We’ll admit it: we’re not experts in physics. So, while we’d love the be able to explain how the Phillies’ Marlon Byrd broke his bat today swinging at a pitch with which he did not even make contact, we can’t.

All we can say for certain is that Byrd must have some crazy upper body strength. That, or maybe the bat was cracked. The truth shall likely remain a mystery forever.
