11:25 AM ET 04.13 | One of Charlie Manuel's favorite shows is Giancarlo Stanton's batting practice. The Phillies manager first noticed it one afternoon at Dolphins Stadium, where the Marlins previously called home. Manuel loves hitting. Stanton makes him woozy. "He is a guy in their lineup that we fear the most," Manuel said Friday, before a 3-1 victory. Then, Stanton was not in Miami's lineup. He was scratched shortly before first pitch with a sore left shoulder. Stanton told reporters he will not play Saturday and could sit Sunday, too. He will have an MRI Saturday to determine the extent of the injury.

If Stanton is out for a week or longer the Marlins will be in trouble. They might go another week without a win

Just got back from playing golf. On my way to poker evening. I can think of one thing that would make it the perfect Saturday trifecta, but since I will not be home until 12:30 am, I rate my chances...

...from slim to none.

A good Saturday to you all!

It's going to be pretty easy to pitch around Stanton this year.
