Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins has been an absolute beast since the All-Star break. In the month of August alone he has 18 home runs and 30 home runs in his last 48 games. Giancarlo Stanton is already the first player since 2013 to hit over 50 home runs. With 51 home runs and 31 games left Giancarlo Stanton has a real chance to break the REAL home run record set by Roger Maris of 61. Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Mark Mcgwire all broke Roger Maris’ record multiple times, but of course were all on steroids. Stanton is hitting about 1 home run every 2 games so if he keeps that pace up Roger Maris can kiss his record goodbye. An underrated part of this Stanton hot streak is that the Marlins are actually winning too. Its one thing to put up stats. It is a whole other thing to put up stats that help your team gets wins. The Marlins are above .500 and are in the race for the last wild card spot. If you are a Marlins fans you have to be excited. Giancarlo Stanton is close to breaking a record that has stood the test of time for over 50 years, the Marlins are winning, and Derek Jeter just replaced the worst owner in Baseball. My prediction, Stanton finished with 63 dingers.
