them to get under the threshold.

He also voiced his hope that "peace and prosperity" would prevail for the Palestinian people. The Vatican and Israel established full diplomatic relations in 1994.

"He has a contract already in front of him", Evans said. He's obviously passionate about winning, he's passionate about the game and really presented himself extremely well.

"I have never been to the winter meetings", Jeter said, "and quite frankly I don't think I'm going to the winter meetings this time either". However, if Craig Mish's report is true, then the Giants are taking on nearly all of Stanton's contract and sending over their top four prospects.

He called the pitcher and left-handed hitter an "impressive young man" who will be a two-way player.

"He's taking this in a very thoughtful way, this process", Evans said. San Francisco has won a lot in the decade.
