After a one week hiatus, the sports blogosphere’s original ‘GIFs of the week’ post has returned. It’s baseball, irreverence, and bootleg video capture software coming together for the greater good of the internet. We lead this week’s instalment with a celebration of Prince Fielder flipping his bat like a BAWSE, because that’s how we do.

Here are the rest of the GIFs that made us gasp, guffaw, and groan over the past week.
