I got your attention didn't I!? Okay, so this is really the only place that I know of that has a decent base of posters as a forum for San Diego baseball, and I came across an interesting article today.

In this article Jeff Passan says that the Marlins should definitely trade Stanton. I agree with him, it makes perfect sense for the Marlins to move him and get a huge return back and I'm sure that after the blockbuster deal they just pulled with the Blue Jays they're willing to move him, no matter what they say publicly. Point is - I want to see him in a Padres uniform. Given, so does every other fan of every other team in baseball, but most teams don't have the talent pool the Padres do in the minors.
The article explains what would be needed to land Stanton. "... the sort of package necessary to acquire Stanton: three top-of-the-line, major league or major league-ready players with next to no service time, plus another two or three prospects." Assuming that this is true, who would you give up for Stanton, if you would at all? Personally, I would put up Rhymer Liriano, Casey Kelly, Robbie Erlin (3 top of the line prospects, 1 year away) Cory Spangenberg, Joe Wieland, and two of our B or below prospects.
I'd fight tooth and nail to keep Gyorko, but Forscythe could be on the table if they wanted him. Although, actually doing this I'm not sure if the Padres farm system is top heavy enough to make this trade work. They have the talent, but it's dispersed over so many players, that they might not have enough top of the line talent to beat out the Rangers or Mariners in a bidding war. They could just keep throwing prospects until we could get him, but I wouldn't want to see too many go, the package I proposed would already hit the farm system quite hard.
