"(Giancarlo) Stanton has 'Herman Munster power,' according to an Arizona Diamondbacks scouting report on the Marlins slugger. 'We heard that originally from Mark Weidemaier, our advanced scout. He puts little tidbits in our advanced reports for us, and Stanton is included amongst the Herman Munster power guys in the league so far,' Diamondbacks third base coach Matt Williams said before Saturday's game. Williams and Arizona bench coach Alan Trammell both said that's the first time they've heard of the old TV character from The Munsters, based on the Frankenstein monster-like role played by the late Fred Gwynne, used as a reference in a professional scouting report. 'You see great speed, plus arm, all of that stuff, but never Herman Munster (power), Williams said. 'Some guys have light-tower power, but that's nothing compared to Herman Munster power.'" - Sportswriter Joe Capozzi in The Palm Beach Post (06/11/2011, 'Diamondbacks scouts say Florida Marlins slugger Mike Stanton has "Munster" power', Alan Trammell )
