This is mostly an excuse to post some power-ish memes, but unless you’ve been sticking your head in the sand, Kris Bryant has been destroying baseballs with impunity and Javier Baez looks like he’s starting to wake up. Even Starlin Castro uncorked a no-doubt long-ball tonight.
Javy Baez goes deep! He smacks a 2-out solo home run for his 9th HR of the season! Iowa leads 1-0, T1.

It’s getting close to the time when we can get really really excited, and while it’s unlikely either Baez or Bryant will get called up to the big club anytime soon, their days in the minors are numbered as long as they continue to deposit baseballs into low-Earth orbit. The Cubs front office certainly had a plan going when they targeted guys who could hit for power, and it’s only a matter of time before we see them shatter windows across the street from Wrigley Field. I know I’m getting a bit too excited and we should temper our expectations, but I really can’t help myself. This is awesome.
Even Emperor Palpatine is excited:
Soon they will reveal themselves to MLB. Soon they shall have their revenge.
And I promise that will be the last time in a while that I will reference the crappy dialogue from the Star Wars prequels.
