Giancarlo Stanton is playing like a man on fire. He’s homered five times in the last six games, and pretty much every round-tripper has been pivotal to a Yankees victory. By no coincidence, the team has also won seven in a row to regain its spot atop the AL Wild Card standings, and each vicious Stanton cut feels like it could result in the baseball soaring a long, long way. On the season, he’s now hitting .278/.359/.527 with 35 homers and a 141 wRC+.
