Video: Yoenis Cespedes blasts grand slam in Grapefruit League debut

The grand slam was also put into GIF form courtesy of MLB GIFS on Twitter:

Yoenis Cespedes is starting his Detroit Tigers career with a bang. Cespedes hit an absolute bomb of a grand slam today in the Grapefruit League opener against the Baltimore Orioles. The grand slam extend the Tigers lead to 11-0 in the 4th as the Tigers would go on to dismantle the Orioles 15-2. Let’s hope this is a sign off things to come with Cespedes.

Brad Ausmus’ “Loyalty Program” is Killing the Tigers

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing, the same way, over and over again and expecting different results. In my book, Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is the most insane man in baseball. All season long, Ausmus has labeled his relief pitchers as being a “6th inning guy”, or an “8th inning pitcher”, … Read more
