Just a little bit closer to Opening Day

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Yankees Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies and Yankees played yesterday and Giancarlo Stanton had a ball leave the bat at 120 miles per hour.

Think about that for a second. Say you’re a third baseman. You have to stand somewhere in the vicinity of 100-120 feet away from him and he’s hitting rockets that leave the bat that hard. I’m not even sure that was humanly possibly even 25 years ago with the consistency that Stanton does it.

It’s not important, but I still just marvel at it.

On to the links.
