Giancarlo Stanton

  1. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Oct 2, 2012, 6:16 AM EST

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Tigers 6, Royals 3: Before the season began I said something to the effect of “if I had to bet the lives of my children on the outcome of any division, it would be the Tigers winning the AL Central.” I repeated that line on the radio a bunch of times.  I was sweating it…

  2. Giancarlo Stanton aiming to return to action Wednesday

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:41 PM EST

    Finally, a dose of positive news for the Fish. Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton hasn’t appeared in a game since September 16 and is not in action Tuesday evening because of an intercostal muscle strain, but the 22-year-old outfielder told Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post that he is “optimistic” that he’ll be able to return…

  3. Giancarlo Stanton likely out until at least Friday

    Sep 18, 2012, 5:19 PM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton Getty

    Giancarlo Stanton is out of the Marlins’ lineup tonight for the second straight game with a strained oblique muscle and Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that he’ll remain sidelined until at least Friday. Stanton suffered the injury Saturday and was able to play through the discomfort Sunday while reaching base three times, but at this…

  4. Giancarlo Stanton out of Marlins lineup with sore right side

    Sep 17, 2012, 5:08 PM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton Getty

    Giancarlo Stanton was able to play Sunday after tweaking his right side during an at-bat Saturday, going 1-for-3 with two walks, but the Marlins right fielder is still sore enough that he’s out of the lineup tonight. Stanton told Joe Frisaro of MLB.com that he expects to be back in the lineup tomorrow, but Frisaro…

  5. Ozzie Guillen: Marlins terrible, but still trying

    Sep 15, 2012, 8:37 PM EST

    Ozzie Guillen

    When Ozzie Guillen bashed Buster Olney on Twitter Friday, he was merely criticizing the accusation that his team has given up.  On the other hand, he is perfectly willing to admit that his team isn’t any good. The Palm Beach Post has the quotes: “When you say I lose control of my team (and) they’re…

  6. Edwin Encarnacion joins the 40-homer club

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim  v Toronto Blue Jays

    For the third straight season the Blue Jays have a 40-homer hitter, as Edwin Encarnacion went deep last night for the 40th time after Jose Bautista reached that mark in both 2010 and 2011. Encarnacion has always had a ton of offensive upside, especially in terms of power potential, so much so that the Reds…

  7. Stephen Strasburg chased from final home start of season after three innings

    Sep 7, 2012, 8:39 PM EST

    Stephen Strasburg AP

    Stephen Strasburg‘s final start at Nationals Park this season ended up being a brief one, as he was chased after giving up five runs over just three innings tonight against the Marlins. Strasburg wasn’t fooling anyone, giving up six hits and three walks while striking out two. He threw just 37 out of 67 pitches…

  8. Giancarlo Stanton’s 30th homer puts him in elite company

    Sep 5, 2012, 11:03 AM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Random Elias statistical fun today:  Giancarlo Stanton‘s 30th homer yesterday marks the second straight year he’s hit 30.  And it makes him the fifth player to ever have consecutive 30-home run seasons before they turned 23.  The other four: Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols, Eddie Mathews and Jimmie Foxx. One day, after The Great Mushroom War, people in…

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

  10. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Cliff Lee

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

  12. The Marlins have talked about giving Giancarlo Stanton an extension

    Aug 21, 2012, 10:02 AM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays v Miami Marlins

    Giancarlo Stanton hit a couple of homers last night and brought his season line up to .288/.362/.595 with 26 bombs. He’s good, you see, so it makes sense that this is going down: “There’s no doubt, we are very happy that he’s a Marlin,’’ team president David Samson said. Samson said the Marlins have had…

  13. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EST

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  14. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Pirates Cardinals Baseball

    Pirates 6, Cardinals 3: For the second straight year the Pirates play a nineteen inning game. This time, unlike the game against the Braves in which they were royally screwed, the Pirates won. Thank you Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen who drove in runs in the 19th, Alvarez with a homer. They had to burn…

  15. Giancarlo Stanton hit a ball really far last night

    Aug 18, 2012, 9:20 AM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton Getty

    This title is somewhat misleading, as Giancarlo Stanton regularly hits moonshots. But his home run last night against the Rockies at Coors Field was particularly epic. The original estimate had it at 474 feet, but ESPN’s True Distance Hit Tracker had it at 494 feet, which would be the longest home run in MLB since…

  16. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 9, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Jose Reyes

    Marlins 13, Mets 0: Well, that one got out of hand. Chris Young was beaten like a red headed stepchild (can we still say that?), allowing two homers and four RBI to Giancarlo Stanton and a mess of runs to everyone else. Jose Reyes extends his hitting streak to 26 games. Giants 15, Cardinals 0:…

  17. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Rockford Files

    Tigers 6, Yankees 5: Miguel Cabrera homered for the third straight game. The dude is good. The Tigers have won six straight and, with the White Sox loss, pull to within a half game. Speaking of the Tigers, I found out last night that one of the people I hung out with at Comerica Park…

  18. Giancarlo Stanton returns from DL after missing 25 games

    Aug 7, 2012, 1:20 PM EST

    Giancario Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton was expected to miss 4-6 weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery on July 8 and sure enough he’s back from the disabled list one day short of a month later. Stanton returns after missing 25 games, during which the Marlins went 8-17 to fall out of contention and into a last-place tie in the…

  19. Giancarlo Stanton aiming to return from DL early next week

    Aug 2, 2012, 11:19 AM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays v Miami Marlins

    Giancarlo Stanton is scheduled to begin a brief minor-league rehab assignment today at Single-A and, barring a setback with his surgically repaired knee, hopes to come off the disabled list as soon as Tuesday versus the Mets. At the time of Stanton’s surgery on July 9 he was expected to miss 4-6 weeks, so he’s…

  20. Giancarlo Stanton expects to begin minor league rehab assignment Wednesday

    Jul 28, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays v Miami Marlins

    There may still be a reason to pay attention the Marlins over the final two months of the season, as Giancarlo Stanton‘s return from right knee surgery is just around the corner. According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, Stanton expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with High-A Jupiter. Stanton underwent…

  21. Really now, what should the Marlins have done?

    Jul 25, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    The Monstrosity

    Look, I’d be just as happy to kick Jeffrey Loria to the curb as the rest of you. I’m not going to slam him for all of the sliminess involving the Marlins ballpark deal because in those maneuverings, he’s basically just doing everything Bud Selig wants his owners to do. But, yeah, as far as MLB…

  22. Marlins move center fielder Emilio Bonifacio to second base

    Jul 24, 2012, 5:17 PM EST

    Nyjer Morgan, Emilio Bonifacio

    Yesterday the Marlins traded starting second baseman Omar Infante to the Tigers and today they announced that Emilio Bonifacio will take over for him there after playing center field all season. Bonifacio has plenty of experience all over the diamond, including nearly 500 career innings at second base, and the move would allow the Marlins…

  23. Stephen Strasburg beats Marlins, ends three-game skid

    Jul 15, 2012, 4:21 PM EST

    Stephen Strasburg

    Coming off three straight losses, Stephen Strasburg bounced back against Miami on Sunday, pitching six scoreless innings as part of the Nationals’ 4-0 victory. Strasburg struck out seven in improving to 10-4 with a 2.66 ERA for the season. Minus All-Star Giancarlo Stanton, the Marlins have scored a total of three runs in three games…

  24. Marlins place Giancarlo Stanton on DL following surgery, activate Emilio Bonifacio

    Jul 13, 2012, 4:19 PM EST

    Emilio Bonifacio AP

    It’s not quite a fair tradeoff, but the Marlins lost an outfielder to the disabled list and gained an outfielder from the DL. And it might be the best combination of never ever linked in the same transaction. Giancarlo Stanton was placed on the DL after undergoing knee surgery that will sideline him for 4-6…

  25. What to watch for in tonight’s All-Star Game

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EST

    Mike Trout

    Tonight’s 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will officially open with Detroit’s Justin Verlander throwing to Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez. Still, my favorite part will take place before that. The Midsummer Classic isn’t the must-see event it was before Baseball Tonight, MLB Extra Innings and MLB.tv made seeing the league’s stars in action so much easier.…
