NBC SportsTalk: One-on-one with Giancarlo Stanton

1 Comment

There are few things in this game more majestic than a Giancarlo Stanton home run, but he’s also a pretty good interview.

Here’s Stanton’s appearance on NBC SportsTalk last night, where he talks about his incredible 12-homer month of May and what it’s like to play for Ozzie Guillen.

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Texas Rangers have signed free agent righty Chris Martin to two-year, $4 million deal.

Martin pitched for the Nippon Ham Fighters for the past two seasons, posting 1.12 ERA in 88 relief innings with excellent strikeout and walk rates. Martin pitched 40 games in the bigs, appearing with the Rockies in 2014 and the Yankees in 2015 with some pretty underwhelming results.

He’s tall — 6’8″ — and tall guys sometimes take a long time to put it all together. Maybe he finally put it all together. The Rangers obviously think he has.
