The Oakland A’s absolutely destroyed the Toronto Blue Jays last night 16-o (worst home shutout loss in team history), and by the second inning the game was such a laugher that Oakland rightfielder Josh Reddick decided to spice things up a bit by climbing the outfield wall, a la Spider-Man, to rob the Jays Travis Snider of extra bases.

Sure it made the catch look impressive as all get out, but there really was no need for Reddick to scale the wall as he did.  As you’ll see, he gets up there, then has to wait a bit for the ball to come to him to make the catch.  I swear he almost had enough time for a cigarette and a cup of tea while he was hanging off the wall.  A short, well-timed jump from the warning track and Roddick could have made the grab just as easily as he did, but apparently the man likes climbing things.

Have at it, Josh “Spider-Man” Reddick…

I don’t blame Reddick for making the catch seem more difficult than it really was—he’s just competing for the entertainment dollar.
