Barreling It with Giancarlo Stanton

Hello and welcome to another episode of Barreling It with Giancarlo Stanton. Alright Giancarlo, ready to play?

Here’s the question. It’s the top of the 6th inning. You’re down two runs. There’s a man on and you’re in a 2-0 count. Patrick Corbin throws you a 93 MPH fastball down the middle. What do you do?


GS: “I think the answer is Barrel It.”


That is correct. Join us next time for another episode of Barreling It with Giancarlo Stanton.

    They say baseball is a team sport. The problem is, the Marlins only need one player on their team. There’s no “I” in team, but there is a Giancarlo Stanton.

      There’s no “I” in Teamosil, at least not where you think.

        Sadly, Teamocil has been discontinued. The sense of wellness it created in relationships was merely the first sign of complete pituitary shutdown.

      It must’ve been the $100 question given the unmarked chart next to Stanton. They often don’t ask the “final answer” question when the answer is so obvious.
