I think Stanton will be useful. Just getting way from the atrocious Yankees defense will help him. His raw numbers aren't that bad. I know it's a small sample size (14 innings with the Yankees) but he struck out 12 and only gave up 1 HR. He gave up a lot of hits (17) but how much of that was the Yankees' D? Plus, going to the sever Pitcher's Park in Washington will help him.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
