Gammons: Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton solely focused on ‘winning philosophy’ | News

“I can deal with losing as long as one is trying to win,” Stanton said. “If you’re losing and you’re not trying to win, that is not fair. I play to have fun, I play to win, I play for my teammates.

“Then to say it’s not about money, what is the motivation? Where is that winning philosophy? How many times do you have to be told something and have it change before you realize what’s going on? It’s like the boy who cried wolf.

“There’s nothing I can do. I’m not going to change the way I work out in the offseason and prepare. I’m not going to change the way I approach the game. I’m not going to change the way I play every day.”
