Updates & News
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:
Matt Duffy went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Duffy has a five-game hit streak going and has homered twice in those five games. His .361 BABIP will tail off, but he could still hit .255-.260, which is about average in mixed leagues. The real question is whether he can keep hitting for power. His HR/FB rate won’t hold, but he’s also hitting very few fly balls so far. If he elevates the ball a bit more, he could continue to provide some pop. Analysis: Brett Talley
