Pirates tried to trade for Giancarlo Stanton

USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates made a meaningful offer for Giancarlo Stanton, Rob Biertempfel reports.

The Pirates made repeated attempts to work a deal for Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton and made a significant offer that caught the attention of the Marlins' front office. However, Miami's owner did not want to shed the team's lone star.

It's hard to give the Pirates much credit for trying to make a trade, obviously, but this is certainly worth mentioning. The Pirates were one of the few teams that would have had the prospects necessary to acquire Stanton, if the Marlins had been interested in dealing him.
