I think he's a solid player, but he has some big holes in his game that the league will catch up to if he doesn't adjust.

I feel kind of cheated we didn't get a chance to read drama like this all winter long... It's delicious that being a Marlin for life is framed as a punishment for Stanton.

Kind of an empty threat with the opt out Stanton has..... and still has.

I'd bet .357 will be his career high for a season.


Could be, though I doubt it. Mauer has had 4 seasons higher, and Stanton hits the ball harder than Joe. But even if it is, it won't be by a significant amount. I'd imagine he'll be in the Miguel Cabrera range for his career, which is .344.
