While Aaron Judge has gotten all the headlines this season, Stanton has very quietly hit 50 homers so far this year. He has a chance of hitting 60 & passing Maris' mark.
His 17 home runs in Aug. ties the NL mark held by Sammy Sosa (2001) & Willie Mays (1965).
The MLB record for Aug. is 18 (Rudy York - 1937) in the AL.

Why are teams still pitching to him? When Bonds only hit 45 for the entire season he was walked over 200 times. Stanton has walked only 65 times for the season. Stanton has no one hitting behind him.

Perhaps because unlike Bonds he strikes out a lot.

I always thought that Bonds had such a high walk total because the opposing pitchers considered Bonds to be a jerk and didn't want to make him look good.

A rainy day cannot stop Stanton's 51st homer in the 1st inning! Watch the @Marlins take on the Nationals live now on FOX Sports Florida! pic.twitter.com/H3iw20vJjh

Giancarlo Stanton stepped into the batter's box Tuesday night, looked out to the mound, and did not see Max Scherzer - much to his delight.

Unfortunately for Edwin Jackson, he drew the short straw in the Washington Nationals clubhouse and had to pitch to the red-hot Miami Marlins slugger. Stanton wasted little time facing Jackson, as he absolutely tattooed a pitch in the top of the first inning some 440 feet into the rainy Washington night for his 51st home run of the season - and 18th in the month of August.

Stanton's blast tied Rudy York's record for the most homers in the month of August. York's achievement has stood alone since 1937, while he was a rookie with the Detroit Tigers.

Incredibly, Stanton has now hit 30 of his 51 home runs in his last 48 games played.

#Marlins Giancarlo Stanton has hit 30 home runs in 48 games beginning July 5. Only 16 other players in #MLB have hit 30 ALL SEASON.

If Stanton hits another two homers this month he will tie Sammy Sosa's record for long balls in a single month, set in June of 1998.

As he attempts to break records, Giancarlo Stanton is breaking cameras.
The Miami Marlins slugger added another home run to his chase for the single-season record, clobbering his 53rd long ball of the season to opposite field on Monday, while cracking an unlucky camera in the process. The camera crew then needed to swap the lens after the homer rendered it useless.

Stanton now sits 20 home runs behind Barry Bonds' tally of 73, set in 2001.

ATLANTA -- Giancarlo Stanton hit his major-league-leading 54th home run of the season in the Miami Marlins6-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves.
After being given a day off on Friday, Stanton hit the homer off rookie left-hander Max Fried in the first inning on Saturday night. The ball would have traveled 456 feet unimpeded, according to MLB Statcast, and landed deep into the left-center seats.


Stanton's 54 homers are the same number that Mark McGwire had through this date in 1999 and the same number Sammy Sosa had through this date in 2001, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.


Stanton has six homers against the Braves this season. He now has 15 more homers than Yankees rookie Aaron Judge and Oakland's Khris Davis, who were tied for second.
The previous Marlins record was 42 homers by Gary Sheffield in 1996.

Watch out, pitchers. Giancarlo Stanton's doing that home run thing again.
The Miami Marlins slugger snapped a six-game home run drought in a big way Monday, launching a 455-foot line-drive blast off the MetsMatt Harvey for his league-leading 55th homer of 2017.
Stanton is now on pace to finish the season with 59 home runs, according toMLB.com's Patrick Pinak. That would represent the highest single-season total since Ryan Howard slugged 58 for the Phillies in 2006.
Giancarlo is back, and not a moment too soon. The chase is back on!Through 147 games:Ruth: 56Maris: 56STANTON: 55@Marlins

Roger Maris' 61 home runs are in sight, and Giancarlo Stanton can probably taste it.

The Miami Marlins slugger belted his 56th home run of the season Wednesday against the New York Mets and moved within five of Maris' mark, which stood as the single-season record for 37 years until it was broken in controversial fashion by both Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa in 1998.

Barry Bonds holds the all-time record for home runs in a single season with 73, although his record is also surrounding by controversy.

Stanton is the first player to hit 56 in a season since Ryan Howard hit 58 in 2006.

Where does this rank as far as all-time greatest homer seasons? Certainly ahead of Bonds and some of those guys during the steroid era when we got desensitized to guys chasing 60 and 70.

Giancarlo Stanton can smell 60.

The Miami Marlins outfielder absolutely clobbered Arizona Diamondbacks starter Taijuan Walker's 76-mph curveball in the fourth inning Saturday, sending it 419 feet and into the left-field seats at Chase Stadium.

Stanton's 57th home run now leaves him just four shy of Roger Maris' tally of 61, set in 1961, which stood as the single-season record for nearly four decades until it was broken in 1998 by both Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire before Barry Bonds hit 73 in 2001.

Very reminiscent of Maris in 61.  Of course I thought Mickey would hit 62 next season but it wasn't meant to be. 

Stanton now has 59 with 3 games left.

I think we're seeing the greatest home run season since Maris, honestly.  I don't get too bogged down in the steroid shit, whatever they did they did, but it became so commonplace for guys to chase 60 in those few years that we became desensitized to it and it wasn't very special anymore.  This season feels a bit different.  And yes, homers are up again, but offense was way up in the '30s too and no one did this.

Stop it please his home run season it is good but it ain't close to Bonds 2001 that was must see baseball and the fact that Bonds was by far a better hitter than Giancarlo could ever dream to be. 
You act as if these baseball players today aren't on some new stuff that the media doesn't know about

I still view Roger Maris and Hank Aaron as holding their various home run records. JMo. One thing about Stanton - they are all tape measure shots.  Never seen one that barely made it over the fence. Also admire him for being able to come back from that horrible injury.
