It’s the Fourth of July, which means things are a lot slower on the world wide web today. We’re celebrating this most joyous occasions, or nursing our Canada Day hangovers, in the only manner we know of… A GIF COMPILATION POST.

This is Getting Blanked’s collection of the best GIFs from the first half of the 2013 season. These are all GIFs created in-house by your dear author, Scott Johnson, and news hounds. Thus, there will be no GIFs of Yu Darvish throwing several baseballs at once, or Clint Hurdle chewing 48 pieces of gum with nine different jaws. Just some good old fashioned fancy moving pictures.

We lead with Jonathan Papelbon walking off the mound following what was clearly an energy drink bath. MOAR GIFs after the jump
