Last year we had the Josh Vitters rule: If a minor league player keeps hitting home runs, he'll keep showing up in this space daily. Vitters has just three bombs in the Florida State League, so we're renaming the rule for Stanton, who smacked No. 13 on Monday afternoon. That makes 10 in his past 10 games, with 52 total bases and 22 RBIs. There is not a better offensive prospect in the minor leagues.
