The wait for Giancarlo Stanton’s first home run as a Yankee lasted… oh, two batters.

In his first at bat as a Yankee in the first inning on Monday, Stanton hit a two-run homer off of Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman.

Earlier this week, Yankees radio broadcaster John Sterling teased his home run call for Stanton. The call was “Giancarlo, non si puo stoparlo!,” which roughly translates to “Giancarlo, you cannot be stopped!”

That’s a pretty awful call. Friendly reminder to Sterling – Stanton isn’t Italian. This makes as much sense as shouting a random Russian phrase when Aaron Judge goes yard.

Thankfully for Yankees fans, Stanton is not a pretty awful player, and Sterling will likely change his call when he realizes how awful it is.
