- We read your crazy-ass emails (7:45-28:45)

- Salt and Pepa and Animals as Leaders up in the limousine (29:2-34:15)

- Every Wednesday night, Evan Funk Davies, not Marley Marl (34:15-53:55)

- Baseball talk til my tape popped (54:42-1:20:11)

  • BASEDBALL IS BACK
  • Mike Trout is rich (and very good at baseball)
  • Miguel Cabrera is also rich (and good at baseball) and the Tigers are dumb

Mike Trout’s Swing Is A Beautiful Thing

This is Mike Trout's three-run home run off of Felix Rodriguez last night.

The pitch: A 3-2 changeup.

The swing: Freaking gorgeous.

The velocity off the bat: 106.8 mph

The elevation angle: 21.9º (most home runs are hit at a 25-to-45º  elev. angle)

The distance: 397 feet

The verdict: That’s an absolute seed.

Big thanks to hittrackeronline and brooksbaseball for providing data that I can’t stop geeking out on.
