Hot GIFs: Freddy Garcia Is Duly Impressed

When you talk about Carson Cistulli, what you’re talking about is a guy who knows how to first (a) watch a baseball game one night and then (b) make three GIFs from that game at some point during the following afternoon, with a view to justifying his existence on the company payroll.

In this case, what Carson Cistulli has done is to make three GIFs from Thursday night’s A’s-Yankees game (box), during which game Cuban emigre Yoenis Cespedes hit a home run that compelled veteran right-hander Freddy Garcia to discover physics again for the first time.

For the benefit of the reader, who is likely busy using large-bosomed women as barbells on the sandiest possible beaches of the Florida coastline, I have taken the liberty of organizing last night’s events in chronological order, clearly demarcating the order of those events with clarity.

Note: all GIFs are clickable, embiggenable.

****

No. 1

This is of Yoenis Cespedes swinging at a Garcia curveball with what might be considered “abandon.”

No. 2

This is of where the ball — the one at which Cespedes swung with abandon — this is to where it went in the Oakland Coliseum.

No. 3

This is Freddy Garcia not actually minding that much about what just happened.

Cespedes hits ball very far.
It’s very fun to watch Cespedes hit ball very far.

I can’t wait until we get to see Cespedes compete in a HR derby.
I may be one of the only people who are still fans of the HR derby; but watching guys swing with abandon, and as a result hitting a ball further than I could dream of hitting it, is fun for me.

Scouting Report on Yoenis Cespedes: Get ahead in the count, then throw him off speed breaking pitches low in the strike-zone to get him to chase after it.

This is what the scouting report has said since his first weekend in the majors. But guess what scouts? You might wanna rewrite that scouting report. Cause even though he chases it and Ks about half the time, the other half he hits the ball 120 mph on a line.

Saw this one in person last night. The Cuban Missile is living up to his nickname. And they’re running out of ideas on how to pitch to him.

A great little place I like to visit has nicknamed him La Potencia, I approve.

The awesome part is that it was a 69 mph pitch that was sent to a place not many balls go!
