7th-10th/11-13: West Coast Trip to Cali

Opponent: San Francisco Giants & Los Angeles Dodgers

Giancarlo Stanton and the Miami Marlins always take solace in making their annual west coast trips to San Francisco and Los Angeles. Stanton has always raked on these trips and usually has a large number of family in friends in attendance in both venues. Conveniently enough, these two teams are also two players for Stanton if he hits the trade market.

This road trip will mark the first chance to face National League contenders outside of their division. They only play these two teams two different times throughout the series, so each game head-to-head counts a bit more if the Marlins want to contend next season.

22nd-24th: Cruz vs Cruz?

Opponent: Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles make their Spring Training home in the Ft. Lauderdale area and will be back near that area for this series. The O’s have been a major surprise this season, running away with the usually competitive American League East.

This series would pit two of the premier power hitters in baseball against each other. Giancarlo Stanton versus Nelson Cruz. The two have been toe-to-toe in the Major League home run race in 2014. Cruz currently has 39 home runs and Stanton has 36 on the season.
