Another week of bombs is behind us. Some of the names are familiar, some are not. However, one thing is for sure – a couple of these blasts are truly majestic. 1. Oswaldo Arcia vs Andre Rienzo, 468 feet (August 3rd) Arcia nearly hit this ball out of US Cellular Field. I don’t care where you’re playing, but when that happens, you know you’ve put a charge into a baseball. 2t. Miguel Cabrera vs Tyler Matzezk, 445 feet (August 2nd) I love how the announcers undersold this homer by Cabrera before the damn thing carried over the center field wall and behind some of the shrubbery in the batter’s eye at Comerica. 2t. Michael McKenry vs Chris Rusin, 445 feet (August 6th) Smashing a ball onto the concourse at Coors Field takes a lot of strength. McKenry was just a couple of feet from getting this ball there. 4. Carlos Gomez vs Ryan Vogelsong, 443 feet (August 6th) Carlos Gomez, you’re gross. This homer reminded me of something we saw during the 2002 Home Run Derby at Miller Park. 5. Matt Holliday vs Zach Duke, 435 feet (August 3rd) Half way up the grandstand in deep left center at Busch Stadium…woof. Holliday also pimped this homer a lot more than you’d expect from him. Five longest homers of the year 1. Mike Trout vs Jason Vargas, 489 feet (June 27th) 2. Giancarlo Stanton vs Eric Stults, 484 feet (April 4th) 3. David Ortiz vs Masahiro Tanaka, 482 feet (April 22nd) 4. Justin Upton vs Jenrry Mejia, 477 feet (April 10th) 5. Hanley Ramirez vs Jorge de la Rosa, 472 feet (June 8th) List appearances Giancarlo Stanton, 7 Michael Morse, 4 Justin Upton, 3 Jose Abreu, 2 Jose Bautista, 2 Billy Butler, 2 Juan Francisco, 2 Todd Frazier, 2 Matt Holliday, 2 Torii Hunter, 2 Hunter Pence, 2 Anthony Rizzo, 2 George Springer, 2 Mark Trumbo, 2 Scott Van Slyke, 2 Matt Adams, 1 Pedro Alvarez, 1 Oswaldo Arcia, 1 Alex Avila, 1 Brandon Barnes, 1 Xander Bogaerts, 1 Miguel Cabrera, 1 Jason Castro, 1 Lonnie Chisenhall, 1 Michael Choice, 1 C.J.
