Giancarlo Stanton suffers hamstring injury

        Giancarlo Stanton left tonight's game with a hamstring injury. If the pained expression on his face was indicative of the seriousness of the injury, the Marlins could be without their slugger for a significant period.

        Stanton grimaced after crossing the bag at first, reached for his right hamstring, hopped twice on one leg, and tumbled to the ground after trying to beat out a nubber in the 10th inning. The Marlins later announced that Stanton had a strained right hamstring.

        The timing is never good for the Marlins when Stanton is out. But the latest setback with their top player comes just when it looked like he had re-discovered his home run stroke. Now he's out indefinitely.

Without Stanton interest in the team and lineup productivity goes from severely lacking to non-existant. Ladies and Gentlemen your 2013 Miami Marlins.

On another note, the Marlins pitch and innings limit on Fernandez is selfish to the bullpen who may see their career's killed due to exhaustion. Then again I doubt any of them are in the organization's long term plans, well maybe Cishek.
