Prince Fielder hit a home run against Brandon Morrow a few minutes ago. Among the people impressed by Fielder’s home run was Prince Fielder himself.
And more to wit:
Note: gentleman internet-surfer Matt_HBB provides a different view for the people’s enjoyment.
That’s kinda douchey. Spring training game, Prince. Chill.
So his bat flipping skill isnt season ready yet. It’s spring training game, Donut. Chill.
Everyone knows that bat flips in spring training don’t matter; the sample size is too small
Prince literally does a bat flip on basically every hit. I am not sure if he can even stop at this point.
And there you have it: Brandon Morrow’s 2012 season was a mirage.
morrow outperformed FIP and xFIP by 3/4ths of and a full run, respectively in 2012. mirage is too harsh though.
He’ll be drilled during the season in his fat keister
maybe this is a technique hitters will employ now in this new, run depressed era. OBP at any cost!
ST is a time for practice. Prince obviously was obviously unhappy after reviewing tape with his 2012 celebratory performances and spent the offseason refining his bat-flipping game.
Gotta appreciate a man who takes his art seriously.
Check out the home run and pimp job by former Major Leaguer Wladimir Balentien in a pre-WBC exhibition game against Cuba!
Maybe it’s just the angle but does the left fielder look like he dramatically misjudged his chance to catch the ball?
It looks like the left fielder is 10 yards to the right of the line that the ball landed on – poorly phrased ugh…
Man, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an in-front-of-the-plate bat flip. That’s pretty bold.
It actually looks almost exactly like this legendary (to Mets fans) bat flip from Mike Piazza in 1999:
Most impressive to me is that he made it past the dirt cutout on the fly.
He didn’t have much of an opportunity to do much bat flipping against the Giants in the World Series.
Pretty sure that’s a momentum thing, due to his forearms and hands coming back from over his shoulder, and not anything deliberate.
Prince is working on his moves for slowpitch softball career…
Long but pretty funny…
Mets Spring Training drills…
Shades of Brett Boone
Very douchey but still fun to watch.
Wish it was in the MLB13 game…
