Giancarlo Stanton reduces bat to kindling with powerful swing (photo)


Despite being a member of a terrible team over the last few seasons, Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton still has managed to put up some decent power numbers during his career. In 2011 and 2012, Stanton mashed 34 and 37 homers, respectively.

And while his home run totals have taken a bit of dip this season (13), Stanton can still mash it. So long as his bat doesn’t explode into slivered fragments and reduced into smithereens upon contact with the ball.

And look: Stanton swung so hard his right arm turned orange. That ain’t right. He might want to get that checked out.
