That 2 spot is perfect tor him:

 

.289/.391/.630/1.021 on pace for 138-59-111

 

He is definitely going to score more runs and get more plate appearances on average.

Now has 30 HR's on the season...

 

Man if only this guy were as good as Aaron Judge :/

 

You gotta wonder if he's sparked by the fact that Judge has basically surpassed him as the HR King ( Through half a season).

Actually just came here to say this. It's probably nothing, but I totally respect his "F Aaron Judge" last few weeks.

He's so locked in right now. So much for his value being affected by the power surge.

How a guy with so much power and athleticism can look SO bad at the plate so often is beyond me.  I dont think he is ever going to put up that "wow" season. 

 

His K rate is significantly better than ever and he's on pace for over 50 home runs. WOW!

I need some of the **** you're smokin.  He hasnt been anything close to awesome.  Judge has been awesome.  Stanton has hit .219 with only 6 hrs and has somehow only managed 11 rbi.  I dont feel like going to fangraphs and seeing how many K's or LOB hes had in that time.

Just shows you how quickly things change in baseball.  2 weeks ago he wasn't awesome (even though he was) and now he's a top 10 player after dropping dong 30.

Waaaaah he only homered once that one week in April lol

 

guy is lighting up like a pinball machine but no one can ever just admit they were wrong 

 

I'm gonna look through all your posts looking for admissions....

 

We all do it. Stanton is a stud and expect him to perform like one for 162. Fantasy players are fickle characters.

I don't know... I complain when guys suck. He has never sucked this season. Not once did he warrant complaint for any reason. 

 

Yoenis cespedes offers amazing perpective

Another thing that has always held him back and hasn't so far this year, is he is healthy and not missing a 1/3 of the games. He always had the power and no one ever denied it.

There were some people here saying that because he never hit 40, he wasn't a 40+ HR hitter. And to date he still hasn't, to be fair to those people. He clearly has the ability, all that matters at this point is his health.

Wish he was consistent though.

 

There's my negative Nancy........Waaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!!

 

Wish fantasy managers could appreciate the awesome players they have and not whine about them.

 

I'm just happy Chief Broken Face is digging in and not showing any fear at the plate.  Of course, the face-mask probably helps

Get your sarcasm meter tuned up.  It's clearly busted.
