The dream is dead, Red Sox fans – at least for now. The Marlins re-signed Giancarlo Stanton to a 13-year, $325 million contract. Though he can opt out of the deal in 2020, it seems as if he’s off the table for now. With Stanton out of the picture, Yoenis Cespedes becomes more valuable to the Red Sox than ever before. The team needs a power right-handed bat in its outfield, and Cespedes is the best option that they have at this time. The hot stove season is off to a quick start, as a plethora of moves have been already. Alex breaks down the Stanton signing, and says there’s no he would’ve been able to turn down that kind of money. But still, the jury is out on whether Jeffrey Loria is committed to building a winning team around him. Jason Heyward’s future with the Cardinals, the Tigers’ reasoning behind the inflated Victor Martinez extension and more is discussed in the “Around the League” segment as well.
