Fresh off the disabled list, having missed more than forty days with a hamstring strain, Giancarlo Stanton takes Brewers reliever Jim Henderson deeeeeeeep to left center field to put the woeful Marlins ahead of the nearly-as-woeful Brewers in the bottom of the 8th inning.
A healthy Stanton makes the 2013 season at least 22% less crappy! And not a moment too soon. For the Marlins, I mean. Not my own personal well-being, or the well-being of their color commentator who screams “HE’S BAAAAACK!!!!!” when the ball leaves the yard. One man can only take so much Marlins baseball, I fear.
By the way: is anybody else completely enamored with the home run statue thing now? It’s pretty much the best.
