Admiring Juan Francisco’s Home Run

In case you missed it — and I sincerely doubt that’s possible — Juan Francisco hit a really long home run last night against the Cubs. Compagno Cistulli already detailed the home run for us, as well as some stuff about emotions or aesthetics or something.

That’s one way to admire Francisco’s moonshot. Joey Votto and Jay Bruce present another:

Here’s how I imagine this scene playing out:

BRUCE: Hey Joey, did you see that home run Juan hit?

VOTTO: Yeah.

BRUCE: That one over there?

VOTTO: Yeah.

BRUCE: That was awesome.

VOTTO: Yeah.

Still, I can’t help but feel like something is missing, in a hastily photoshopped manner…

Yeah. That’s it.

I think you need Mark Reynolds in the picture.
