|Not pictured: Erections of Marlins fans|
In his second year and his first full big league season, Stanton doesn't feel he has enough time in the game to do anything to draw additional attention to himself.So there you go, Mike Stanton is the anti-Hanley. And his Twitter is super boring, so he's also the anti-LoMo while we're at it. Glad we've sorted that out.
So when he unloads on his big blasts, he simply drops the bat and runs. On those shots he isn't sure have a chance, he is hustling, just in case the ball doesn't clear the fence.
What would it take for Stanton to "pimp" a home run?
"If they threw at me, for no reason," he said. "Or to intimidate me or whatever, then I will. If I'm upset about something."
Another time he would show more excitement is if it is a walk-off homer.
"Other than that, there is no need to," he said.
