Derek Dietrich is taking the city of Cincinnati by storm. The Reds infielder/outfielder has done plenty on the field – including leading the team in OPS, where he’s hitting .242/.352/.615 for an OPS of .967. His home run out of PNC Park led to great memes all around the internet of him staring that bad boy down. It also led to Yasiel Puig vs every last Pirate on the planet memes, too. And then there was Derek Dietrich, professional apiarist. Or maybe you prefer Derek Dietrich, professional electrician? Personally, I enjoyed Derek Dietrich, professional 1911 face painter/baseball player.
On Thursday afternoon it was just Derek Dietrich, professional baseballer for the Cincinnati Reds who joined Chris Rose and Kevin Millar on MLB Network’s Intentional Talk. Give it a watch.
Two quick takeaways:
Derek Dietrich is wrong about Yasiel Puig. HE IS elegant and beautiful. Jesse Winker drew that glorious mustache and it will go down in Reds history.
