    2019 Giancarlo Stanton Performance Thread

    He hit a three-run homer in SWB's 16-3 loss at Durham. Durham's Jake Cronenworth had a home run, triple, double, and 2 walks, but no single. Only 9 MLB players from 1908 to the present have done that. Of those players, Carlos Santana is the only active one, and Willie Mays is the best one.

    So, are you saying that going a single short of the cycleóplus two walksóis a rarer feat than hitting for the cycle?

    I would assume so. It basically boils down to what is more common, getting one single or two walks (plus no singles) in the same game.

    I am not looking forward to Gian's return because he isn't likely to listen to Marcus Thames's advice to hit the ball where it's pitched instead of trying to pull the ball.

    Youíre right. Fangraphs isnít updated. If they keep playing like the past 2 weeks, they probably will be soon though.

    Not gonna lie, that's a very nice looking starting lineup. Now, just need to go all in for Scherzer or even Bumgarner.

    Moving Voit that far down would be a mistake, one of our best OBP guys. Iíd probably have him hit 3.

    Against RHP, Gardner has hit much better than Hicks has. Just something to keep an eye on. You canít give up on Hicks this early obviously.

    Hicks had a 132 wRC+ against RHP last year. He may get back into the leadoff spot against RHP when he gets going but DJ has been too good there.

    Gardner will rotate in plenty against RHP though giving rest to one of the 3 OFs.

    I was hoping for a trade straight up the Parrot Post Man for Stanton I know everyone must think I'm crazy but think of the contracts straight up trade the M'S COULD DRAW MVP SEE crowds .nice

    1. Interesting that you know his relationship with Marcus Thames, doubly interesting that you know Marcus Thames has a philosophy to "hit the ball where it's pitched." Source?

    2. We didn't see the best of Stanton last year, he pissed me off personally plenty of times I admit but even in a bad year he was still good. "Good" Stanton is one of the most dynamic offensive players in baseball, I actually look forward to taking a look.

    Yea but if youíre going to rest him and they certainly will, you do it against LHP whenever you reasonably can. Plus Gio deserves to play although he also hits RHP better. So Didi doesnít need to sit against lefties but Iíd do it more often than not especially since Gardner will never play against lefties so if youíre resting someone it should be an INF with Didi the obvious choice.

    Does anyone really think Scherzer will be available?

    And doe anyone think Bumgarner is worth it barring a complete salary dump.

    The 2019 Giancarlo Stanton Performance Thread

    I think it's very telling that I came looking for this thread and had to create it - even Encarnarcion & David Hale had their own threads lol.

    As a fan base, I don't know if Stanton will ever be praised or even just accepted by us. It seems like no matter what he does we'll either want more of the successes or just remember all the times he fails. It kind of reminds me of rooting for Dave Winfield - a great talent, but never seemed to do enough.

    Anyway, I wanted to discuss Stanton's batting stance and game plan when he goes up to bat. I think he's too far back from the plate and too closed to be able to handle the pitches he sees, as a whole.

    No way he can cover down and away, no way he can cover high and inside, IMO. Just six inches closer to the plate and just a wee bit more open should help him, in my uneducated opinion. He's much more vulnerable to swings-and-misses than most of the other hitters on this squad.

    I was traveling and haven’t been watching. So I can’t comment on a new stance. However, I have no problem with Stanton. He had a very good season last year. Many fans can’t separate the player’s salary from the player but some here definitely can.

    No one can blame Stanton if he chooses to stand farther from home plate than normal. I am sure that the baseball to his face years ago has him standing where he stands.
