Lord have mercy. After pissing off the Pirates fans and broadcast team for taking too long to run the bases on Monday night, Derek Dietrich had the perfect way of showing them what he thought about their faux outrage and calls for him to be plunked in the game Tuesday night.
What did he do? I’m glad you asked.
He hit not one, not two, but THREE home runs off of the Pirates. I haven’t taken a peek behind the curtain yet but I’d pay $100 right now for the tape of the Pirates broadcast booth for each and every one of the bombs. Heads were exploding.
Here they are, all in one nice clean video for your viewing pleasure.
Did Derek’s celebration for each of his THREE homers of the night pass the Pirates’ smell test?
Derek Dietrich has been on an absolute mission to destroy the city of Pittsburgh one home run at a time and I’m loving every second of it.
The guy has so much confidence and swagger that it’s hard not to think is been infectious throughout the clubhouse.
He loves being a Cincinnati Red and we love him. It’s a match made in heaven and I can’t wait to see how the rest of his season unfolds.
Hopefully we get to see him win the Home Run Derby in his hometown of Cleveland later this summer. If he’s not considered/asked, then there’s no point in watching it. Seeing two former Marlins in Christian Yelich and Derek Dietrich go toe to to in the Derby will be fun for baseball, fun for the NL Central and torture for Derek Jeter.Follow @BennyMacBlog
