WATCH: All of Giancarlo Stanton's 2014 homers added up

All things considered, the 2014 Miami Marlins were a bit of a surprise. Sure, they were never truly a playoff contender — especially after Jose Fernandez tore his UCL in mid-May and needed Tommy John surgery — but they hung around .500 for much of the season.
