Giancarlo is rocking a new batting stance in the WBC. Love love love it.

I've never paid up for him due to streakiness, swing-and-miss, and injury concerns  but I really believe this is the year it all comes together.

 

This is the change in approach/stance that has been needed. 

 

.263 -47-124   NL leader in slugging percentage

Well, with this guy performance has never been an issue with this guy. Always puts up .900-.950 OPS. The problem with him is his health. I prefer he doesn't try to change anything with his approach/stance. Highly doubt his stance has anything to do with his injuries.

I think the change will promote better consistency. The upside just got even higher

Why do you guys insist a healthy Stanton cannot produce in runs? 

 

Projected over a full season:

 

2014 -- 99 runs

2015 -- 103 runs

 

No one expects him to play every game but this underscores that a healthy Stanton can still be productive in that category.

So let's gauge his value. What OF would you take right before Stanton, and which OF right after? Assuming a standard league.

 

Me personally....George Springer right before, Gregory Polanco right after.

Any list where Avisail Garcia is fourth on should be taken with a grain of salt.. 

 

Also tells me that Garcia is a hand adjustment away from hitting bombs.  Right now he just kills gophers.
