Giancarlo Stanton's awake, huh?

It was a slow start for him in pinstripes. He looked uncomfortable early on.  He looked like he didn't fit in.  He was booed by many of you at the stadium who failed to realize that strikeouts in his career were a big thing.  But now... he has seemed to have found a rhythm.  Good for him...good for us.

Many have reported this, but we'll give the plug on this one:

" It may have been a slow start for the defending National League MVP since his trade to New York from Miami, but with four hits and three RBIs on Sunday vs. the A's, the slugger appears to be on a much-awaited tear. Stanton had a two-run single in the first inning and solo homer into the home bullpen in right-center in the fifth to lead the Yankees to a 6-2 victory over Oakland before 40,538 at Yankee Stadium after rain delayed the Mother's Day contest for two hours and 45 minutes. The Yanks have now won 19 of 22, have captured seven straight series and are tied with Boston at 28-12 for baseball's best record one-quarter of the way through the season.

Stanton's 4-for-4 performance -- he was a triple short of the cycle -- raised his batting average 20 points to .252. Over his last six games, he is 9-for-23 with three home runs and seven RBIs and stands one hit shy of the 1,000th of his career."

And on Mother's Day... where the tough baseball players wear pink to honor mom.  I love that.

Look, Stanton will slump again... that's his nature. But right now, the guy is on fire, and we should be celebrating that.  It's a great thing!

Happy Monday!
