Since the Marlins just blew up their team, I'd put the chances of them keeping Stanton at 50-50. Sure he's the only draw, but considering how bad the team will be I doubt they'll draw much anyway. By the time they're good again Stanton will be on his way out...might as well deal him now and add more talent. It's been speculated that the Marlins would want 4-5 top prospects in return.
The Mets could swap the prospects from the assumed Wright trade plus 1-2 of their own (like Mejia or Flores) to Miami for Stanton. The lineup swaps Wright out for Stanton, adding a younger (23), cheaper, controlled, and arguably superior player
A core of Stanton, Davis, Tejada, Nieuwenhuis, Harvey, Niese, and Wheeler would be relatively dirt cheap and could be kept together for a long time. Given the amount of money saved (as well as the prospects held onto) the organization should have an easier time adding talent in order to field a championship-level club.
Even in a worst-case scenario, if Stanton doesn't work out he'll still be a tradable and valuable commodity going forward.
I would do it for the shear shot in the drak for a potent offense to match a killer rotation.
Mets: David Wrigh, RA Dickey to team A
Marlins: Stanton to Toronto
Toronto - 3 prospects to Miami
Mets lineup - SS Tejada, 2B Murphy, 1B Davis, OF Stanton, 3B Cox, RF Duda, CF Nieuwenhuis/den , Dekker, , C d'Armaund...
Rotattion... Santana, Harvey, Wheeler, Niese, Gee
