Stanton to the Sox?

Giancarlo Stanton isn't going anywhere before this year's trade deadline, but come the offseason, expect the Boston Red Sox to be in the mix if he is made available

We've all thought of him. But how realistic is it? A little more realistic than you think.

As I said on WEEI 93.7 FM over the weekend, and again on Monday's podcast: Red Sox sources tell me they believe they're one of only a few teams in Major League Baseball that have the prospects to make a Stanton trade happen, if he is made available this winter.

That doesn't seem like earth-shattering news to anybody who is familiar with Boston's farm system. But, it's now clear that Stanton is being considered -- within the Red Sox organization -- as a realistic acquisition this offseason, if the Marlins would actually be willing to move him. So much so, that the Sox believe they'd be one of the favorites to land Stanton.

I went into some more detail on Monday's podcast.

Also, ESPN-Boston's Joe McDonald joined me to discuss the Red Sox' playoff hopes after winning seven-of-eight and sweeping the Kansas City Royals. We also tried to predict Ben Cherington's mindset entering the July 31 trade deadline.
