Welcome to the sixth episode of the Call to the Pen flagship podcast! New episodes Monday and Wednesday. Today we discuss the possibility of a Giancarlo Stanton trade, given he recently cleared waivers, as well as possible hurdles to such a deal given the recent sale of the Marlins to a group lead by Derek Jeter.


In today’s episode, host and Call to the Pen contributor Jonathan Platek discusses the ins and outs of a trade of Giancarlo Stanton by the Miami Marlins to any contending team. Jon breaks down possible suitors for Stanton, as well as possible packages that could be put together for the slugger.

Jon also discusses the concept of a True Home Run King, and decides whether Stantong would be a “true” King should he break the single-season total of Yankees great Roger Maris.
