Stanton looked comfortable in his first taste of postseason action. He hit a moonshot off of A’s closer Blake Treinen to tack on an insurance run in the New York’s Wild Card win. Stanton ran hot and cold for most of the regular season, but he finished 6th in AL in home runs. He is still one of the sport’s most prolific power hitters who is capable of carrying a lineup for weeks. The spotlight will be on Stanton and the rest of the young Bombers as they seek to win the franchise’s 28th World Series championship.
