KC really can't match that. I don't think ANYONE in MLB can really match what the Rangers can if TExas decides it wants Stanton.

The only team that REALLY could match it is the Cardinals. Adams + Wacha + Martinez + Wong + Freese would probably get it done.

Of course, the Cardinals have a logjam in the OF as is, and at 1B. So it doesn't make as much sense for them as for Texas.

But Taveras and Stanton would be a terrifying combination for the next decade.
If the Cardinals didn't have Taveras in their system, the Marlins might be willing to make your offer. But with Taveras there, I just can't see the Fish dealing Stanton without insisting he comes back in the deal.

And Jesus, I'd mike your proposed trade 100 times out of 100. I'd hang up and silently weep to myself. Putting Taveras/Stanton at 3-4 in the middle of the order with Carpenter at the top and Craig/Molina/Holliday batting 5-6-7...{JIMP}. Really, you'd probably put Taveras at 2 with Holliday at 3 and Stanton at 4 for the near term, but long-term I don't think it stacks that way as Holliday's bat slows.

St. Louis would likely need Garcia to come up and play 2b at that point with Carpenter moving back to 3b. I could live with that for sure; those are 2 very nice OBP guys ahead of the most terrifying.

Yeah, the Royals biggest problem is timing. Their prospects are just a little too young to battle with the farm systems in Texas and St. Louis, as well as several others. KC needs to hope that Miami holds him for another 2 years and deals him before his walk year. At that point, the kids in the system will have probably established trade value.
