Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Marlins 7-1 win over the Angels on Monday.
With Stanton's 33rd home run of the season on Monday, he has now reached 150 home runs for his career, which makes him the third youngest active player to reach that milestone at the age of 24 years and 290 days old. Only Albert Pujols (24 years, 212 days) and Alex Rodriguez (24 years, 255 days) reach the 150 home run club faster. This has been a great season for the Marlins slugger, who is now slashing .299/.407/.566 with 97 RBI to go along with his league-lead in long balls, as he make a serious run for NL MVP consideration.

Jeremy Langford had 30 snaps compared to 37 for Matt Forte on Thursday night.
On the one hand, Langford has played well enough to earn increased playing time, as he became the first Bears rookie running back with rushing touchdowns in four consecutive games since Walter Payton. On the other hand, Matt Forte was playing for the first time since spraining his MCL, and his limited work load could be a result of wanting to ease him back into action. We will have to see how the snaps shake out in Week 13 before we can draw too many conclusions. Analysis: Steve Pimental
