Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton will be traded during the offseason, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported earlier this week.
With that in mind, the Daily News Live panel debated whether the Mets should trade Yoenis Cespedes for Stanton.
The Giants have expressed interest in the 27-year-old Stanton, as have the Rangers and Phillies, notes Nightengale, who says no teams have yet offered to take on the entire remainder of Stanton's contract.
Stanton is in the third year of a 13-year, $325 million contract, which contains a no-trade clause and an opt-out after 2020. The deal also includes a $25 million team option for 2028.
The 27-year-old Stanton is hitting .289 with a .381 OBP, while leading the league in home runs (51) and slugging percentage (.658). He is on pace to finish the season with 62 home runs.
The 31-year-old Cespedes, who will miss the remainder of the season due to a hamstring injury, hit .292/.352/.540 with 17 HR in 81 games this season.
He will make $29 million in both 2018 and 2019, and $29.5 million in 2020, after which he is eligible for free agency.
