Miami Marlins stud outfielder Giancarlo Stanton summed up the feeling of the team’s fans in one tweet:
Alright, I’m pissed off!!! Plain & Simple

Who can blame him? The Marlins traded away their top players in a surprise deal. They have decimated their payroll, and are now firmly entrenched in rebuilding mode. This all comes less than a year after the team moved into a new stadium and showed signs of promise by adding many high-priced players in free agency. It didn’t take them long to blow up the plan after a failed first season.
Nationals Rookie of the Year Bryce Harper has an idea:
@giancarlo818 you can always come play for the Nats! We will take you anytime! Get some red, white, and blue in your life!

Unfortunately, Stanton is still under the Marlins’ control for at least three more seasons. He might have to demand a trade.
