he better f***ing be back. i took him as one of my two picks in the first round of my fantasy draft. hes embarrassing me right now.

 

on top of that he really balances the lineup.

 

its amazing how some of these injuries are made to sound to minor and yet the player is out for 2 months. its very annoying, like when a pitcher has some shoulder soreness or a "forearm strain" that ends up as tommy john surgery.

1) How did you have 2 picks in the first round?

2) That was really dumb of you.

 

 

i actually have quite the good team however i decided that I wanted to pick a catcher and outfielder first so i took mauer and didnt really know what the other guys were up to so I wanted to snatch stanton quickly.

 

i had the 14th pick out of 14 dudes so i got the 14th pick in the first round and the 1st pick of the second round.

 

i should have maybe let him go a round or two but i really wanted to get him. everyone was bitching at me but when ur picking 14th pujols, hanley, carlos gonzalez, cabrera all those guys were already gone.

I would assume he's ready to go tomorrow. I also have a hard time believing a guy in such great physical shape would be injury prone but you never know.

 

 

Ya gotta wonder how much of that off season work outs were on his legs. Or maybe his legs are just going to continue to be a problem for him.

 

Cody used to have the same problem. Leg injuries. Then one off season he did that experimental procedure in Colorado where they used his blood to inject in his hammies and he did much better.

Stanton out of Marlins' lineup until at least Friday

 

Slugger could pinch-hit, but likely will rest strained hamstring

By Joe Frisaro / MLB.com

 

MIAMI -- At 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, Mike Stanton provides size and strength to the Marlins' lineup.The team is seeing what life is like without him. The overall look of the team is different, as well as the production level.

 

Due to a strained left hamstring, Stanton will remain out of the starting lineup for at least the three-game series with the Nationals, which begins on Tuesday.

 

Manager Edwin Rodriguez said that the earliest the team anticipates Stanton's return to right field is the weekend series with the Astros in Houston.

 

Stanton experienced tightness in his left hamstring on Opening Day, and he was removed from the lineup after five innings. On Monday, he had an MRI exam, which revealed a mild strain.

 

"What that means is he's going to be able to pinch-hit, but he's not going to be able to run," Rodriguez said. "He's at 65, 70 percent right now. For the next three or four days, he might be able to pinch-hit, and then probably on the weekend, he will take the field."

 

Stanton took batting practice Tuesday, and afterward, he did some light running under the supervision of trainer Sean Cunningham.

 

"I feel better than I thought," Stanton said.

 

Rodriguez said the team is confident that Stanton won't go on the disabled list. But he won't start in the three games with the Nationals.

 

"No DL," Rodriguez said. "They say it's not that bad. He was hitting in the cages today. He's going to take batting practice on the field. He's going to be running after batting practice."

 

Even though Rodriguez says Stanton is available to pinch-hit, the 21-year-old slugger is viewed more as a last option.

 

Having Stanton batting cleanup gives the lineup an entirely different look. Without him, Gaby Sanchez is batting fourth, and Emilio Bonifacio is getting more playing time in right field.

 

The Marlins won on Opening Day with Stanton in the lineup against the Mets. But they scored a total of six runs in the two games the slugger didn't play against the Mets.

 

Depth is an issue with the Marlins.

 

"Like we've been saying since Spring Training, we have a very small margin for error," Rodriguez said. "When you take Michael Stanton away from that lineup, it's a huge difference right in the middle of that lineup.

 

"It shows more in the bottom of the order. When Michael is in the middle, you can see the whole lineup -- one through eight -- is pretty good. I think not having him in the middle of the order is a huge setback."
