Dom Brown’s Bat-flip Is to Ridiculous as Dom Brown’s Bat Is to Red Hot

Jun 3, 2013, 10:39 PM EDT

Dom Brown’s ridiculousness continued on Monday night when his redhot bat torched the Miami Marlins en route to a 7-2 Phillies victory. Brown went 3-4 on the evening with 2 RBI and a run scored. It was his killing of a baseball in the sixth that got Phillies fans out of their seat, however. Not only did Brown put on a display of pure power with his sweet swing, he kept the show going with a pretty damn ridiculous hop out of the batters box and swag-filled bat flip.

I guess you can’t get called for being out of the base path on a home run trot, eh?

This was even more badass than yesterday, I’d say?

Brown is now tied with Miguel Cabrera for second most home runs in all of baseball with 17.

        BooKid, sorry you missed the irony.

      His nickname is Downtown Domonic Brown.

    I doubt Dom would approve of that nickname but he is exciting to watch and the current savior to hungry spectators… He hits some unlikely pitches in some difficult counts, so he’s as legit as it gets, hot streak or not. Dude made baseball history last month… give him some credit!

    so glad the team stuck with this guy when many were ready to give up on him. He’s flat out killing the ball right now and showing everyone why he has long been considered our #1 untouchable prospect. Best thing is, he’s young, so he’s still got plenty of years left to help us get through the rebuild and lead us into the next era of Phillies baseball.

      I feel like there has to be some in between. Can’t give up on the guy at age 25, but he really wasn’t good for his first few trips to the majors. All he needed was a steady spot I suppose. At the same time people really shouldn’t proclaim him the franchise savior because he’s going nuts for the 2nd straight month. I love the tear he’s on.. i love the swagger too (in small doses). I just hope it doesn’t get to Dom and sink that ship.

    The in-between is this: the Phillies screwed with this kid for 2 years – bringing him up to the Show and then sitting him, shuttling back and forth to AAA, moving from right to left. His wrist injury is a thing of the past, he’s clicked with Wally Joyner as his hitting coach (go back and look at the change in his swing; compare this year to 2011) and he is finally showing why the Phillies refused to trade him. He’s not Black Jesus, but let’s just enjoy the ride – mmmkay?

    when is he gonna catch one in the ribs for the bat flips?

    • Jay D - Jun 4, 2013 at 2:19 PM

      I totally agree with that….
      all the crap after he hits it too…reminds me of reyes.

      that said i love the way he’s playing….just keep it legit

      The bat flip, hand gestures and Howard shenanigans is a bit much, so when the hot streak ends… what then? Head down, tail between the legs and maybe Howard will draw a walk or create a hit for a change.
      “in you face Dormant Brown” snickers Howard from first base.

    Keith Law years ago said Domonic Brown was just one of those guys who needed to learn at the Major League level. He was too good for Triple A, so he wasn’t quite gaining anything from the experience. At the same time, the Phillies were unwilling to throw an unpolished guy into an already crowded outfield while they competed for a championship. Now with Victorino, Werth, Ibanez, Pence, and company gone — and with the Phillies sputtering along — they had no choice but to play him. Let’s ride the wave, gents.

    De-MONIC!!!! Whats wrong with a little bat flip? You hit a homerun & show some emotion. He gets around the bases nice and quick in his HR trot……
