This Week's Sports Illustrated Cover...Giancarlo Stanton

Miami Marlins slugging outfielder Giancarlo Stanton graces the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated.

Stanton is SI's first painted athlete on the magazine's cover.

The magazine has been known to paint over athletes and models in past pages, including this year...

Stanton is coming off a season ending beaning in September, and the Miami Marlins hope he takes off right were he left off, smashing home runs and making the Marlins fun to watch.

I can't wait until April 4th, when Stanton and the Marlins come to Bragan Field  to play the hometown Jacksonville Suns in the last exhibition game before the 2015 big league season.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to see Stanton smack two home runs for the Suns in 2010, and we have watched many Suns players like Christian Yelich come through our city on their way to the show.

Well, time to go find this week's SI.

Play Ball!
