    2018 Giancarlo Stanton Performance Thread

    I hope it's not premature to start this

    Solid article with some background about his life and such:
    http://www.nj.com/yankees/index.ssf/...s_to_know.html

    Also:
    Giancarlo Cruz Michael Stanton is called Mike by his father, Cruz by his mother and Mikey by a lot of relatives. He went by Giancarlo when starting elementary school, switched to Mike in the fifth grade and then went back to Giancarlo in 2012.
    "The man of a million names," Stanton told reporters in February 2012. “I respond to many names. It's all good."

    The grade-school change from Giancarlo to Mike occurred because he was tired of teachers and classmates saying his name wrong.
    "No one could pronounce it right," he said. "Everyone thought it was two words. Gene-carlo, Juan-carlo, Gionne-carlo. You have seven periods in school, so seven times a day, 'No, that's not the name.' (Mike) was just easier. If you can't pronounce that, then there's something wrong with you."
    Stanton switched back to Giancarlo when reporting to spring training in 2012, his third big-league season, and he’s been Giancarlo ever since.
    Besides his multiple names, does he have any baseball nicknames that people know of?

    BR lists his nickname as Bigfoot.

    Still cannot believe he is a Yankee
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Stanton’s agent, Joel Wolfe, said that Stanton has no intention of opting out after 2020. “He wanted to be sure because this is it.”

    That does not sound like Sterling at all. It will involve singing because "Stanton" sounds a little like "standin' " which shows up in many song lyrics.

    Ringer called him TMGS (The Mighty Giancarlo Stanton); not necessarily a nickname, but I like that the most.

    130 wRC+.

    66th out of 198 qualifiers in MLB so far this year.

    Literally in the top third of the league with his poor start.

    He clearly needs to go. Just can't handle the pressure.

    I think he should be booed as soon as he returns to New York again.

    So far he absolutely kills the Sox.

    He’s gotta make an adjustment against righties. The platoon split is so pronounced that it can’t be a coincidence.

    Re: 2018 Giancarlo Stanton Performance Thread

    Maybe he should try switch-hitting?
