Holy Cow, today was a busy day, with the monster play I posted about earlier seemingly the only time to relax. I'm too tired to post much tonight, so just a quick few shots of a monster hit Anthony did this afternoon. His game has definitely moved up a notch since last year's baseball play.

He'd hit it so hard that the thick plastic ball actually dented. You can see it dented even in the first shot above.

One comment so far...

Oh great, now that he’s showing some promise, he’ll get traded to the Yankees. Sigh. Nice job, slugger!
