Okay, not quite Pride Rock but nonetheless...
NAAAAAAAAA SUSPENYAAAAA, BABADEEEEE SEEBABA!!! I forgot just how beautifully violent Yo's swing was over his two year hiatus, not to mention the cockiness of La Potencia's bat flips.
After a roughly 2 year layoff, Yo still knows beisbol and clutch hitting since he picked up right where he left off.
The craziest shit is that those games have to have the longest gap between two of the home runs ever.
Everything about that blast had my dumb brain pumping in the same dopamine it did back in 2015 as Yo took out every ounce of aggression from that non-horse, yes-boar injury on a poor piece of cowhide. Not only is Yo motivated to get back whatever money the Wilpons took from him by incentivizing his contract but he is also looking to maybe wet the beak with some Uncle Stevie cash next year since the DH probably isn't going anywhere any time soon.
God damn it feels good to have stupid Opening Day optimism once again.
