#FishStripes: Childhood Days and Lil' Jose

Giancarlo Stanton may have been the man in the month of May (and we'll certainly talk about him), but Logan Morrison shares some childhood photos on Twitter.

I'm sure that all you readers out there have some photos from your childhood that are hidden somewhere in a dark, desolate place. Now, imagine voluntarily posting some of those pictures on Twitter. That's what Logan Morrison did.

Here's our Tweet of the Week:

He may have rocked the trophy, but the hair might be second-rate. (Don't tell him I said that.)

Then...there's this one. Contain your laughter, please.

Now we know where LoMo got his quick feet. Evidently ballet shoes were also attractive on guys back then.

LoMo's attire back then was not hot, but Giancarlo's bat has been. In fact, he has hit just as many home runs in the month of May as the entire San Francisco Giants team. His 11th of the month from last Monday night is our Play of the Week:

Stanton was named Player of the Month and has had many interviews all over sports networks, including this one with NBC Sports Network.

Stanton and his teammates had to deal with a little bit of rain, which soaked much of Marlins Park prior to Wednesday night's contest against the Nationals:

We also have a couple pictures that Miami Herald writer Manny Navarro took before the water was cleaned up:

Here's a shot of the dugout and in the background, Hanley Ramirez is just chillin'.

The forecast for South Florida does have rain in it as the Fish are home for series against the Braves and Rays, so hopefully the roof can stay closed and the rain stays out.

The rain got the Marlins fans soaked in Philly this weekend including one of the "smallest" of Marlins Nation, Lil' Jose. Lil' Jose is obviously based off of Marlins shortstop Jose Reyes and Lil' Jose is quickly gaining attention. Here's he and Lil' Giancarlo at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday:

FS Marlins tracks him down while in the City of Brotherly Love (click on the link in Frisaro's tweet):

Make sure to catch Lil' Jose where ever the Marlins go for the rest of the season:
