TPC Video Break: Chris Carter and Michael Stanton

As we get ready for the start of a new week, it's a good idea to get the juices flowing, and what better way to do that than to watch a couple of guys who can really jack the ball.  Here's a clip of Michael Stanton hitting a game winning walk-off home run last summer.  You can't see much about his swing, but when he connects, you know it's gone.

There's another shot of the hit from the opposite side of home plate, but it's part of a news broadcast so you have to watch about a minute worth of talking before it shows Stanton actually swinging the bat (I might be wrong, but to me Stanton sounds like The Rock in this clip).

The next clip is of Chris Carter of the Oakland organization. Once again, you can't see much of the swing, but pay attention to how big Carter looks when he leaves the batting cage and walks past the next hitter. That's either a kid walking by him, or Carter is just one huge dude.

If anyone has better clips of either of these guys, please let me know. I'd love to get a closer look at both of them.
