The great defense got jacked up to another level this week. Some of these plays…man, I’m speechless.
July 30th and 31st, Angels vs Orioles – Manny Machado’s got a cannon.
Manny Machado is great at defense. Even if Albert Pujols is much slower in his older age, these throws in back to back games by Machado were just gross.
July 31st, Braves vs Dodgers – Dee Gordon lays out.
This play by Dee Gordon was gross – barehanded, going airborne, parallel to the grass…man. He did it all.
August 1st, Yankees vs Red Sox – Mookie time.
Reminder: Mookie Betts is a converted infielder, just like Brock Holt. He shouldn’t be making gross catches like this.
August 2nd, Blue Jays vs Astros – Robbie Grossman, public enemy number one.
This was a great catch by Grossman to rob Juan Francisco of a home run, but nobody told Robbie Grossman the number one rule to get onto my most-hated list – don’t rob Juan Francisco of home runs.
