Put yourself in Stanton's shoes right now... a sinking feeling of desperation and depression.  Loria needs to make him happy to be with the Marlins. A requisite first step in that process is resignation: Stanton  needs to be convinced that he is stuck there -  no way out.  Any encouragement that there is a way out runs counter to that process.  A Nats player saying "We'll take you on our team" just encourages him to want to get out. 

I doubt he needs harper reminding him how bad his franchise is
