Chicks Dig the Long Ball
An early nominee for baseball highlight of the year: Dodgers pitcher Hong-Chih Kuo blasting a homer off John Maine on Tuesday and then flipping the bat away in a combination of pure glee and disdainful scorn for the pitch he just annihilated like a juiced-out-of-his gourd Bret Boone circa 2001.
Wrote one youtube viewer in the comments section below the video, "sickest pimp job of a homer ever."
We're not sure we could have phrased it better ourselves.
John Maine should have immediately been ejected for serving this thing up.
If anyone can find Vin Scully's call of this homer, we'd love to hear it. The only version we could find is... umm... not in English. Though we did understand the announcers when they said "Back-to-back-to-back." (Kuo's homer was the third straight for the Dodgers.)
As far as we can tell, they did not use the term "pimp job."
