Here’s something that ought to fire up the free Anthony Gose set. Fair enough, as it’s rather fucking awesome. Gose stole home for his fourth steal of the season in the first inning of the Bisons’ game versus Norfolk on Tuesday.
Gose pulls this off while none other than the 2012 Baltimore Orioles Opening Day starter, Jake Arrieta, is on the mound. The speedy outfielder has been caught stealing in four out of eight attempts in Triple-A thus far in 2013. Not that swiping home makes his .250/.352/.352 triple slash line any more palatable, but y’know, it’s still totally fucking NAILS.
Yeah, that Jose Reyes injury was shitty to watch, but his replacement is quickly becoming a fan favorite ‘round these parts. Munenori Kawasaki may not stay on the Jays roster for long, so we should cherish his presence while we can. Whether it’s his awesome awkwardness, his bat, or the bow, here’s why you gotta love Munenori Kawasaki.
1. The extended “Bow Lo Viste”. Gotta love how long he keeps it up for
Pardon me, but Don Kelly has no business making this catch. A double from Prince Fielder and a home run off the bat of Alex Avila have the Tigers up 2-0 early in the second, so yeah, maybe one of those afternoons. Stay tuned.
Hey what’s going on everybody, Scott Johnson here, and it’s an honor to join the DJF family for some Jays GIF action tonight. I’ll be posting GIFs throughout the game, whether it be an on the field play, or dumb shit fans are doing. If I missed a moment that you want GIF’d, be sure to send me a tweet over at @ScottJohnson48, and I’ll try my best to get it on here. Other than that, have a great time, and enjoy the game. Should be starting around 7pm ET.
The R.A. Dickey press conference has come and gone. I’m still buzzing from the high induced by the Dickster’s personality and I’m sure those actually in attendance will also be too smitten to put their thoughts on the matter into proper words.
Things went pretty much as expected and the only thing that happened that wasn’t totally predicted was Dickey’s struggle to put on, unbutton, and re-button a Blue Jays jersey for the first time. I’m sure this isn’t a bad omen, you guys.
The moment captured in the hilariously popular medium of animated image follows the jump.
