Ceremonial First GIF: Jose Fernandez

JF 1 Cowgill

Miami right-hander and 20-year-old Cuban emigre Jose Fernandez has, just seconds before the composition of these very words, finished his first inning as a major-league pitcher, retiring the New York Mets on three consecutive fly-ball outs (box).

And by virtue of this post, reader, you will be able to tell your grandchildren when you’re much older and much less useful than right now: “I was there, a long time ago, when Carson Cistulli made the first GIF of Jose Fernandez’ first pitch.”

Will you cry? Yes, a little. But only because of your sciatica. Because you will develop terrible sciatica, it seems.

Carson Cistulli has just published a book of aphorisms called Spirited Ejaculations of a New Enthusiast.

I know it’s only been 2 innings, but this kid looks LEGIT. Easy cheese (93-96, great command, and he seems very poised for his age (20). He’s made the Mets hitters look pretty foolish so far. I am impressed.

Still angry that he is up, but so excited. The kid is completely filthy

Im looking through the replies on a NotGraphs post and wondering how I will be much less useful at some point in my future.

The Fernandez GIF that needs to be made is the changeup he threw to Ike Davis in the 2nd inning. Filthy. I believe it was on a 1-1 count.
