Video: Juan Francisco Invents New Kind of Home Run

When baseball analysts look at Juan Francisco, they see a player who “doesn’t play defense that well” and “has little understanding of the strike zone — a.k.a. a really important thing.”

When the aesthete looks at Juan Francisco, he (i.e. the aesthete) sees a Dominican David, slaying the Goliath known as Mortality.

Or, at least that’s what he probably sees. It might also just be something on his glasses.

Canadian Handshake to my friend Matt Klaassen who alerted me to this Situation, and David Brown for bringing it to Society’s attention.
