Assuming the suggestion is an even-up trade (including contracts) the Marlins would do it to unload that albatross of a contract.  The Nats would be crazy to take that on.

The Marlins want to get rid of the Stanton contract, yes.  But Stanton for Harper still makes no sense for them.  The Marlins still would be paying Harper big bucks this year in his final year of arbirtration and they get no long-term assets.  The only way it would make sense is if they turned around and traded Harper for prospects.
