Giancarlo Stanton sent聽a high fastball screeching toward the left-field wall on聽a 17-degree angle. It traveled at 111.5 mph and landed in the seats in just 3.8 seconds, an exit so speedy聽that could force Yankees radio voice John Sterling to alter his home run call to something more efficient.
As that ball rocketed into the Yankee Stadium seats, all the crowd could do was gasp, and then roar, and then remember that this team has gone on this epic spring tear without truly seeing the best from its new marquee star.

No one is booing Stanton any more聽– winning at a tidy.941 clip tends to calm even the harshest bleacher critic — but the expectations haven’t changed. Stanton hasn’t quite approached them. Yet.
I wouldn’t say a sense of urgency (regarding a deal for Beckham being finalized before the season), Mara said at the United Way’s Gridiron Gala on Tuesday night. The contract will get done when it’s supposed to be done. That’s a (Giants general manager)聽Dave Gettleman line, and聽I’m going to adopt it. All spring, all summer, as long as Jean Beliveau Jersey it takes.
Asked directly if he believes Beckham will be a Giant long-term, as he has asserted聽repeatedly in the past, Mara said: I hope so.
Trade rumors swirled around Beckham for about a two-week stretch on the heels of the NFL owners meetings when initial comments from Mara聽seemingly opened the door to the possibility the Giants would consider dealing Beckham.
Mara said no player on the roster was untouchable, and then circled back 48 hours later聽in an attempt to squash the debate that had taken over social media, the tabloids and talk radio.

I don’t know how much more clearly I can say it,聽I don’t want (Beckham)聽to be traded, Mara said six weeks ago. I want him to be a Giant. I can’t say it’s a 100% guarantee it will happen. Can’t say that about any player.
