Wait, you can't have Betances in bullpen because you put him in a trade for Stanton, which is too much. Your trade, as usual don't make sense. The Mariners don't need another outfielder, and the Brewers don't need a 3rd basemen. Otani can't get that, they have to offer him how much international money they have and it would be minor league contract.

I forgot I included Betances in the trade so substitute Mitchell in for Betances in the bullpen.

BATMAN!, you actually think that’s too much for Stanton coming off of a 59 home run season? Especially since I have them taking back Ellsbury’s contract. They’re going to want a premium in return. Also, the Mariners could absolutely use another outfielder. Particularly one that plays great defense and can play center field. They got almost no production out of center field this year. Plus Gardner only has one year left on his deal so it’s not a long term commitment and he can help them take one last shot at the postseason while they still have Cano and Cruz together. He also brings great leadership. As for Headley, the he can be used to spot Thames and Shaw at third and first who both hit left handed as well as be a nice pinch hitter in a walk year.

Headley making 13 million isn't going to sit on the bench and be a back up, he actually did pretty decently in the second half, he could start for a team that NEEDS a 3rd baseman. Gardner technically has 2 years left, yes the second year is an option, but I would think it would get picked up.

Fair enough. What would you say is a fair return for Stanton?

And with a "wink wink" deal, the Yankees get punished. Lose IFA signing privileges for about a decade, lose multiple draft picks, and front office guys get fired.

The MLB isn't going to allow any sort of circumvention happen with Otani, nor will the other 29 teams. And if it's attempted, that team will face some of the steepest penalties baseball will ever dole out.

Also, what need do the Brewers have for Headley? They have 3-4 3B options already.

Can someone please tell me what they think fair value is for Stanton?

Probably 1 top 100 prospect, and MLB player, maybe even a bad contract.

I don't think that's "fair value", but it's what will likely win a bidding war for Stanton. That contract is going to be tough to justify for any team.
