The Giants really wanted to land Giancarlo Stanton and even met with his representatives in Los Angeles to see if they could work something out. It would have been a coup for them to get the 2017 NL MVP not only because he hits the ball really, really hard, but to keep him from possibly joining the Dodgers, his preferred landing spot. The Marlins and Giants even had a deal in place, but Stanton was holding out to play on one of four predetermined teams. Sadly for Giants fans, ix-nay on the Anfrancisco-say.
