Baseball Is Fun

We’re not just simply running out of ways to express how much of a freak Giancarlo Stanton is, we’re running out of ways to express this very introductory thought, as well. Everyotherday, it seems, he’s doing something he shouldn’t be capable of doing. But that’s Stanton. I fully believe he’s a player with skills on a level of his own.
