Speculate all want about trying to acquire Giancarlo Stanton, if you look at this guy, we’ve already got a piece of the future in place. He throws in the mid-90 s and has a great slider. This year, in April thus far, he has been routinely dominant.  He’s won 4 games and lost none.  He’s accrued 32 Ks in 29 IPs and he has only walked 9 batters.  He’s posted a .93 ERA and a .66 WHIP.  He is averaging over 7 innings pitched per start.  To put some perspective on this, consider that he is tied for the National League lead in wins, WHIP, and Innings Pitched.  He is second in ERA. Game-by-Game, he has allowed only 3 earned runs.  He has allowed only 8 hits (including only 1 HR).  He has thrown only 416 total pitches. Last week, he won a duel against one of the premier pitchers in the major leagues, Stephen Strausburg.  He displayed his Ace-Mentality after Daniel Murphy committed an error on a potential double-play ball. Harvey beared down, struck out Kurt Suzuki, then got Roger Bernad...
