Since their inception in 1993, the Miami Marlins have seen their fair share of rising stars bolt to other teams. A prime example is Miguel Cabrera, who at age 20 helped lead the Marlins to the 2003 World Championship. Five years later, he was in a Tigers uniform and went on to win the Triple Crown in 2012. The Marlins thought they couldn\'t find talent like that even with the help of a Skout app...

Miami wants to avoid the same thing happening to their all-star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. Reports have surfaced that Stanton\'s agent and the Marlins are in talks on a new contract for the slugger that could be in the area of $250 and $300 million. The length of the contract could be at least ten years, which would keep Stanton in South Florida until he\'s 34. His current contract runs through the 2016 season.

2014 was Stanton\'s best in the majors. He led the National League in home runs with 37, slugging percentage at .555 and total bases with 299. He also batted .288 and established career highs in RBIs (105), doubles (31), runs scored (89), stolen bases (13) and walks (94). Stanton was also named to his second All-Star Team and was the runner-up in the MVP race to the Dodgers Clayton Kershaw.
