Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a walk against the Padres on Thursday.
Stanton blasted his four home run in his last 10 games on Thursday night, bringing his season total to 11 with 40 RBI while supporting a .294 average. There has been little to complain about with his production in the early going and as long as he can stay off the trainer's table he will continue to be on pace for a career-year so sit back and enjoy the ride.

Lions will not use the franchise tag on DT Ndamukong Suh.
There has been a lot of back-and-forth internally as to whether the Lions want to bring Suh back and obviously cost is a major issue as he will command quite the hefty salary on the open market. But they won't use the franchise tag here as they know the bitterness it will cause between player and team. Look for the Lions to make the defensive lineman a competitive offer but they won't break the bank to keep him. Analysis: Howard Bender
