The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers squared off in a double-header yesterday. That’s cool and everything, but, honestly nothing matters right now unless we’re talking about Joc Pederson — who hit not one, but, two homers to the friggin’ MOON.
The first of which was ‘eh…’, only 477 feet — 5 rows deep into the second deck at Coors Field, right center field.
The second came only a few hours later, this one tallying 480 feet — the official season-high for longest home run of the 2015 season.
No doubt about it! Joc Pederson blasts 480-foot home run. It's the longest home run by any batter this season. http://t.co/sV2c5ReUUX— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) June 3, 2015

When it landed TWENTY rows deep, DEAD center field (~415 to the fence) — even Clayton Kershaw was like…
Despite batting a paltry .254 thus far, Pederson now has 14 home runs this season — and is on an absolute tear. Honestly, he could bat .054 for all I care … as long as the 1 hit every 20 at-bats looks like this, he’s got my vote for MVP.
YOUR MOVE, GIANCARLO STANTON.
