If the meetings had occurred while talks between the teams were still fluid, the Marlins would've risked losing leverage if Stanton agreed to be dealt to one team and not the other. He is rumored to prefer a deal to his hometown Dodgers, although Los Angeles is also under payroll constraints and may not match up in a potential trade.

A Major League Baseball source said that for the Giants and Cardinals to have had their window to talk to Stanton's representatives, significant movement on an agreement with the Marlins already had to be in place.

Although the 2017 NL MVP says he wants to be in LA, national reports have only rumored that Miami has acceptable deals with the Giants and Cardinals.

Stanton's pool of suitors is thought to be as wide as five or six teams, but the Giants, Cardinals and Dodgers have emerged as the clear frontrunners so far. So let's explore the possibility of Stanton ending up in New York, playing for the New York Yankees.

The Dodgers already have contract issues, and if they acquired Stanton and took on most of his salary, they would be seriously over the luxury tax ceiling of $197 million. The Marlins finished the year with a 77-85 record.

Morosi reported Thursday the Marlins were prepared to accept Giants second baseman Joe Panik and top prospects Tyler Beede and Chris Shaw in return for Stanton as long as San Francisco was willing to assume at least $250 million of the remaining $295 million on Stanton's contract. But people around the Marlins describe that as a last resort that "absolutely" will not happen since that's a worst-case scenario for the team, more so than Stanton, who very much likes Miami even if he craves not to do yet another rebuild in South Florida. That was when San Francisco reportedly became Stanton's "100 percent" preferred choice if it came down to choosing between the Giants and the Cardinals.
