Giancarlo Stanton Just Killed The Marlins Scoreboard

As a Braves fan the one team that scares the living shit out of me in the NL East is the Miami Marlins. Yes the Phillies are the champions but they are getting old and have too many injuries. The Nationals are playing great but they are still too young. And the Mets are still just the Mets. The Marlins on the other hand have a good mixture of veterans (Jose Reyes, Hanley Ramirez, Mark Buehrle, Omar Infante, Carlos Zambrano, etc.) and some young guys like 22-year-old Giancarlo Stanton who can absolutely murder the ball. And you know Ozzie will keep things interesting down there in Little Havana. Before the season started I thought the NL East would be a Phillies/Marlins battle. Today, May 22, I think it will come down to the Braves and Marlins. Both organizations have good scouting departments and have sluggers (Stanton and Freddie Freeman) who are on their way to being huge superstars this season. It will be fun to watch.
