From Jon Heyman/CBSSports:
Beinfest wouldn't address whether Stanton might be traded, but other people with Marlins connections say he absolutely will be a Marlin in 2013. And executives from other teams who have inquired agree they see zero evidence Stanton might be moved.I'm sure you're all as skeptical as we are, but frankly it would be hard to offer the Marlins a package worth trading Stanton, an amazing hitter who is under club control for the next four years.
But that doesn't mean the Marlins won't try to deal him in 2014, or 2015, or even during the 2016 season (his last before he becomes a free agent). As was the case with Miguel Cabrera six years ago, the question with Stanton is when - not if - the Marlins will deal him.
