Stanton scratched from Friday's lineup with sore left shoulder

Marlins All-Star right fielder Giancarlo Stanton was scratched from Friday night's lineup with a sore left shoulder about an hour before first pitch.

It's the first time this season Stanton hasn't been in the lineup. Stanton, who took batting practice with his teammates, was replaced in right field by Austin Kearns. 

Manager Mike Redmond moved his 4-5-6 hitters -- Placido Polanco, Justin Ruggiano and Greg Dobbs -- up a spot in the batting order and slotted Kearns sixth.

Stanton is just in a holding pattern.


Whats he holding? Not his own

Camera Mike

Is it too mean to wish Loria and Samson get shipped off to North Korea to be used as guinea pigs for them to test their biological and chemical weapons?

Fire away

Just have them executed at dawn
