On Thursday, widespread reports circulated that the Mets had their eye on Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Michael Cardano of RotoExperts.com, however, originally broke this story right here in February, and his report was widely shot down by skeptics on the Mets beat.
Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton is ready to build the home run numbers last year that helped establish him as one of the top young sluggers in baseball. He is doing so by shattering/autographing the windshields of cars in the parking lot with spring training blasts.
The moment the Miami Marlins shipped their chances of winning to the Toronto Blue Jays, the question in MLB front offices around the league was: would the fire sale in South Florida include Giancarlo Stanton? The Marlins say no – but should you believe them?

Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, the two runners on base, subsequently scored.
Jamie Moyer is 49 years old, yet still pitching in the major leagues. How does he do it? Precision. He needs to locate his (much, much slower than average) pitches in exactly the right spots to get batters to chase. When this works, it’s a sight to behold. When it doesn’t…
