Giancarlo Stanton had himself a night, smacking two home runs while driving in three RBI and a pair of runs scored in the Marlins 6-5 win over the Cardinals on Monday.
Stanton pummeled Shelby Miller in the first and third inning of the ballgame. They were home runs number 31 and 32 of the season. The massive effort pushes his season line to .292/.393/.568 with the aforementioned 32 home runs overlooked 10 stolen bases. He's having the massive season we've been waiting for and he's a surefire first round pick in next year's drafts. ANALYST:

Jets have been trying to lower Percy Harvin's salary to keep him.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports' said that he "would be shocked" if Percy Harvin agreed to take a cut in pay to stay in New York.

The New England Patriots have let it be known that they are big fans of the wide receiver and would be a prime candidate to pick him up if he became available. Analysis: Drew Phelps
