Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored against the Mets on Saturday.
Stanton has now blasted three home runs over his last 10 games as his hot start to the 2014 season continues. He is sporting a lofty 13.9 AB/HR in the early going, which would put him on pace to reach the 40 home runs handily if he was to keep up that incredible pace. Even if he slows down a bit as the season progresses, his power stroke is the real deal and will continue to be a force to be reckon with in the middle of the Marlins lineup and fantasy lineups alike.

Chris Carter is being shopped by the Astros.
With the tender deadline coming up fast and Houston seemingly having a never-ending stream of power-hitting DH types it makes sense that Carter would be being shopped. Whether or not Houston gets a solid return for him is yet to be determined but his power plays just about anywhere. If the 'Stros can't pull off a deal Carter could command $6 million in arbitration.

The Dolphins will sign Robert Thomas off the Patriots practice squad.
Thomas was just recently signed to the Patriots practice squad about two weeks ago. Since coming out of Arkansas in 2014 he has seen time with three, now four, organizations in Washington, Seattle, the aforementioned Patriots, and now Miami. The Dolphins are struggling this year and this could be a move to simply stockpile bodies to scout but in any case he won't have a meaningful effect on the defense. Analysis: Matt Selz
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones believes Tony Romo can be the Cowboys starter for at least 4 more years.
This is far from the first time that Jerry Jones has spoken for one of his players and it surely won't be the last. Romo is 35 now and has a history of injuries including the two breaks of the same clavicle this season. QB's can play until 40, which is what Romo would be in four to five years but generally they don't have the missed games due to injuries that Jones' boy does. In the end all that matter is what Romo deems to be the right time to call it a career, but in the meantime Jones and his staff better find a replacement. Analysis: Matt Selz
