Joc Pederson is the truth.
Through the first 22 games of the season, young Joc is rocking a .300/.463/.633 slash line to go with five homers, and 14 RBIs.

Most importantly, though, Joc’s (accidentally) got his walk-up game on lock.
During Friday night’s game against the D-backs, Pederson was due up with the bases loaded in the second inning when his teammates hijacked his walk-up music, forcing the rookie center fielder to approach the batter’s box to Hanson’s 1996 [sic] smash hit “MMMbop.”
