It has been way too long since we’ve gotten to see Javy Báez really, truly, absolutely destroy a ball. He has it in him, but this years, he’s just been off at the plate.

Carrasco knew immediately that that thing was way gone. On top of the batter’s eye in center field, out at 108.8 mph, and a whopping 450 feet. That had to feel good. Did for me.
