Stanton: Frustration level 'highest ever' with Marlins in last place

Giancarlo Stanton is getting pretty sick of losing.

Though the slugger is off to a respectable individual start to the season, slashing .263/.339/.533 with 11 home runs in 40 games, the same can't be said of his Miami Marlins, who are already 11 games back in the NL East at 14-26.

Those 26 losses are contributing to a level of frustration Stanton's never experienced before.

"It's probably the highest ever," Stanton told the Miami Herald's Clark Spencer. "It's higher than me being the worst player on the field for a month, the worst player in the big leagues for a month, last year."

From May 15 to June 15 last season, Stanton endured one of the most miserable stretches of his career, slashing a paltry .120/.214/.240 and amassing 37 strikeouts in 75 at-bats during the span.

Another possible factor in Stanton's frustration may be the ongoing saga behind the potential sale of the team, though that likely doesn't compare to the Marlins finding themselves behind the injury-depleted New York Mets and the rebuilding Philadelphia Phillies in the division.

"Surprised? Yes," Stanton said. "No one expected it to be like this."
