We’ve got some real winners on defense this week. Let’s kick this off right, shall we? July 2nd, Rockies vs Nationals – a picture perfect double play. What a gorgeous double play, and I’m actually not sure what the best part is – D.J. LeMahieu’s flip, or Troy Tulowitzki’s catch and throw. Call it a draw. July 2nd, Rangers vs Orioles – the most casual robbery ever. Check out Leonys Martin here – he didn’t care at all about the difficulty level on this home run robbery of Nelson Cruz. That takes some skill. July 3rd, Astros vs Angels – must-watch, all the time. George Springer isn’t just a marvel with the bat in his hands – he can make his share of awesome defensive plays too. July 4th, Blue Jays vs Athletics – does he get an extra assist here? Josh Donaldson started this double play from his butt. I couldn’t even begin to fathom how much arm strength it takes to wing a ball from third base to second base while sitting down. July 5th, Marlins vs Cardinals – Shelby lays out. This was one hell of an athletic play by Shelby Miller. If he hesitates for even a second, that run scores. Jujly 5th, Mariners vs White Sox – Adam Eaton goes all out. Adam Eaton took one hell of a route to this ball, but the most important thing is that he got the out. I’d love to see the FieldF/X numbers on this one… July 5th, Dodgers vs Rockies – Puig gonna Puig. Yasiel Puig continues to amaze the world. A diving catch at the warning track, *and* the assist to nail the runner going to third base? Just stop it. July 6th, Astros vs Angels – Mike Morin’s concentration. Mike Morin did was he was supposed to do here. If you’re the pitcher, you don’t want to get involved in a pop-up on the infield – let your fielders take care of that. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you *won’t* be involved….
