  1. That is some incredible arm placement. I’m glad “stroking a dongpiece” is something that people write.

  2. Another post about the Blue Jays, Carson? Good lord, man.

    I’ve certainly noticed Edwin’s bat flip this season, it’s a beauty, but this T-Rex business is news to me. And quite accurate, actually.

  3. Nickname seeks player:

    Palsied T-Rex

  4. He’s been doing it all season as some sort of inside joke between him and Bautista

  5. The joke being people actually thinking Toronto has a shot at the post season.

  6. I’m mildly amused beyond all measure.

  7. “Zing!” said the Pirates fan in an ironic fashion.

  8. Many basketball players do the palsied wrist thing when they make a three-pointer. They think it’s a cool pose or something.

  9. I like this “Ross.” I think he should post here.

  10. Shades of Jeffrey “One Flap Down” Leonard!

  11. I always thought he was doing a busted wing.

  12. That was my first thought as well, though Penitentiary Face raised his left arm, thus completely rendering the aesthetic comparison moot.

  13. The intro sequence to Unsolved Mysteries was much better. Three sentences appeared in a white simple font over a black screen as an overly serious narrator read them. The first sentence, “This program is about unsolved mysteries.”, surely disappointed the 0.01% of the viewership who was expecting a show titled Unsolved Mysteries to be a drama centered around the day to day affairs of scantily clad Los Angeles County lifeguards.

  14. I’ve been loving this all year, it’s just what he does. I do it now every time I hit a home run in house league. Just submit to the palsy

  15. A home run — that should the last time anyone refers to that thing as anything but a “dongpiece.”

    Comment by Dayn Perry — June 27, 2012 @ 10:16 pm

  16. Agreed. I want to see straight-faced news reporters talk about who stroked a dongpiece in the World Series.

  17. As a team, nobody else watches home runs for longer or flips their bats higher than the Jays. Swagger, they have it.

  18. If a homer is a dongpiece, what anatomical words can be used for other baseball plays?

    Comment by Big Jgke — June 28, 2012 @ 11:56 am

  19. May I suggest Edwin Encarnacion?

    Comment by Grady — June 28, 2012 @ 12:55 pm

  20. I believe he is sinaling a left turn

  21. I just took a ride on the ROFLcopter.

    Palsied T-rex…..so good.

    Comment by WinTwins — June 28, 2012 @ 5:47 pm

  22. Its the unrequited high five pose.

  23. The man’s on pace to 50 dongpieces so as far as I’m concerned he can look as queer as he wants to doing it.

    Off topic: EE on pace to 50, Bautista no pace to 56 dongpieces. When’s the last time a team had (2) 50 dongpiecers?

    Comment by Razor — June 28, 2012 @ 11:40 pm

  24. That’s the only way we score runs.

    Comment by Matty Brown — June 29, 2012 @ 1:50 am

  25. Palsied T-Rex is also my favorite JPop group.

    Comment by Matt McWax — June 30, 2012 @ 1:50 am

  26. This is precisely why you must drop it like it’s hot – in the event it may actually be hot.

  27. Edwin also does his home run trot as if he is on a NASCAR track with a steep bank. Perhaps the palsied T-Rex is how he tries to maintain balance as he leans into the corners?
