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.

Listen, I know catching a knuckleball isn’t the easiest thing to do. And I sure as hell couldn’t do it. So I do what I do best. Make GIFs of those who can’t either.

Alright I lied, 10 GIFs

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.

All GIFs will be below the jump.

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.

It’s a sure sign you’ve lost the plot when a shot at catching a home run ball takes precedence over celebrating the actual home run. Take, for instance, Edwin Encarnacion’s home run in the bottom of the third inning last night versus Baltimore. A fan bro seated in the first row beyond the left centerfield fence narrowly missed catching Encarnacion home run ball 16/42.

What we’ve got here is failure to celebrate. Some men, they just can’t catch. So you get what we had here last night — which is the way he wants it.

Well, he gets it.

And I don’t like it anymore than you.

Let’s take a look from a closer angle…

We all know a “no-doubter” when we see one hit. There is, as a rule, “no doubt” it will leave the yard. Pretty simple, really.

ESPN’s Home Run Tracker classifies home runs three different ways: Just Enough, Plenty, and No Doubters. No doubters are balls which “cleared the fence by at least 20 vertical feet AND landed at least 50 feet past the fence.” by their in-house definition. The really deep blasts, they sexily go on to note.

Jose Bautista hit a No Doubt home run off Jeff Niemann on Tuesday night. At 449 estimated feet, it travelled farther than any Blue Jays tater this season. As soon as it left the bat, it was clearly gone.

The scene: Casey Janssen sits down Jarrod Saltalamacchia on a called third strike for the second out of the ninth inning. One female Blue Jays fan in attendance decides she’s had enough of a visiting Red Sox fan, who probably spent most of the evening reminding those around him of his beloved team’s triumphs of 2004, 2007 and Monday night. Our protagonist in the stands turns to the undoubtedly insufferable Red Sox fan seated behind her to um, rub it in.
