The longest home runs for the week ending July 9th

We’ve ended our second Giancarlo-less Friday…and that’s not a good thing. However, some of his friends tried to pick up the slack for him this week. They didn’t really succeed all that much, but hey, at least they tried! Also, all five of the homers are from the last three days. This wasn’t by design and isn’t because I’m lazy – it just sort of happened. 1. Mike Trout...
