Lost in the hoopla of yesterday’s huge extra-inning comeback win by the Birds was this little bit of insanity.
Game situation: Bottom of the 11th inning, game tied 7-7. Mark Reynolds leads off for the Orioles, facing Oliver Perez of Seattle. Two ball, two strike count.
And away we go:

I was chatting on GMail with a buddy at the time. Here are our reactions to the above:
Chop: bahahahahahahame: hahahahahaChop: omgwtfme: that’s gonna be a great gif
And thank you, internet. It is now a great gif.
I don’t want to bag on the sheriff too much – his defense late in Monday’s game is a big reason why the O’s have a chance for the 3-game sweep tonight.
But man…that swing.
As @biggsnake on twitter said (and this is where we ask our younger readers to avert their eyes):
“He looked like he was trying to kill a fly with a dildo.”
Mark Reynolds – most gif-able Oriole.
