Oh, Giancarlo Stanton is nude too

Jul 9, 2013, 1:36 PM EST

I thought Matt Harvey was the only ballplayer posing nude for that ESPN Body Issue, but Old Gator pointed out to me that Giancarlo Stanton is as well. He’s kinda got an Aquaman thing going here:

In other news, we need more day games.

If you’re curious how he maintains that bod of his, go read his interview here. It’s surprisingly simple. Except he leaves out the genetics part.

    The judge rose up smiling and gathered him against his immense and terrible flesh….

      Those who know, know. And they are now terrified.

      • Old Gator - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:38 PM

        Uncle Moses will be along any minute now. Watch what happens.

    • unclemosesgreen - Jul 9, 2013 at 4:30 PM

      Good God almighty …

      • Old Gator - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:24 PM

        He says that he will never die.

      • unclemosesgreen - Jul 10, 2013 at 8:54 AM

        I believe him.

    • bigharold - Jul 9, 2013 at 8:32 PM

      I can’t wait for the Yankees to trade A-Rod and 100 million dollars for this guy!

    I can’t believe I am saying this – but can we get back to posts about PED’s?

    • pjmitch - Jul 9, 2013 at 1:47 PM

      How about posts about ANYTHING else……

    • historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:01 PM

      Booo!!!!

        Oh, my.

    • Francisco (FC) - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:27 PM

      Now, now, don’t be sexist. I’m sure most of our female readers appreciate these posts once in a while. And a few male readers as well.

      • DelawarePhilliesFan - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:36 PM

        Your missing the point – and as always, Seinfeld has the answers:

        Jerry: But the thing you don’t realize is that there’s good naked and bad naked.

        Elaine: The female body is a work of art. The male body is utilitarian. It’s for gettin’ around. It’s like a Jeep

      • Francisco (FC) - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:42 PM

        So you’re saying the only good nude blog posts would be female softball player posts?

        Seinfeld was always rather meh to me. A few good moments, but otherwise I didn’t see it as any better than most other stuff out there.

      • DelawarePhilliesFan - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:51 PM

        “So you’re saying the only good nude blog posts would be female softball player posts?”

        Not necessarily – Amanda Kerr would do just fine as well

      • professormaddog31 - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:44 PM

        I appreciate this one a lot more than the Matt Harvey one, mostly because Mr. Stanton doesn’t have a completely busted face.

        /shallow

      • indaburg - Jul 9, 2013 at 4:40 PM

        Elaine was wrong. The male body can also a work of art. Michelangelo’s David, anyone? I like Seinfeld, but that line was written by someone with no appreciation for art.

    He eats fried Oreos and has a body like that?

    • Francisco (FC) - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:28 PM

      Most 20-somethings can eat anything and their metabolism will take care of it as long as they do proper exercise and don’t over-indulge. North of 26-27 though and all bets are off.

      • stlouis1baseball - Jul 9, 2013 at 4:38 PM

        “North of 26-27 though and all bets are off.”

        On point FC. Unfortunately, I didn’t figure that out until I turned 40.

    This is why injuries are so UTTERLY rampant in baseball today— The guy is ripped to the point that if he picked up a toothbrush the wrong way he would pull his oblique — Are these guys playing baseball or what ?? No wonder 75% of the posts on this blog are about injuries—who’s injured, who is recovering from an injury, and who is likely to be injured . Its ridiculous. And a big reason is these clowns all have to look like the second coming of Charles Atlas.

    • philsgamer - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:01 PM

      Pulled muscles come from a lack of hydration and/or inadequate warm-up/stretching routines.

      I’d rather my athletes look like gods than say someone like Joba Chamberlain?

    • aceshigh11 - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:45 PM

      The concept of being “musclebound” and it leading to injuries is incredibly outdated.

      Sorry to say, but your entire premise is incorrect.

      • historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:03 PM

        Still prefer Gary Player?

      • aceshigh11 - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:05 PM

        Hey the photos are out there if you want to see…I’m just impressed a 77-year old is in such good shape. It’s inspiring.

      • historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:06 PM

        Boooo!

        You make it no fun to tease you about it. :(

      • aceshigh11 - Jul 9, 2013 at 4:32 PM

        Serves you right for suggesting I’m lusting after a 77 year old man ;)

      • historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 4:43 PM

        C’mon. It’s funny, fanboy.

  5. historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 1:59 PM

    Oh my God, it just got terribly hot in here. Oh, my. Why did I spend so long on that Bible post????

    /sits down, fans herself

    • professormaddog31 - Jul 9, 2013 at 2:48 PM

      Yeah, this is a heck of a lot better than the last nekkid ballplayer post around these parts. This actually kinda looks like art, as opposed to the room service photo, which just makes me think of unfortunate TMZ.

      • historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:02 PM

        I liked the concept behind the caught streaking pic — it just looked weird b/c they were trying to get his legs in the picture which made it posed and unnatural.

    • paperlions - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:15 PM

      So…the heat and drought conditions in OK are not due to global warming, but are the result of the locals looking at so much internet porn?

      • historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:18 PM

        /sniffs

        I have no idea what you’re talking about. How’s the weather in CT? ;)

      • paperlions - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:21 PM

        Hot and sticky.

      • historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:23 PM

        Burnin’ up the internets like a disgraced televangelist, are you? The NSA is watching.

      • paperlions - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:25 PM

        Someone must be, it’s been in the 90s with nearly 100% humidity for the last week. Now that I know that porn causes local weather conditions…well….nothing will change, really.

      • historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:30 PM

        It’s 98* here right now. We’ll hit 100* by 5pm, I’m sure. The humidity is only 40% today, but it’s supposed to be hotter with a chance of rain tomorrow, so that’ll go up.

    • Old Gator - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:35 PM

      Would you like to swing on a star, Hissy?

      • historiophiliac - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:37 PM

        Well, I certainly wouldn’t wanna be a mule.

    kcrobert’s head must be spinning from this. So, you still think you’ve got prospects the Feesh would accept for that? Half your farm system and that giant badminton birdie on the lawn of the art museum still wouldn’t do it. Mike Dunn is available, though.

  9. ibleedroyalblue - Jul 9, 2013 at 3:38 PM

    One word…. YUM

  10. stlouis1baseball - Jul 9, 2013 at 5:27 PM

    So…push ups and sit ups huh? I also bet he doesn’t routinely drink 6 – 12 beers at a time.
    Maybe that would be a start.
    Yet…I am about to leave work…it’s been a bad day…and I want beer. Yeah…decisions.

    • petergammonsdrunknephew - Jul 9, 2013 at 8:05 PM

      The good news is you’ll never look like that anyway. So go ahead and have some beers. I know I am.

    Showed the picture to the wifey. Definite pupil dilation.
