    Giancario Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton is out of the Marlins’ lineup today for the third straight game because of a knee injury and told Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald that he’s unlikely to return before Friday, putting his status for the All-Star game in some doubt. Stanton indicated that he’ll skip the All-Star game and the Home…

  2. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

  3. Matt Kemp picks his Home Run Derby squad

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Squad captain Matt Kemp announced Sunday that he’s chosen the Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez, the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton and the Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran to participate alongside himself in the Home Run Derby. Kemp plans to take part in the contest, even though he’s still expected to be on the disabled list as he continues his recovery…

  4. Reds feel they were intentionally snubbed by National League All-Star manager Tony La Russa

    Jul 1, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    Tony La Russa, the honorary manager of this year’s National League All-Star team, got to hand-select only nine of the players for his roster. And he had to be sure that every organization was represented. He went with left-hander Wade Miley (as the Diamondbacks’ only rep), outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (as the Marlins’ only rep), Huston…

  6. Giancarlo Stanton will be in the Home Run Derby

    I don’t really care that much about the competition aspects of the Home Run Derby. I do, however, like to see mammoth blasts for their own sake, either in sheer distance or in quantity. After all, what’s the most memorable Home Run Derby thing ever? Josh Hamilton putting on the laser show at Yankee Stadium,…

  7. Matt Kemp won’t pick Bryce Harper for Home Run Derby

    Jun 27, 2012, 11:50 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    MLB decided a year ago to spice things up a bit by letting a captain pick his roster for the Home Run Derby. It added to the fun the first time it was tried. Things might be starting to get interesting this time around, too. Despite popular demand, Matt Kemp told USATODAY that 19-year-old Bryce…

  8. The Cubs have landed Jorge Soler

  9. You’re not gonna believe this, but Mike Trout and Bryce Harper were MLB Rookies of the Month

    Get used to this. From a bevy of MLB press releases that just filled my inbox: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Mike Trout has been voted American League Rookie of the Month for May … Bryce Harper has been voted National League Rookie of the Month for May. Trout hit .324 (35-for-108) with six doubles, two triples,…

  10. NBC SportsTalk: One-on-one with Giancarlo Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton Getty

    There are few things in this game more majestic than a Giancarlo Stanton home run, but he’s also a pretty good interview. Here’s Stanton’s appearance on NBC SportsTalk last night, where he talks about his incredible 12-homer month of May and what it’s like to play for Ozzie Guillen.

  11. Giancarlo Stanton went from one homer in April to MLB’s best hitter in May

    May 31, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    Giancario Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton homered 56 times in his first 250 career games, but when he began this season by going homerless in his first 19 games there were plenty of questions about what was wrong with the 22-year-old Marlins slugger. It turns out, the answer was … nothing. Stanton snapped his homerless streak on April 29…

    May 29, 2012, 5:47 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    White Sox 2, Rays 1: Chris Sale: 15Ks and three hits in seven and a third. Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer. Red Sox 7, Tigers 4: Jim Leyland said that we saw what we saw and should write what we saw, so let’s do that: The Red Sox’ second inning rally never should have happened…

    Another night, another disappointing performance for Tim Lincecum. The two-time Cy Young Award failed to get back on track last night against the Marlins, giving up six runs over 5 2/3 innings as part of a 7-6 loss. Lincecum allowed just one run over the first five innings — a long solo blast by Giancarlo…

    San Diego Padres v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 4, Padres 0: Tough break for San Diego to have Adam Wainwright figure it out and throw a four-hit shutout while they were in town, but I really do need them to go on a bad skid right now. I’m taking my kids to their first major league game when we go to San…

  15. Giancarlo Stanton murdered a baseball and broke a scoreboard

    May 22, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Stanton home run

    I mentioned this in the recaps, but this is worth its own post: Giancarlo Stanton’s homer off Jamie Moyer last night was something to behold.  For a couple of reasons. First, it was a freaking shotgun blast. It left the bat at 122.4 miles per hour according to ESPN’s home run stats thingy. That’s the…

    Marlins 7, Rockies 4: Jamie Moyer pitched in his 50th different major league park. But he may have given up his longest most hellacious homer ever. Giancarlo Stanton hit a grand slam that went 438 feet in basically a straight line and broke the friggin’ scoreboard. Roy Hobbs stuff, there. Gave the Marlins the lead and,…

  17. Marlins don’t plan on moving in fences at new ballpark

    marlins park outfield getty

    Marlins Park features some of the largest outfield dimensions in the major leagues and has already held in a number of shots off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton, among other big-league sluggers, that would have been home runs in other stadiums. But the Fish aren’t tempted to make any changes. Here’s Marlins president David Samson,…

    Reds 9, Nationals 6: Joey Votto hit three homers including a walkoff grand slam.  Yeah, that’ll play. The back end of the Nats bullpen continues to be horrific. Marlins 8, Mets 4: Earlier in the day Giancarlo Stanton hit a walkoff slam of his own capping a six-run bottom of the ninth for Miami. Heath…

  19. Giancarlo Stanton hits walkoff grand slam versus Mets

    May 13, 2012, 4:37 PM EDT

    Giancario Stanton

    The Marlins have had some big ninth-inning struggles this season. Today, they turned the tables on the Mets. Giancarlo Stanton hit a walkoff grand slam as part of a six-run bottom of the ninth as the Marlins topped the Mets 8-4. The game was tied 2-2 entering the ninth when the Mets rallied for two…

    Last night was a good night to stink because so much other stuff was happening. This is especially true if your team won.  And it’s especially true if the stat that says you stink — blown save — was given to another guy.  But don’t think you got away with this, Heath Bell, we were…

    Texas Rangers v Toronto Blue Jays

    Blue Jays 8, Rangers 7:  We hear a lot about Bryce Harper, but Brett Lawrie is a more fully formed version of “young, confident dude who can be a difference maker.”  Toronto fought back from an early 5-0 deficit, took the lead, then blew the lead before Lawrie hit a leadoff homer that just barely cleared…

  23. Astros’ 5-foot-5 hitting machine Jose Altuve goes 4-for-5, now batting .377 at age 21

    Jose Altuve

    Houston’s offense is one of the most improved in baseball and sophomore second baseman Jose Altuve is a big reason why. He came into today hitting .344 with a .918 OPS and notched four more hits in a 7-5 victory over the Brewers. Altuve is a really fun player to watch because he’s 5-foot-5 (on…

    Marlins 5, Astros 4: Omar Infante and Hanley Ramirez hit home runs, finally putting that crazy home run sculpture into action. Somehow we all survived, though I’m not ruling out the possibility that we all got thrown into an alternate timeline or something and won’t truly realize it until all the crazy occult stuff starts…

    Miami Marlins v St Louis Cardinals

    Giancarlo Stanton was scratched from the lineup the other day due to some soreness in his left knee. He’s back — got a couple of hits yesterday — but he’s still aching. And it seems like that’s not going to go away any time soon, reports Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post: But the…
