DETROIT -- What you see when Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton steps to the plate is a hulking 6-foot-6 and 245-pound star, blessed with the combination of power, speed and athleticism that makes scouts eyes water. His natural attributes are only fortified by the insatiable work ethic that has allowed the 26-year-old slugger to emerge as one of the top young talents in the game -- and to cash in on a historic 13-year, $325 million payday in 2014.But for all of Stantons preternatural gifts and talent, he is not impervious to struggles, and never was that more apparent than during a protracted stretch in the first few months of this season. From May 1 through June 7 -- a span of 27 games, Stanton was hitting .149 (14-for-94), the worst mark among qualified hitters in the majors during that period, according to ESPN Stats & Information.During this time he leaned on someone within his own dugout for advice -- Barry Bonds. Who better to ask than the all-time home run leader, in his inaugural stint as the Marlins hitting coach?Hes like a technician; hell get as technical as you can understand or as simple as you need, Stanton told ESPN.com, laughing when asked which he preferred. Id say we grew together with that. Now, I want every last bit of knowledge -- which he knows some may not understand -- but I wanna be as far into it as I can.Bonds also chuckles when asked about his tacticians approach, and how that is received within a clubhouse that has myriad different learning styles and personalities.I just look at it this way: You either look at it right, or you like it wrong, Bonds said. Thats their choice. Thats the bottom line.That choice was an easy one for Stanton, and one for which he is already reaping rewards.Stanton offered up an Exhibit A in the case that he has put a prolonged slump behind him: the 86-mph slider he sent 441 feet on a rope to center field in the second inning of last Tuesdays loss to the Detroit Tigers. The line drive left his bat with a 17-degree launch angle at a blistering 115 mph.According to ESPN Stats & Info, thats almost 10 degrees lower and five miles per hour faster than the average home run of 440 feet or more hit by major league players this season (26.1 degrees; 110 mph).Tigers catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia just shook his head when recalling the hit the next morning. Thats the sort of feat he witnessed every day while teammates with Stanton in Miami.That wasnt even one of his most impressive, Saltalamacchia told ESPN.com. Hes so strong and so big. I wish I had that. Id never have to pull the ball. Id just have to be making contact and Id be hitting home runs.Stanton is now showing tangible signs of escaping the abyss, and the Tigers learned the hard way that his bat is heating up. Since June 8, Stanton is batting .261 with 3 HRs and 14 RBIs.Its nice to see him getting going again, Marlins manager Don Mattingly, one of the most prolific hitters of his own generation, said following Tuesdays game. Obviously, hes been swinging better for a while now and it seems like the way he was swinging earlier in the year is kind of behind us.Stanton is thrilled about that after having to answer for his struggles for months while he was himself trying to figure out exactly what was wrong. People tend to forget that even the biggest bats in the league can go dormant. Its not always simple to figure out. But, by the second week of June, Stanton started to gain some clarity about his swing. Making those adjustments took time, however, and it was not a seamless transition.Id say around the West Coast trip I started to get a grasp of everything going wrong, Stanton said. Then I had to refine it because the muscle memory, even if its negative, its gonna stick with you. Thats what you practice, thats what you master, even though you know it may not be the right way of doing it. You have to retrain it and still be out there playing every night, too. Thats the biggest juggle.Stanton isnt the only one trying to maintain a juggling act; Bonds is doing the same as he learns to handle his new responsibilities as a coach after playing more than two decades in the majors. Hes having fun, though, and enjoys the daily grind of being back in the game. And what he enjoys most is working with young players like Stanton.Hes in that position where he has the potential to be best home run hitter -- his natural power, his natural ability ... thats what I like, Bonds said. He can be the [Miguel] Cabrera of the young age to now. I like that. Bryce Harper and all those guys. Thats whats fun to see. Thats what I like to see in those younger guys. You see yourself in those guys. You think, looking back, like, wow, I remember those days. Hes learning and look at that talent. Hes fast, he can swing the bat good, hes got pop, theres so many good things that you can see, which is nice, because thats what I like to reminisce about.Stanton said he and Bonds would get entrenched in long conversations during that slump -- more technical than philosophical -- and just space out to everyone and everything else in the clubhouse while the two tried to make things right.It was a lot mechanical. Its not in his head, Bonds said, brushing off the suggestion. Hes got a lot of confidence. Hes a confident person. It was a lot of mechanical and hes making those adjustments.Because of Stantons star status, his history of production and the heft behind his contract, his early-season struggles were scrutinized from just about every angle.His batting average against both right-handed (.223) and left-handed (.245) pitching has dropped significantly from his career averages (.261 vs. RHP; .286 vs. LHP).Some theorized that he has a blind spot that causes him to lose the ball as it approaches the plate. Others felt there may be a psychological component to his dropoff, stemming from his harrowing injury, when he suffered multiple facial fractures, dental damage and a facial laceration after getting hit by a pitch in the face by Milwaukees Mike Fiers in September 2014.Stanton denied the injury got in his head (I have a lot of years left in the league; if Im going to be worried about that, for a year, or even a month, its not going to go well, he said) but admitted that he felt pitchers were initially trying to attack him differently when he returned in 2015, potentially trying to exploit any fear he may have harbored of getting beaned again.I noticed they tried to go up and in when I came back from the face, Stanton said. In the first bit of this [recent] bad stretch, guys came up and in and just because of how bad I was playing, they started doing that more thinking that thats why [opponents] were having success.But, as he explained, his hand injury in June 2015 -- a hamate bone fracture in his left hand -- was much tougher to come back from. Doctors told him that it was some of the worst bleeding and swelling they had ever seen. His finger tendons were messed up. It took a long time to regain his grip. What began in June as a four-week injury eventually lingered until December.I was in the five percent that go wrong, in that sense, Stanton said.Stanton wont deny that the unfortunate slew of injuries have had an impact on him the past few seasons, but he also wont chalk up his recent slump to that, either. Now that is in that past, hes not too interested in dwelling on it.What he will say is that the tough spell endured this year gave him a new appreciation for his hitting coach and helped forge a strong relationship. Stanton isnt exactly the type to get star-struck, but he knows the novelty is real. Friends and family members ask what Bonds is like. Sometimes they arent expecting the answer he gives them.What surprises people?Id say how much he cares, Stanton said. He has the image, or whatever you want to call it, of being nonchalant or however you, whatever people want to put it [as], but he cares a lot. Once he gets to know you to help you, he wants you to do the best.Bonds bristles at the notion that the best athletes in any sport often fail at coaching because they have such a different grasp on the game. He thinks that is unbelievably false. He feels he has plenty of insight to provide.He doesnt expect Stanton to be Barry Bonds 2.0. Hell be happy if he helps to make him better.I dont expect any player to be me, he said. I expect them to be who they are. And the best they can be. And if that happens to be better than me ... God bless them. Thats what you do as a coach. You want them to be the best they can be. And if that happens to be better than me, great. Im fine with that. Luis Aparicio Jersey .

LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Wisconsins work on the glass has earned the Badgers a shot at the Mau Invitational title.Ethan Happ had 19 points and 15 rebounds, Bronson Koenig scored 20 points and No. 16 Wisconsin overwhelmed Georgetown on the boards in a 73-57 win Tuesday.The Badgers had a 19-1 advantage on offensive rebounds, leading to 20 second-chance points, and a 50-21 edge overall.I dont think were where we need to be or can be anywhere near that yet, Wisconsin coach Greg Gard said. But tonight was definitely a step in the right direction and obviously their rebounding shows the effort part of that, which has always been there.Wisconsin (4-1) used a short burst out of halftime to take control and stayed there behind the inside-out game of Happ and Koenig.The Badgers went 5 for 22 from 3-point range but made up for it inside, outscoring the Hoyas 38-16 in the paint and cleaning up nearly everything that came off the rim.The victory put Wisconsin in Wednesday nights championship game against No. 4 North Carolina, a 107-75 winner over Oklahoma State.I thought everybody did a good job of working hard and trying to get position and just going to the glass every single time, whether they thought it was a make or a miss, everyone went to the glass, Koenig said.Georgetown (2-3) held its own through the first half despite not shooting particularly well. The Hoyas never found their touch in the second half and had no answer for Wisconsins push after the break.LJ Peak led Georgetown with 18 points and Rodney Pryor had 14.We have to get some guys that understtand that its not just about points and minutes, and care about all aspects of the game, Hoyas coach John Thompson III said.ddddddddddddNeither team shot very well in the first half, except for Koenig and Pryor.Koenig was looking for his shot early, scoring eight quick points. He had 14 at halftime on 5-of-10 shooting to help the Badgers to a 32-29 lead.Pryor, who had 26 points against Oregon, scored 11 on 4-of-8 shooting, including 3 of 5 from beyond the 3-point arc.Wisconsin opened the second half with a brief burst and Koenig banked one in from nearly straight on, pushing its lead to 44-34.The Badgers began to stretch the lead from there, extending it to 53-39 on Charles Thomas putback midway through.Georgetown never made up the difference.They dont beat themselves, Thompson said. You have to go out and find a way to beat them.BIG PICTUREThe Badgers have bounced back nicely from a loss to Creighton with two wins in Maui and can cap it off with the title on Wednesday.The Hoyas put up a fight early, but have work to do if theyre going to compete with teams as talented as Wisconsin.POLL IMPLICATIONSUnless the Badgers get blown out in the title game, their run in Maui should move them up a notch or two in next weeks poll.UP NEXTWisconsin will face the winner between No. 4 North Carolina and Oklahoma State in Wednesdays championship game.Georgetown faces the North Carolina-Oklahoma State loser in the third-place game.
