2017-10-17 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is it me, or does it feel like a foregone conclusion that the Giants will find a way to trade for Giancarlo Stanton? Any idea what package would get it done, maybe something like Chris Shaw, Tyler Beede, Heliot Ramos, Austin Slater, and Steven Okert?
(matzabal from CO)
Haha, I'm not so sure it's foregone, but they're an easy spot to visualize him landing. I think a lot of previously rebuilding teams are probably in the running for him, since slotting him in the OF is a good way to suddenly create a good offense. Odds on, I'd say the Giants make a strong, if not the strongest run.

I don't think it's going to be a bunch of prospects for him kind of deal though. My guess is that some team is going to have to take on salary and give up probably their top prospect, especially since Jeter is going to want his GM to make an initial statement. I think I'd need Arroyo in there as well as Beede and Shaw. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-08-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Chris Shaw? Can he play the outfield? Will he be the power bat the Giants so desperately need?
(Buff from CO)
Shaw has been an interesting name for awhile. He's striking out a little too much for my liking at Triple-A, but he's also slugging over .525, so I guess you just deal with it. If Schwarber can play the outfield, I don't see why Shaw couldn't. (Mark Barry)
2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)You buying the good start to the season by Chris Shaw?
(Ryan from Montreal)
He's 23 and going back to Double-A after 60 games there so...sure I'll buy it in that I believe he can beat up Double-A. Do I think the increase in walk rate and decrease in strikeout rate holds up? No. But he's a Giants hitting prospect so I'll inevitably be wrong. (Craig Goldstein)
