Giancarlo Stanton

  1. Curt Schilling and Alex Cora pick Ryan Howard for NL MVP

    Mar 29, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Ryan Howard

    I’m not lying. Thankfully, the rest made reasonable picks in Joey Votto (17 votes), Buster Posey and Bryce Harper (six), Ryan Braun and Justin Upton (three), Andrew McCutchen (two), and Matt Kemp, Jason Heyward and Giancarlo Stanton (one). Ryan Howard is 33 years old and is still visibly limping from an Achilles injury that caused…

  2. Marlins’ cleanup hitter might be … Placido Polanco

    Mar 25, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Placido Polanco

    Giancarlo Stanton is going to be pitched around a ton this season, so who the Marlins pick to bat behind him in the cleanup spot is an important decision. And first-year manager Mike Redmond told Joe Frisaro of MLB.com that he’s giving serious consideration to using Placido Polanco. Yes, that Placido Polanco. Polanco is 37…

  3. Puerto Rico boots the U.S. out of the World Baseball Classic

    Mar 15, 2013, 10:36 PM EDT

    Nelson Figueroa

    Puerto Rico starter Nelson Figueroa was in top form in an elimination game tonight against the United States. The well-traveled right-hander tossed six shut-out innings, holding the opposition to four base runners on two hits, one walk, and one error. He was staked to an early 1-0 lead when Mike Aviles hit a two-out RBI…

    R.A. Dickey

    Craig Kimbrel allowed a total of one double in 62 2/3 innings for the Braves last year. Maybe even more impressive, he allowed just one hit with a man in scoring position. He never allowed multiple hits in an inning. On Thursday, he gave up one double and two hits with men in scoring position…

    Team USA will be without their hottest hitter for tonight’s second-round World Baseball Classic matchup against the Dominican Republic.

  9. Overcoming Torre is Team USA’s biggest win yet

    Mar 10, 2013, 7:57 PM EDT

    Joe Torre

    Four sacrifice bunt attempts in one game. I’d be pretty disgusted if it were the Marlins trying such a thing to beat the Mets in mid-August. But, no, that’s what Team USA did on Sunday on its way to topping Canada 9-4. Technically, it will go into the books at three sacrifice bunt attempts, since…

  14. How good can Giancarlo Stanton be?

    Mar 1, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Despite a right knee injury that kept him out of 25 games between July and August, and a September strained oblique that cost him nine games, Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton still hit 37 home runs. While the Marlins began pawning off parts of their roster, sending Hanley Ramirez to the Dodgers, Stanton became an offensive…

    Feb 26, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Jeffrey Loria

    For the first time in months, Jeff Loria met the press. He did so at last night’s Marlins game. Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post has a detailed rundown of the interview. This was a the highlight for me. Loria was asked if he realizes fans hate him: I have a sense of it.…

    Feb 15, 2013, 10:36 PM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton AP

    Giancarlo Stanton was understandably peeved after the Marlins unloaded Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle and Emilio Bonifacio in a trade with the Blue Jays in December. However, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com notes that Stanton took the high road at Marlins’ camp today in his first public comments of the spring. “You’re not going to…

  20. The Marlins sign Casey Kotchman

    Feb 15, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

    Casey Kotchman

    The Miami Marlins just announced that they signed Casey Kotchman.  Not gonna say Casey Kotchman doesn’t streak across my radar very often, but I had no idea that he wasn’t on a team. This time next year I imagine he’ll replace Miguel Cairo as that guy I am shocked to learn is still in baseball…

    That’s the way new Marlins manager Mike Redmond is looking to kick off his lineup; Juan Pierre, Placido Polanco and Giancarlo Stanton are likely to occupy the top three spots. Sadly, Pierre and Polanco seemed like givens to bat first and second from the moment they were plucked from the bargain bin this winter. The…

    Jan 14, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Austin Kearns

    Last season Austin Kearns turned a minor-league contract with the Marlins into a part-time bench role and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the 33-year-old outfielder is expected to re-sign on another minor-league deal. Kearns appeared in 87 games and logged 175 plate appearances, hitting .245 with a .733 OPS. That doesn’t sound…
