Stanton wants end to Marlins' revolving door

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - With the Miami Marlins' full squad taking the practice field for the first time, Giancarlo Stanton is renewing a too-familiar ritual, greeting the team's numerous newcomers and trying to put names with faces.

He's tired of it.

The Marlins' revolving-door roster has been accompanied by a lot of losing, and Stanton's tired of that, too. The precocious slugger said Thursday the situation must change before he'll consider a long-term offer the Marlins will likely make after this season.

Spring training begins with the Marlins hoping to end a streak of three consecutive last-place finishes in the NL East. Their loss total has increased each of the past three years, and Stanton endured it all.
