Miami Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton Gets Traded to Devo for ESPN The Magazine's Music Issue
MLBers Justin Upton, Evan Longoria, Brandon Phillips, Giancarlo Stanton, and Shane Victorino covering Devo's Freedom of Choice.
But trading the last star in the Marlins' clubhouse to a New Wave art-punk band from Akron, Ohio that's best known for singing "Whip It" while wearing bright-red, dog dish-shaped "energy domes" on their heads?

Yeah, it would've been a new embarrassingly absurd low for the organization. But luckily, the deal didn't quite go down that way, despite the photo evidence.
The pics showing Stanton and a bunch of other MLBers covering Devo's Freedom of Choice is just one in a series set to appear in ESPN The Magazine's Music Issue starring big-time athletes recreating famous album jackets.
OK. So Stanton's gotta be a big fan of Mark Mothersbaugh and crew, right?
"I didn't even know Devo sang 'Whip It,'" Stanton tells ESPN. "I just thought the hats and outfits would be funny."
