Let's say the Cubs know the Marlins want three elite level prospects for Stanton. The Cubs can't offer one elite prospect and seven good prospects and expect Miami to take the deal. Similarly, if a team wants a good pitching prospect, the Cubs can't expect to send them five mediocre pitching prospects instead. Quantity is a good thing to have, but throwing a huge list of prospects in a deal does not make the deal any more likely to happen.
Also, Soler and Almora can't be dealt until mid-summer (although they can PTBNL'd).
