The internet, as it tends to do, went wild with the news of the Giancarlo Stanton trade.

The Yankees and Marlins have reportedly agreed to terms on a trade that would send reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton to New York, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports. And the internet, as it tends to do, went wild. 

Stanton has a full no-trade clause in the 13-year, $325 million contract he signed back in 2014, but the Yankees are reportedly on the list of teams he'd waive it for.

The 28-year-old hit .281 last year with 59 homers and 132 RBIs in a career-best 159 games. He is owed $295 million over the next 10 years with an opt-out clause in 2021.

With Stanton as the biggest name in the offseason next to Shohei Otani, naturally the news was huge. And since Otani didn't choose the Yankees, of course, New York fans are feeling a lot better this morning. Throw in some Derek Jeter secretly working to bring more championships to the Yankees, and it's all pure internet gold.
