Giancarlo Stanton

  1. Breaking down the huge Toronto-Miami trade

    Nov 13, 2012, 8:16 PM EDT

    Jose Reyes

    It’s not official yet, but here are some early thoughts on the trade as it’s currently being presented: Blue Jays acquire SS Jose Reyes, RHP Josh Johnson, LHP Mark Buehrle, INF-OF Emilio Bonifacio, C John Buck and $4 million from the Marlins for SS Yunel Escobar, RHP Henderson Alvarez, SS Adeiny Hechvarria, LHP Justin Nicolino,…

  2. It’s time for Bud Selig to force Jeffrey Loria out of MLB

    Nov 13, 2012, 7:33 PM EDT

    Jeffrey Loria

    Jeffrey Loria has long been on the short list of MLB’s worst owners, but he’s truly outdone himself now by trading Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle, just one year after signing them to long-term deals, along with Josh Johnson, Emilio Bonifacio and John Buck to the Blue Jays on Tuesday. Of course, the topper is…

  3. Giancarlo Stanton not happy about Marlins’ firesale

    Nov 13, 2012, 7:14 PM EDT

    giancarlo stanton getty

    Giancarlo Stanton, who is one of the few productive members of the 2012 Marlins not packing his bags for Toronto, just publicly voiced his displeasure with tonight’s still-developing blockbuster trade: Alright, I’m pissed off!!! Plain & Simple — Giancarlo Stanton (@Giancarlo818) November 13, 2012 We’d guess that many Marlins fans are feeling the same way. What…

  4. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    Nov 5, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

  5. An early guess at Team USA’s WBC lineup

    Oct 17, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

    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…

  7. Giancarlo Stanton aiming to return to action Wednesday

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:41 PM EDT

    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…

  8. Giancarlo Stanton likely out until at least Friday

    Sep 18, 2012, 5:19 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 17, 2012, 5:08 PM EDT

    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…

  10. Ozzie Guillen: Marlins terrible, but still trying

    Sep 15, 2012, 8:37 PM EDT

    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…

  11. Edwin Encarnacion joins the 40-homer club

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 7, 2012, 8:39 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 5, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 27, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 21, 2012, 10:02 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    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…

  20. Giancarlo Stanton hit a ball really far last night

    Aug 18, 2012, 9:20 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 9, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    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:…

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

    Aug 8, 2012, 6:14 AM EDT

    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…

  23. Giancarlo Stanton returns from DL after missing 25 games

    Aug 7, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 2, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 28, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    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…
