What did Stanton really just do in Coors Field?
- Updated: August 20, 2012
That says it all. Giancarlo owns Coors Field and Rockies pitchers. He hit 6 home runs over 6 consecutive games over two season at Coors Field. He is setting records not only at Coors Field but in baseball for home runs in one park and its not even his own park!! Most of those numbers were set by people at their home stadium where they had a larger sample size to do it. Stanton did it in 6 games. Seriously imagine if Stanton played at Coors Field 81 times a year or in the NL west were they have 9 games a year at Colorado. Wow the damage that would be done. Also these aren’t little altitude cheap ones. Lets look at this chart posted before Saturday’s home run.
Those balls are clearing the fence and more. These balls are going over 450 feet and Friday’s went 494 ft. Enough to make the Colorado Rockies announcer say that the ball went “stupid” far. So where did Saturday’s ball go?
That’s right, top of the concourse and OUT of Coors Field. Giancarlo is simply “stupid” strong. “Only” 465 feet. On Sunday he didn’t get much to hit, because Jim Tracy was fed up with seeing these bombs go out and he had his home crowd booing each intentional walk. Even their crowd wants to see “Monster shots”
Giancarlo is special and now the Marlins organization really needs to go out and give him that extension he deserves. If you noticed Reyes and Stanton together could carry a team to wins as you saw Friday and Saturday and quite frankly saw in the Marlins 21-8 month of May. A hot Stanton means a lot of Marlins wins. So, Marlins organization, the first thing you must do this summer is not go out and find a free agent, its give Stanton that extension and create from there because I want to see this for many many more years to come.
- The Marlins ended up splitting with Colorado and head to Arizona (another hitter’s park) for 4 games in 3 days… Weird huh? Thanks collective bargaining agreement. I think players would rather play one game a day then doubleheaders and the off day.
-Isn’t it crazy that Coors Field, is the third oldest stadium in the NL and the oldest of the new ballparks? The Marlins are also visiting the 5th oldest and 2nd oldest stadiums in the NL. Crazy how everyone except the Dodgers and Cubs in the NL has joined in on the new stadium binge.
-The lineup saw the return of Bonifacio, Ruggiano, and Donnie Murphy. Murphy hitting behind Stanton as “protection” is questionable at best. Solano or Dobbs is obviously a better choice depending on the starter. Ozzie hopefully fixes that tomorrow.
