Stanton HR total affected by home park
May, 10, 2012

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is surely one of the preeminent power hitters in the game, having mashed 56 home runs in his first two big league seasons in fewer than 1,000 plate appearances. Stanton's power should occur regardless of ballpark and pitcher, and while ongoing knee soreness has surely hampered him so far in 2012, he is on pace for 31 home runs. Perhaps we expected more, but as anyone that owns Albert Pujols will tell you, don't complain about "only" 31 home runs.
