It’s not often that a baseball player can show you just how much he’s worth with one swing of the bat, but Miami Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton tried his best today during Spring Training.
In a move that surprises no one who has been following the Miami Marlins, owner Jeffrey Loria told the print media Monday evening that the team will not be offering All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton a contract this year.
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: the Miami Marlins have a superstar in the making on the roster, swear they’re not going to trade him, and then word gets out the team is listening to offers for said player.
The last time the Miami Marlins had to deal with a player with the wrong name, the team lost a closing pitcher for part of the season. Luckily for the Marlins, this time around the player who will be called by a different name is doing it voluntarily.
