Profiles in Lack of Lineup Protection

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller

Can Giancarlo Stanton succeed without a good cleanup hitting behind him?

A few days before the season started, I wrote about Marlins manager Mike Redmond’s decision to consider batting Placido Polanco in the cleanup slot. Most of the article was about where Polanco would rank among historically terrible cleanup hitters, but it ended with this:

Skewed Left: Giancarlo Stanton and Being Alone in the Lineup

Zachary Levine

Where do you bat a player who's his team's only home run threat?

The heavyweight of the 818 is pissed. So said Giancarlo Stanton’s Twitter feed after most of his remaining brothers from what was still a pretty bash-less offense were taken away from him in the Marlins-Blue Jays swap.

Lonely in the offense last year despite the presence of Jose Reyes and John Buck plus partial seasons of Omar Infante and Hanley Ramirez, Stanton became even lonelier after the trade. His extreme power in a poor lineup and a difficult home run ballpark for normal human beings will give him an outside shot at the highest percentage of a team’s home runs hit by one player in the expansion era.

Giancarlo Stanton is on a home-run rampage.

The Weekend Takeaway
Eleven-game, three-city road trips in the August heat are not for the faint of heart. But Giancarlo Stanton doesn’t mind. 

The Marlins stumbled to a 5-6 finish on their National League West tour, splitting four-game sets with the Rockies and Diamondbacks and avoiding a sweep with a 6-2 victory over the Dodgers on Sunday. Stanton left his mark at all three venues.

Pebble Hunting: The Rockies and Real Home Run Hitters

Sam Miller

Giancarlo Stanton's recent rampage against the Rockies inspires two questions: Have the Rockies ever had a "real" power hitter? And if not, why the heck haven't they?

We'll start as soon as Giancarlo Stanton's home run in Coors Field from last Friday night lands.

The longest home run hit in almost three years went out on Friday night. You know you want to watch it.

On Friday night, with the Marlins losing 5-4 to the Rockies in the top of the sixth and Josh Roenicke on the mound, Giancarlo Stanton hit an important home run. It wasn't important because it tied the game, although the Marlins would go on to win by one run. This was a matchup between two last-place teams, so the outcome was about as inconsequential as the outcomes of baseball games come. It was important because it looked like this:
