Pleasure GIF: Gregory Polanco Homering So Much Today

GP GIF

According to the actual “rules” of “baseball,” any single home run technically only produces a quantity of runs equal to the number of players already on base plus one. According to that part of the human body, however, responsible for the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine into the brain, certain home runs are manifestly worth more, others less, in terms of aesthetic value.

This true truth having been established, one might readily conclude that, owing to how his whole life is in front of him and to how his levers are longer than a Terrence Malick film, that Gregory Polanco’s home run this afternoon against the Yankees’ David Phelps is not unlike a grand slam or maybe two grand slams.

That ball does not go where that swing leads one to believe that ball will go.

That could well have been scored as an iffb home run

Yeah, the swing is pretty, but the ball trajectory looks like a high popup, maybe foul.

Where did it end up?

Cleared RF by about 5 feet, much to the chagrin of Ichiro Suzuki and his poorly timed wall collision.
