GIF: Yu Darvish Throws a First-Pitch Strike

Because the author, alienated from his humanity by the forces of Capitalism, has no other means by which to establish contact with others than to capture and reproduce video on this absurd corner of the internet, is maybe one reason why he’s made an animated GIF tonight of Yu Darvish throwing an equally absurd first-pitch slider (for a strike) to Matt Joyce from this evening’s Rangers-Rays game.

Another reason is maybe because, having witnessed that same absurd first-pitch slider from Yu Darvish to Matt Joyce from the aforementioned Rangers-Rays game that’s happening tonight, the author felt compelled to share that moment with others, for the purposes of their communal fucking wonderment.
