The Boston Red Sox could add more firepower to their already potent batting lineup by hammering out a trade with the Miami Marlins for slugger Giancarlo Stanton.

Stanton, who never reached the postseason in his first four seasons with the Marlins, could find himself playing for a proven title contender next season, if everything falls in place with regards to a possible deal between Boston and Miami.

According to Boston Globe baseball analyst Nick Cafardo, Stanton is drawing interest from multiple teams, but the Red Sox may prove to be the most ideal landing spot for the hard-hitting batter due to the franchise's ability to pay him with a lucrative deal.

"Numerous teams would be in the hunt for Stanton, including the Cubs, Tigers, Angels, Dodgers, Phillies, Yankees, Mets, Giants, Twins, and Mariners. You'd have to give up top young players, and then sign Stanton to a huge long-term deal," Cafardo reported.

Moreover, Cafardo added that it would be a win-win situation for both ball clubs. The Red Sox have been searching for a power hitter of Stanton's caliber, while the Marlins are trying to acquire MLB-ready prospects.

"But in reality, the team that matches up best with Miami is Boston. The Red Sox have the young players Miami wants and they have the financial resources to sign him," the analyst added.

Stanton, who batted .249 with 24 homers and 62 RBIs last season, said that he has remained focused on helping the Marlins despite dealing with trade rumors for the past several months. He stressed that money won't be a big issue for him, as he wants to stay and win with the Marlins.

"My GM will let me know what's legitimate," Stanton said to The Boston Globe. "There's rumors at every step - from high school to college to the pros, you learn what to filter out. Of course, some of those rumors do happen, but you can't listen to everything,"

"It's not about the money for me. I want to win. I want to move toward winning. I'd love to stay if we can accomplish that," he added.
