Stanton price rises.

What happened to cause his price to rise?

I just spent sixty days in the jailhouse. For the crime of having no dough, no no. Now here I am back out on the street. For the crime of having nowhere to go. Save your neck or save your brother. Looks like it's one or the other

I can't imagine finishing a writers's vote and his first or second or third is going to have any impact on all on what he fetches.

"Well, we've scouted him and watched the tape and know exactly what he can do for us. Here's what we'll offer the Marlins for Stant....wait what? Some writers just voted him MVP? Uh oh we better offer more."

You think this is how teams operate? Stanton is the exact same guy with or without the MVP.

Yank nailed it.

Stanton's worth is what it is.

But I could see Stanton getting the MVP making it harder for Jeter to trade him.

Trading the face of the franchise and league MVP?

That could get tricky.

Sure. And if that's what Utley meant then I agree with him.

If that's the direction he was going, he approached it by going 180' in the opposite direction.

As you understood the price should not rise. Stanton's value to the buyer should not materially change due to the MVP award.

Its like the Wizard of Oz handing out a diploma to the scarecrow.

Shit I was an 8 year old kid and i knew the scarecrow was the brains of the operaton.

I guess the troll needed to see a diploma.

heh

I think it means Jeter keeps his too high price too high. Since neither of you can prove me wrong nor yourself right, your supercilious snark is unnecessary and reflects the kind of insecurity typically reserved for only those afflicted with the smallest of dicks.

troll your obssession with small dicks is probably reflective of the life-long shame you feel every time you unzip to pee.

Oh, and troll, it was you who made the statement about Stanton's rising price and it was you who was unable to fashion a defense when yank challenged you on it.

And as is your habit, you peed all over yourself.
